For Beginning and Intermediate Players!


Students will be instructed in the foundational theory of chess and will then apply their newly acquired knowledge in games played with classmates and their national chess master teachers. While players are engaged in critical thought and active play, the instructors will provide tactical ideas and suggestions to improve the players’ strategies. Chess has been called “gymnastics for the brain” and research shows that studying the game can significantly improve academic achievement, concentration, and critical thinking. Additionally, the strategies and tactics that the players learn will benefit them on the game board and in life.


Chess Camp Director and National Chess Master Arkadiy Frenkel has over 30 years of international experience. He has taught at local schools such as Fort Garrison Elementary, Ilchester Elementary, McDonogh School, Park School, and the Montgomery County Public Schools. He has also taught at chess camps and schools in Virginia and Pennsylvania. Several of Frenkel’s students have won state and national tournaments, and the high school team he coached in 2010 placed second in the National Girls Team Championship. For this summer program, Frenkel will be joined by chess masters William Morrison and Glenn Segal.
