Students from 2nd grade through 8th grade are invited to join our exciting summer chess fun camp. We combine chess with other exciting activities/games.
Our chess camp provide a great place for students to learn the game of chess and have fun in a positive, safe environment supervised by experienced Positive Chess coaches. These instructors regularly challenge students with new opportunities and concepts, and actively model and promote valuable life skills.
Camps are designed with a low student to coach ratio that allows for a more personalized experience in which to teach chess for kids.
All camps utilize the Positive Chess Curriculum created by USCF Life Master Ramdake Lewis and the Positive Chess curriculum development team. Each day campers are encouraged to engage in critical skills and tactics such as opening principles, middle-game tactics, endgame strategies and more.
