This camp will feature a world-class chess curriculum
created specifically for each of the three skill levels:


Players who are just starting out, or players who know how the pieces move but are still learning all the ins, outs and strategies of the game

Intermediate Players

Players who know how to play an entire game and may have some familiarity with how to checkmate. These players might also know a few tactics and plans but need developing!

Advanced Players

Players who have played in many rated tournaments and are looking for a super-charged, super-challenging camp with expert/master level classes and tutorials

The entire camp is organized around the concept of teaching important chess concepts and ideas in extraordinarily fun and creative ways! We utilize games, trivia and more to help the students really retain the
information they are being given.

At the conclusion of these camps, the students will have mastered the concepts being taught while at the same time, having a blast! These June and July camps are being limited to 50 students per camp with 3 National Master coaches and three assistant coaches to keep the student/teacher ratio 8:1. This way we can focus on each student as an individual!

Logan is an up-and-coming chess player with a passion for adventure. He began playing chess at the age of 7 and has loved the game ever since. He is a United States Chess Federation Tournament Director, and coleader of the Northern Colorado Chess Club. When he’s not playing chess, Logan enjoys the challenge of rock climbing. His passion for climbing has taught him the importance of focus, determination, and perseverance, skills that have translated well to his chess game.

I am a musician and small business owner but chess is one of my greatest passions. I have been playing since 14 but haven’t been really competitive since the last couple years. I have an online rating that hovers around 1850 – 1900 but haven’t played enough rated over the board matches to have a legit OTB rating and aim to change that. I teach music for a living working with kids and adults and have been teaching chess for a little under a year now and absolutely love it. Teaching is my favorite way to learn and grow while helping others do the same. I would be a great choice for a beginner, intermediate, or advanced player though if you’re an advanced player Summit has some fantastic higher level coaches that may be a better option
