Chess Summer Camps are the perfect way to introduce the game of chess to new students, deepen understanding of the game for established players, or offer intensive instruction for aspiring chess masters. Grandmaster instructors provide daily lessons, puzzles, and play to help guide students through each session. Instruction offers a solid basic foundation, emphasizing the fundamental skills needed to begin a lifetime of learning in chess.
Kids at the beginner to intermediate level can receive free chess lessons each Sunday at the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of St. Louis.
