In Chess Camp (Grades K-8), campers play and learning about chess with Silver Knights! 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. Activities include learning the rules, openings, tactics, endgames, studying master games, and playing lots of games against other students. Campers will take breaks for snacks and fresh air, and have lunch and recess from 12:00 – 1:00. At the end of the week, campers receive a t-shirt and chess set.
All refunds are subject to a $50 administrative charge per participant per camp session. Payment is not based on attendance; it is the responsibility of the guardian to cancel if the camper won't attend. Deadline to make any changes to camp registrations is 5pm the Monday prior to the camp start. No refunds will be issued for cancellations after that deadline.
Please list any special assistance or accommodations needed in the Message box on the Checkout page.
