Camps

For most kids, Holiday, Spring, and Summer vacations are their favorite times of year, when they have the whole day to play, have fun, and pursue some of their own interests. While we all love the freedom that comes with a day off from school, that doesn’t necessarily mean we also need to take a day off from positive learning experiences. Your children will be happy to know that even though our regular after school programs wrap up when school is not in session, they can still have fun with us at one of our many chess day camps, tournaments, and workshops.

In 2018, Chess Wizards will be offering full and half day camp programs for children at hundreds of locations across the United States, from the Bay Area in California to Long Island in New York and many places in between. Our camps expand on our everyday exciting chess instruction curriculum, providing an in-depth look at the game which will improve your child’s skills, regardless of their experience level. Students will also participate in exciting, strategy-themed physical activities, drawing from both classic camp games and some new activities of our own design. Add in some team chess games, healthy snacks, and some camp awards (and swag), and you have an experience that your kids will be asking about again on their next vacation break.

 

Age Range: K - 5 (5-12 years old)
