More Times Coming Soon

We will add more school break camps in the fall! If you are looking for summer camps, you can find those here!

Our online chess mini-camps are a fun way to spend a day without school!  Camps have a mixture of live lessons, practice games, and puzzles.  Campers are divided by skill so that everyone gets useful lessons and fair games.  A few more things to know:

  • Ages 5-14
  • No equipment required - lessons are online over Chessable Classroom
  • All skill levels welcome!
  • Maximum of 8 students per group, and each group has its own instructor.  Groups range from learning the rules to strong tournament players.

Typical schedule for the day:

  • 9:30-9:40 Introductions, chat, get to know each other
  • 9:40-10:10 Lesson
  • 10:10-10:45 Practice games and possibly student game analysis
  • 10:45-11:00 Break
  • 11:00-11:25 Lesson
  • 11:25-12:00 Practice games



How are students grouped?

We group students by skill as best we can.  For students who've done prior online chess activities with us, we'll use their ratings, and make groups that are as close together in skill as possible.

What equipment do we need?  Do we need a chess board?

Just a laptop or tablet that can open Once you sign in to Chessable, you'll need to allow the site to use your audio and video, just like with zoom. Do not use the Chessable app. 

Who's teaching the camp?

We have a bunch of teachers at each camp, but you can see some of our team here.
