What People Say
"No complaints here. My daughter had a great day. It's a full day camp and they do get a full day of chess. I think they do a great job of lunch break and mini play breaks to keep them interested. There were all levels and as a beginner my daughter was made to feel comfortable and had other beginners to play with. I would definitely sign her up again. She cannot wait to go back. Your child should be interested in chess to spend the whole day. They do offer a half day as well which might be more appropriate for those kids who may need to run around a bit more."

“My child came out of chess camp this afternoon asking if he could come home and "play chess for the rest of the day"! He said it was a lot of fun and asked if he could go tomorrow! (Had to break the news that tomorrow is a weekend) Highly recommend."
