The most awesome chess camp in the universe is back for more fun, more action and more crazy checkmates - this year we have extended one week by popular demand! 

Register early as we are expecting the camp to sell out even faster than last summer. 

An opportunity for serious learning and summer fun, campers will hone chess skills and benefit from Master class training, enjoying themselves all the while.  Camp includes daily Master Lessons, soccer and outdoor games in Central Park, and projected chess training videos and fun movies while enjoying pizza lunch.

Like our classes, our camp boasts small groups tailored for each child and skill level, taught by the best teachers in the world including our specially trained Grand Masters and Masters.

Master Summer Camp is designed for children five and up of all experience and skill levels.
