Chess NYC's policy of "Chess Should Be Fun" prevails during the cool days of Fun & Training Camp. Plenty of supervision and special attention to those with greater commitment levels to chess (as well as those who need an extra boost) are a few advantages of this camp. These features combined with great play mean that kids go home as well rounded, effective chess players.
Three hours of chess activities led by Chess NYC's championship coaching staff are threaded through each full 8-hour day, and that's just the beginning. Outdoor fun, water play, sports, and other activities thrill attendees and prepare them for the next chess activities.
Of course, chess is always available and even encouraged, and young enthusiasts play much more (some campers play at a very advanced level). The alternative—fun activities, pizza, ice cream, and more—ensures they'll all keep coming back!
