Camp Information

Magnus Chess Academy chess camps are made for everyone! We've taught more than 100,000 kids of all skill levels, from beginners learning the rules up to state and national champions.

Campers are broken up in groups by skill level for lessons that range from the basic rules to master games, openings, endgames, and tactics. Students will build upon their skills by playing practice games against other students. At the end of the week, each camper will receive a t-shirt and their very own chess set!

Students will take breaks for fresh air throughout the day. All equipment is provided.
