2019 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. Our pro NSCF teaching staff, led by National Master Ricardo Perez Billinghurst, is supplemented each week by a special guest instructor. This year, for intermediate and advanced students, we will study select lessons from the 2019 edition of Sunil's book "Best Lessons of a Chess Coach" (to be published this year)!

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.
