Our Beginner Camp is for youth who are new to chess or have some experience. 

This camp will teach

  • Opening principles
  • First six mating strategies
  • Some of the basic tactics including pins, forks, skewers and discovered check. 

Students will participate in a 5 round tournament competing for trophies and medals  

We encourage students to come to camp knowing how to move the pieces.  This can be done easily for free on many websites.  One useful website is www.chesskid.com where students can get a free basic membership and take the first six lessons. 

Please Note:  If there are not enough students for either class, the two will be combined into one class.
