Inspired by top-level training experiences the GRCC would like to offer players the opportunity to accelerate their improvement through compact training camps. Training camps are structured learning camps where teaching and practical exercises are combined to create a truly engaging and powerful learning opportunity. Top players take this approach to improve and so the Grand Rapids Chess Center wants to take this excellent training approach for our beginner and new players to fast-track them to competitive success. Designed for older elementary students as well as adult players participants will enjoy a competitive, fun, and engaging environment. Check out our offerings below.

In this camp, designed for players new to the game, scholastic, or lower USCF class players, players will learn key strategic principles and approaches to endgame play that will immediately pay off in their games.
