Seattle Schools: We support the Seattle School District teachers and students! In the event the school district does not hold classes as expected, this camp helps students learn chess, polish their skills and have fun playing chess. Your child can continue improving while the teacher strike situation gets sorted out. This camp is held in person in our Academy office at Green Lake at normal capacity.

Knowledge of chess moves and rules is required.
To get started in chess, the ChessKid videos here and here can be helpful!
Open to all students in grades K-8, from Beginners to Advanced.

Activities: Lessons in the morning and afternoon, tournament games, game review, chess puzzles, chess movies, solitaire chess! Students are divided into groups by skill level.

Camp activities include solving fun chess puzzles, learning cool openings, solving tricky tactics, mastering fundamental endgames, and playing casual games between students! Each camp features tournament games immediately analyzed by a chess master. We may separate into a second group with its own coach as appropriate for the skill levels, ages and there are enough students.

All camps are attended or conducted by International Master Georgi Orlov, 1994 US Open Champion, USCF Rated 2540, with a 4-Year Chess Education degree from Moscow, Russia. Also featuring Washington Chess Federation President, National Master Joshua Sinanan!
