Drop-Off: Campers enter through the Lobby (Details to be provided upon registration) and meet camp faculty and staff in the room for morning roll-call and announcements.
Morning Session: After an initial skills assessment, campers are divided into three groups. Tactical Tune Up campers play a round of chess using a G/15 time control. Students finishing their game early work with a tutor to review and analyze their game. Checkmate Challenge campers work on honing their middle and endgame checkmate techniques. Chess Crash Course campers start with the foundation of pawn and piece movement, and game-play.
Late-Morning Session: Campers go to their assigned groups. Instructors will cover a skill level-appropriate topic divided between classroom-style learning and hands-on exercises.
Lunch: Spend some down-time chatting with friends in the ThinkPark tower or Gate City Osaki. [NOTE: Lunch is not provided. Please bring money to purchase lunch.]
Afternoon Session: Campers go to their assigned groups. Instructors will cover a skill level-appropriate topic divided between classroom-style learning and hands-on exercises.
Special Event- Kendama Workshop: It could consist of a simul, team human chess, or an opportunity to play Kendama. (Bring your own Kendama if you have!)
August Birthday Party: Everyone deserves a “hip, hip, hooray” on their birthday. That’s why we throw a monthly party for our birthday kids of the month. [NOTE: Please notify us if your
child's birthday is in August.]
