Silver Knights teaches chess, Scratch coding and LEGO Robotics camps. Camps are one week long, and most have half day and full day options, and some have the option to do both subjects! We also have school break camps which are only one day long, with half day options. Campers will take breaks for snacks and fresh air, and full-day campers have lunch and recess from 12:00 – 1:00.
Play and learn to play at Chess Camp! We've taught tens of thousands of children including national champions, but most students are beginners looking to learn and have fun! Campers are broken up in groups by skill level. Each camper receives a T-shirt and a tournament-style chess set. Activities include learning the rules, openings, tactics, endgames, studying master games, and playing lots of games against other students.
In Silver Knights Coding Camp, children learn to create stories, games, and animations using a visual programming language called Scratch. It’s as easy to use as snapping together building blocks! With Scratch, children learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically. Projects like mazes and platform games make learning logic, coding, and animation fun and creative! Our curriculum teaches new coders the basics while challenging more experienced coders to create increasingly complex programs. Silver Knights provides a laptop for every child. At the end of the week, each child takes home a T-shirt and a USB with all their programs on it!
Our LEGO Robotics Camps combine the STEM challenge of robotics with the fun of LEGO! Build and code robotic vehicles, animals and machines using LEGO WeDo 2.0.
At our Mix and Match Camps, combine two half day camps in either chess, coding or LEGO Robotics or spend an entire day immersed in one subject! Click the “Camps” in the header above for our School Break Camps.
