Spend a week playing and learning about chess from the Shining Knights chess coaches! Our coaches are highly-rated professional chess instructors who have taught tens of thousands of children to play. Many have won state and national championships. Campers are assigned to groups by skill level, and classes are tailored to appeal to total beginners through experienced and highly-rated tournament players. Each camper receives a T-shirt and a tournament-style chess set. Activities include learning openings, tactics and endgames, studying master games, playing games against fellow students and analyzing the students' games. Campers will take short breaks for snacks and fresh air every hour and full-day campers have lunch and recess from Noon – 1:00pm.
