Summer Chess Camps
Spend a week playing and learning about chess from the Shining Knights chess coaches! Our coaches are highly-rated professional chess instructors. We have taught tens of thousands of children, including the 2008 national champions for first and second grade and the 2009 national kindergarten champion. Campers are broken up into groups by skill level, so we accept anyone from total beginners up through experienced and highly-rated tournament players. Each camper receives a T-shirt and a tournament-style chess set. Activities include learning openings, tactics, endgames, studying master games, playing games against fellow students, and analyzing the students’ games. Campers will take periodic breaks for snacks and fresh air, and full-day campers have lunch and recess from 12:00 – 1:00. Most camps are $310 for a full-day week (35 hours) or $185 for a half-day week (15 hours).
