From beginner to experienced, chess lovers will enjoy unparalleled instruction in chess strategy. Working with skilled staff and a Chess Master, campers will learn to “see” the chessboard just like the tournament professionals do. They will be taught how to open a game, defend a piece, mate, avoid stalemate and so much more. Skills are put to the test with tournaments and other fun games.
