Chess.com University's most recent online chess camp featuring GM Boris Gelfand went great and now we've scheduled our next camp: Chess.com University's Online Youth and Novice Chess Camp: September 27th-28th, 2014!
This camp will feature a lot of great information brought to you by many talented chess coaches. The instructors who will be teaching during the camp include Kairav Joshi (camp organizer, instructor and president of Chess.com University), GM Mac Molner (special guest instructor and 2014 U.S. National Championship Contender), NM Dane Mattson (Assistant Instructor in Chess.com University's Gelfand Camp) and myself, FM Dalton Perrine (Assitant Instructor in Chess.com University's Gelfand Camp).
This camp is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to improve their game in a short amount of time! Especially if you have school or work during the week, then the scheduling for this camp works terrific for you. The camp lasts two days during a weekend and has a lot of different events including simuls with chess masters, interactive lectures with instructors, and a student game analysis session. Homework will be given to each student during the first day of camp and will be discussed and reviewed during the second day. There will also be a live session for chess parents who want to learn more about scholastic chess and they'll also be able to learn how to take their kids to the international level in chess!
The entire camp will feature about 9 to 10 hours of live instruction (including lectures and game analysis sessions) and the opportunity to play against a chess master in a simul. All students who register for the camp can submit one game before the camp begins to be analyzed during the camp. We instructors will choose the best and most instructive games to use during the game analysis sessions. It may end up being your game! We will also be helping students work through the homework problems during the second day so that you understand the aswers and reasoning behind each move. That way you'll be able to see into the mind of a chess master
This specific online camp is targeted at players rated below 1200 USCF/FIDE. While there is no age restriction with the camp, it is primarily aimed at youth players between the ages of 7-14. This is mentioned because the language used during the camp will be designed for youth players. But if you feel that the information learned during the camp will benefit you, feel free to register for it! All of this information in the camp comes at the very reasonable price of $75/person if you register by September 15th. It will be $85/person if you register after that date.
