What to bring: a bagged lunch that doesn’t need to be refrigerated, and a water bottle (This is a peanut and nut-free camp.) Morning and afternoon snacks will be provided. No chess equipment is necessary. Pizza will be provided on Friday, August 23, so no lunch necessary that day. 😋

Cancellation and refund: I understand that plans can change, so camp tuition is fully refundable minus a $20 processing fee through Thursday, August 15.  

What will the kids do at chess camp? In the morning after some warm up and casual play, they will play a daily tournament game (with rated and unrated sections depending on experience level) Kids will be grouped with other players according to experience level. (To answer the inevitable question of all of the campers, Yes!, there will be trophies for the top tournament performers 😃. ) After the games are completed, they can review them with the instructors. (This is the best way to improve at chess). The rest of the day is comprised of interactive chess lessons, lots of casual chess play and “chess choice time”, snack, recess, lunch, and fun chess-related activities such as team chess, chess trivia and puzzle contests. You can view the schedule of activities here. I have organized and worked at many chess clubs over the years and the kids usually have fun and even learn some chess. :) (See parent testimonials here.)
