Weeklong Camps: A-E

CHESS

Chess Camp
In this camp, campers play and learn chess with Magnus Academy (formerly Silver Knights Enrichment)! We've taught 100,000 children, including national champions, but most students are beginners looking to learn and have fun. Campers are divided in groups by skill levels. Activities include learning the rules, openings, tactics, endgames, studying master games and playing lots of games against other students. Campers will take breaks for snacks and fresh air and have lunch and recess from noon to 1 p.m. At the end of the week, campers receive a t-shirt and chess set. All equipment is provided.

Instructor: Magnus Academy.
