Boylston School Break Chess Camp

The Boylston Chess Foundation presents the

Boylston School Break Chess Camp

Over the course of the 2007-2008 school year, the Boylston Chess Foundation is planning to hold a series of chess camps December, February, and April school recesses, as well as one just as school gets out in June.

December recess: 26th, 27th, 28th 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day

February recess: 19th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day

April recess: 22nd, 23rd, 24th, and 25th 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day

June (school’s out): 23rd, 24th, 25th, and 26th 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day

These chess camps invite young chess players who already have a complete understanding of the rules of chess to come and develop their abilities. With a combination of lecture, question/answer, and hands-on techniques, the instructor(s) will cover:

Tactics Strategy Openings Middlegames Endgames Problems

Students will develop their memory, critical thinking skills, sense of fairness, attention span, and have fun in the process.

Instructor: The head instructor will be Chess Master Jacob Rasin, an experienced coach who has been the coach of many of New England’s best young players and has inspired them to many championships.
