2018 Summer Chess Camp

Because this is our 28th year of offering camps, our counselors are among the most experienced chess teachers found anywhere.  We coordinate daily activities and instruction to expand the students' chess skills.  Chess is known to teach logic, problem solving, analysis techniques, and will improve study habits.  These skills will carry over to school and career. 
But the main reason kids come back is. . .
We have fun!!
