About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Friday, August 5, 2022.

Chess Wizards are offering this summer vacation camp for children! As much as we love chess and champion its cognitive and character benefits, we don't believe in asking a child to stay inside for 3 hours and just play chess on their vacations. We've developed an interactive day-camp format which 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 team and individual physical games 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 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 will carry with them throughout the upcoming school year and beyond.


Students will participate in fun variation games, tournaments, lessons and special matches, all while improving their creative problem solving skills and analytical skills! These sessions are not hyper-competitive and the emphasis is always on the enjoyment and love of the game.
