Our summer season of chess has kicked off with day camps at Churchill Road Elementary School in McLean, Virginia. During the last week of June we drew two dozen campers for the first week of camp designed for newer players, and twenty students have joined us at this week’s camp geared toward more advanced students.
The camp curriculum is designed to be challenging to every student who shows up. Our beginner students are learning basic endgame skills like checkmating with king and queen versus king or king and rook versus king, while our more advanced students are figuring out more difficult endgames. No matter their skill level, everybody leaves camp at the end of the week with more knowledge than they had at the beginning.
