Calling all Queens! This action packed female led girls only camp, will focus on the weakest squares on the board with a deep analysis on traps that utilize the f2 and f7 squares. Girls will develop & perfect traps such as fools mate, scholars mate, legals mate and more. Camp will consist of puzzles, challenges on the board and fun activities. We will also cover important endgame fundamentals.
This engaging camp encourages girls to become stronger players, develop skills faster and builds friendships- all while having fun!
