Description

The Elements of Chess Excellence

This spring, we'll be exploring the elements of winning chess: the principles and strategies masters use to win game after game.  Our workshop format combines group instruction, hands-on training involving puzzles to solve and positions to play out, and formal competition to create a learning/training environment designed to increase both understanding and practical results.  Campers are divided into study groups based on their age and experience, thus allowing our instructors to tailor their teaching material to the specific needs of the kids in their group.

Format

The Chess Odyssey camp program has developed over 20 years and 193 camps:

Mornings are mostly devoted to group learning, small group coaching, skill building exercises, and individual interaction with our staff.  Afternoons are spent further developing skills and understanding in formal and recreational play.  Campers are divided into study groups based on their age and experience. Some of our students are state champions (we’ve trained 95 of them); others are figuring out how the pieces move. We treasure each and every one of them. Happy, excited kids having fun learning a great game with their friends is what we are all about.

What to bring

Lunch, snacks for morning and afternoon breaks, a water bottle, and your love of chess.
