For Beginning and Intermediate Players!

THE PROGRAM

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.

THE STAFF

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.
