About the Camp

The Free Thanksgiving Break Chess Camp will take place online on November 

27th, 28th and 29th. All participants will earn points by taking part in skill appropriate lessons, completing training assignments and playing in exciting camp chess tournaments. Prizes will be awarded to the top point earners during camp and all students who participate for three days will receive a camp certificate. Players over 21 are welcome but will not be eligible for prizes. Class time will be from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm Pacific Time.
