MASTER SUMMER CAMP

With Light Buggiani and Special Guest Bruce Pandolfini

 

We are back for another super fun camp!  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, Master Lessons and projected chess videos while enjoying pizza lunch.

For an added thrill, we will also hold chess tournaments with prizes!

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

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