Summer Chess Camps

We look forward with great excitement to our 2018 Summer Chess Camps!

Summer camps provide an accelerated learning environment as students have access to chess over a 40 hour week. 

Not only are Summer camps a great opportunity for rapid chess improvement, they also provide a perfect social environment to meet and become friends with engaged chess players from across NYC. 


Camps also provide tons of summer fun including playground play, sports, water play, ice-cream, arts/crafts and much more!
