Olympic Chess Camp Monday, July 11

Olympic Chess Camp

Come play the world’s oldest game with Athena! We’ve designed a high-energy, stimulating approach to chess that is great for all ages and skill levels. Students will spend much of their time playing with each other and challenging themselves with fun puzzles with plenty of breaks and fun games in between.

Whether they can’t tell the bishop from the rook, or are ready to master the London
System, campers will learn a lot, and have a ton of fun! At the end of the camp, students play a tournament and take home a trophy, as well as a new chessboard!

Ages: 6 – 12 Years Old

This camp runs Monday, July 11 – Friday, July 15, 1:00pm – 4:00pm

*Add lunch bunch for the week for $20!
