Chess Challenge

Ages 8–12

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