Specialty & Science Senior Chess New camp!

Ages 9–13

For advanced chess lovers! Working with skilled staff and a Chess Master, campers learn to “see” the chessboard just as the tournament professionals do. Campers will have the opportunity to review fundamentals, receive coaching and challenge other campers that have similar chess experience. Campers will be taught various strategies on how to open a game, defend a piece, mate, avoid stalemate and so much more. Skills will be put to the test with tournaments and other fun games. 

  • July 8–12 Session 1B | $415
  • August 6–9 Session 3B | $390*

* Please note: There are no camps on Monday, July 1 and Monday, August 5 due to statutory holidays.
