Research has shown that chess helps develop a child's mind in many diverse and important ways. Through our programs we have seen academic results improve, social and emotional skills develop and self esteem increased. During our programs children participate in many events including chess contests and tournaments. Watch the video to the right for some parent comments taken at one of our summer events.
Camp is fun in many different ways! Arts and crafts, sports and outdoor activities and academic fun with math games, word games and science fun are also integral parts of the Kids Chess Summer Camp. Creative expression, physical exercise and tactile learning are all part of the daily routine.
