Chess Festival

Grades Completed: 4, 5, 6

Camp #124: June 3-7, 2024, AM Camps (9am-12pm)

Location: Roper Elementary  

Fee: $11 Materials  

New and aspiring players will enjoy a wide array of fun chess activities, beginning with a simultaneous chess demonstration match. Learn the art of fast attacks while developing your own rock-solid defensive strategy. Solve puzzles, review the greatest game (and single-greatest move) ever played, then romp through history to meet the best chess champions ever. You will also play in a four-round, Swiss-System chess match where everyone takes home a tournament-style chess set. The final day ends with a blindfold chess demonstration, which you’ll just have to see to believe. 

Taught by Tom O’Connor, Midland University Professor
