CHESS CAMP- BEGINNERS PLUS/ INTERMEDIATE(GRADES 4-6)
July 18 - 22, 2022
Full Day (9am – 4pm)
Join us for our NEW half day Chess camps! Spend half the day with our chess instructors, and half the day sampling all that camp has to offer- swimming, sports and games, arts and crafts, and more!
Beginner Plus/ Intermediate Level:This class is geared towards students who already know chess rules/basics. It is preferable to have students who know all of the rules of chess before signing up for this chess session. This class will concentrate on the specific offensive and defensive strategies with a review of fundamental opening, middlegame, and endgame strategies.
Each week the students will be introduced to a new tactic and/or strategy such as pins, forks, discovered attacks, and skewers. Students will also learn basic checkmating patterns such as how to checkmate with a king and queen vs. king. We’ll learn about notations for reading (and writing) games. We’ll do lots of problem-solving work, so be prepared to exercise your brain. Students will be able to play with each other as well as their instructor to practice their skills and learn.
Please note: This camp must enroll to minimum enrollment in order to run.
