About Chess Camp

Whether your child is a casual chess player or tournament participant, this exciting enrichment camp will improve every child's game. Camp instructors use a range of teaching tools including demo boards, computer tutorials, worksheets, stories and historic games to keep class time exciting. Each half-day consists of two hour-long chess lessons tailored to the ability of the children and one hour of practice to play against other students and instructors. USA Chess camps are a perfect way to give children a fun week of learning chess while challenging their minds!


ALL CAMPERS RECEIVE A CHESS SET, NOTATION BOOK, T-SHIRT, AND TROPHY!


Typical Day: Chess Programs

The camp schedule is structured, but at the same time it is fun. Classroom size for our chess program averages 12-15 campers. We make every effort to group friends together, but groupings within the chess programs are dependent on the camper's chess playing ability. Teaching methods and lessons are specific to each instructor, but the main focus is the same: present the chess material in a fun, exhilarating and entertaining way. All necessary equipment is provided. There are no expectations placed upon the campers, and the atmosphere is very relaxed. A typical day in our chess program will include instruction, activities and, of course, an opportunity to try their new skills with an opponent. For half day campers, the day consists of two classroom lessons lasting an hour each, with an hour break in between for practice and snack. All-day campers follow the same schedule, with an hour break in between for practice and snack.


The final day of camp is Graduation Day. Parents have the opportunity to observe a chess lesson. Each camper is then called forward to receive a trophy and a certificate of achievement. Chess campers also receive a chessboard and pieces and a folder full of work completed throughout the week.


Instructors

Our staff is comprised of the best hand-picked children's chess instructors in North America. We feel so strongly about our instructors' abilities that we fly them to each of our camps from their home cities. Our selection process for instructors is highly competitive. In addition to in-person meetings, interviews and classroom observation, we conduct thorough background checks to ensure that only the best instructors are part of our team. Teaching children is their passion and their enthusiasm is infectious.
