About Our Summer Chess Camp

Chess trains the mind and stimulates the intellect. It’s a game we can play all our lives, almost anywhere. At our summer chess camp, come learn from a chess master, our own Alexander Gustafsson, who has extensive experience teaching chess to children. He makes it fun and really helps students progress. He knows the right way to challenge and encourage every level of player. Open to students entering grades 1-5. There are sessions in Weeks 2, 5, 6, and 7. Note that week 2 is designed for absolute beginners, week 5 is for Waterford incoming second graders, and weeks 6 and 7 are for Waterford’s entering 3rd-5th graders, or others who have had prior training with Mr. Gustafsson or equivalent experience in classes or tournaments.

Please only sign up for one week, so that many can participate!
