Students will be exposed to all facets of the game including learning the rules, endgames, tactics, strategy, openings, review of master games, and chess history. Participants will also learn how to record chess notation, have opportunities to play fellow campers, and then analyze those games with a coach to identify errors and missed opportunities.
