The Beginner’s Chess Camp is for those students who are new to chess or have some experience. This camp will teach opening priniciples, the first six matching strategies, and if time permits, focus on some of the basic tactics including pins, forks, skewers, and discovered check. We encourage students to come to camp knowing how to mvoe 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. Students will participate in a five round tournament competing for trophies and medals.
