Course Description

Spend a week learning chess with Diplomat Chess! Diplomat Chess has taught thousands of children, including state and national champions, but the majority of our campers are beginners that are looking to learn and have fun. Campers will be grouped based on skill level, and activities will include learning the rules, strategy, tactics, opening, endgame, analysis of famous master games, and, of course, playing lots of games with fellow campers. There will be recess breaks throughout the day. Full-day and afternoon options are available. There is an option to purchase a tournament-style chess set to be distributed in camp for an additional +$24.
