Chess Camp 2019 is open to students entering 3rd -12th Grades in the fall, and will meet at here at Messiah Lutheran Classical Academy, from 1:00 – 4:00pm on the dates listed above.  We are offering two camps this year, and students may participate in either or both!

The camp is geared toward beginners and intermediate players.  Parents are also welcome to attend and participate at no extra cost.

Individualized and group instruction will include:  Basic Rules, Basic Checkmate Patterns, Tactics, Strategy, Openings, Middlegame, Endgame, Grandmaster Videos, and more!

Friday’s session will conclude with a championship tournament, with trophies for top finishers.

All participants will receive Knight or Rook certificate in recognition of course completion, as well as a chess book and a T-Shirt*.  Concessions will be available on site.

Our main instructor is Rev. Tom Chryst, who has over 20 years of experience playing and coaching young people in the “Game of Kings”.
