2018 Summer Chess Program:

Our daily program features a balance of formal chess instruction and friendly competition. All participants will receive both group and individual instruction. In addition to our pro NSCF teaching staff, each week features a special guest instructor. Plus students will make connections between chess and other subjects by learning about the great masters of the past. Using our new book “Great Moves: Learning Chess Through History,” each afternoon students will look at more advanced concepts in chess by studying games, presented with the “backstory” exploring the times in which these players lived. Material from the book is supplemented with modern games to reinforce the chess concepts.

A daily hot lunch and afternoon snack are included in the full time camp fee.

There is a half day option available ending or starting at noon. (Lunch is not included in the 1/2 day camp fee.)

Refunds/Cancellation Policy

Cancellations will be accepted up until noon on Friday in the week PRIOR to the start of your child's camp. Refunds are subject to a $25 administrative fee.

Instructor-recommended resources for beginning players.
