Camp Descriptions

Chess: Capture the King!  

Grades Completed: 2-4  

Camp #112: June 1-5, 9am-12pm

Location: Holmes Elementary  

Play the game of kings and queens! Learn all the rules, tactics and strategies necessary for basic play in addition to chess notation, history and literature. Expand from the chessboard with variants such as bughouse, simultaneous chess and a game against the computer. End your training in a five-round class tournament. At the open house on Friday, prepare to demonstrate how each chess piece moves and attacks on a human-sized chessboard. Thespian skills are optional as the queen attacks a pawn in this dramatic rendering.
