Chess is a valuable educational tool that helps teach students important lessons including problem solving, critical thinking, sportsmanship, patience, and goal setting, just to name a few!
Summer Camps at the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis are the perfect way to introduce the game of chess to new students, deepen the understanding of the game for established players or offer intensive instruction for aspiring chess masters.
Grandmaster instructors and other qualified staff will walk students through algebraic notation, proper piece and board set-up, chess clock usage (timers), basic tactics (forks, skewers, pins, double attacks, double check, en passant, x-ray, etc.), positional chess, development, advanced strategy/tactics and endgame skills.
Enrollment fee is $400 per student for the full day, or $200 for either of the half-day plans. A 10% early registration discount will apply for those registered before May 1. Register by phone, online or at the club.
