Frequently Asked Questions

What are the activities like at camp?
Chess Wizards is a fun way to have kids experience the excitement of chess. It is proven that chess enhances cognitive development in children, improves both verbal and mathematical skills, and increases all levels of academic performance! But, as much as we love chess and champion its cognitive and character benefits, we don't believe in asking an 8 year-old to stay inside for 3 or 6 hours and just play chess during their vacation. We've developed an interactive day-camp format that includes all kinds of activities to keep kids both physically and mentally engaged during their time with us. Team chess games, puzzles, skill-building, and chess variants are just some of the ways we integrate the whole person into our camp activities. A sample day might include exploration of a technical chess concept, fun group challenges which hone specific chess thinking patterns, a healthy snack, a mini-tournament, capture-the-flag, and blob tag — or creating and designing your own chess piece to be used in a practice game with your new friends. After all, it's camp… we want our students to make memories that they'll carry with them through the upcoming school year and beyond.
How old do you have to be to attend camp?
Our summer camp is designed for children ages 6-12.
What does my child need to bring to camp?
