In chess camp (ages 5-13), campers play and learn 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. 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.
Learn to create stories, games, and animations using Scratch, a fun and easy-to-learn visual programming language. Coders from beginners to advanced will be challenged through fun projects of various difficulty levels. Camp is appropriate for anyone who hasn't done one of Silver Knights programs before. At the end of the week, campers receive a T-shirt and USB containing their programs.
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.
