Final exam:
Demonstrate castling, en passant, the two-rook checkmate, one-queen checkmate, and one-rook checkmate, depending on how far the camper got on these drills earlier in the week. After Friday's final exams, three campers had mastered the two-rook mate, two had passed the one-queen mate, and three had passed the one-rook mate.
