Chess Summer Camps are the perfect way to introduce the game of chess to new students, deepen understanding of the game for established players, or offer intensive instruction for aspiring chess masters. Grandmaster instructors provide daily lessons, puzzles, and play to help guide students through each session.

Instruction offers a solid basic foundation, emphasizing the fundamental skills needed to begin a lifetime of learning in chess, including:

  • Proper piece and board set-up
  • Algebraic Notation (Chess Language)
  • Basic Principles of Play 

Grandmasters then provide expert instruction building on these skills and covering more advanced ideas, including:

  • Tactics
  • Strategy
  • Middlegame Planning
  • Endgame Technique

Each camp provides opportunities to practice these skills in a variety of activities and workshops with classmates under the observation of a Grandmaster and experienced Chess Instructors from the Chess Club.
