The first day of camp will include an introduction of all of the instructors and a review of how to use Zoom and chess.com. At 10:30 each day the students will divide into smaller groups (approx. 4-6 players each) for instruction that is tailored to their specific level and will return to the large group for more exercises before breaking for lunch.


Whole group instruction.

After lunch we will have a practice event. Each day of the week will feature a unqiue event. Games will be played using chess.com. All participants will need to create a free chess.com account. The instructors will download the games of the players for potential review during the lesson periods.


A tournament on chess.com. Players will also be able to see each other.

Each student will be assigned an instructor who will work with them once a week 1-on-1 for 30 minutes during one of the practice periods.
