Chess Club at CMA!

By: Casey Robinson on Oct 24, 2022 | Categories: General, Clubs

The Camden Military Chess Club has been meeting on Tuesday afternoons from 4:00 to 5:00 pm and is open to all cadets. We have cadets with varying skill levels from beginner to advanced. It has been a fun after school activity and also has the benefit of developing skills that are useful in life such as tactical and logical thinking skills, problem solving, planning and preparation. Cadets have the opportunity to make friendships and play a time honored traditional game that they enjoy. So far this year the cadets have met and competed with each other on campus. Most participants are from Band & Staff and Bravo Companies and one from Charlie Company.

Next semester we plan to schedule a competition or tournament with a few other schools and the cadets are looking forward to this!

Participating cadets this year include Cadets Abram, McClellan, Tarbox, Wawak, Del Alto, Freeman, Tondreau, Sackett, Cottam, Zhu, Roberts, Gravely, Turner, Aitshanov, and Campbell.

Faculty mentors are Senior Chief Petty Officer Shields and Captain Holman.
