What Happens @ Chess NYC Summer Camps!

So let's take a moment and explain a day of Chess NYC Fun & Training Camp for you. While 3 hours of Chess activities are threaded through each full 8 hour day for every Camper, led byChess NYC's Championship Coaching Staff, (Nationals Champions)that's just the beginning of these great Fun & Training Camps! Outdoor fun, water play and other activities thrill (coax where necessary) and prepare attendees for the next upcoming Chess activities. The Uptown Camp boasts a dunk tank! Village Chess @ Zinc Camp a live treated Washington Square Park fountain! PS 3, sports an incredible enclosed playground and water splashing to spare!! Greenpoint Brooklyn, our newest location, enjoys magnificent Parks nearby, with greenery to spare!! The Hampton's? Well, they're the Hampton's!

While Chess is always available (and of course encouraged) and our extreme young, Chess enthusiasts play and learn even more (some of our kids are very, very advanced) the alternative, FUN activities, Pizza and Ice Cream etc. ensures they'll ALL keep coming back! From absolute beginners to advanced players,Chess NYC's philosophy is to engage each child on their individual level and appetite to play. This approach successfully minimizes resistance and maximizes progress and...as a result...everyone associates Chess with Fun! @ the end of a great day they've had @ least 3 hours of Chess!...a week 15 hours...A month 60 hours! Our talented, excited and eager team is ready to share the love of the game every moment possible and they love doing so!


We'll say it again, for us, "it's more than a game, it's out culture!"

2015 Chess NYC Summer Camp Guide

What Parents Are Saying!

What Parents Are Saying!

"Our child did a one week camp session and he went from having only a basic knowledge of the pieces to playing competitively with family members. I see his self confidence growing in his own intelligence with his increased mastery of chess. He loved every day at camp and is asking to go back. The most dramatic result is that our child is asking to play a game of chess instead of the usual video games! We are very appreciative."

Village Chess @ Zinc 82 West 3rd St

Full Week, Multiple Week, Single Day & 1/2 Day

 

This truly amazing "Boutique Camp" is only open to the first 28 Applicants and frequently sells out. Teaming with Experts, Masters. International Masters & even GM's "Chess Mornings" are spent in Chess NYC's, now famous Club, Village Chess @ Zinc!

A Live Jazz Club @ Night and Live Chess Club by day, this, "Only in NYC" site is about as cool as it gets! Lunch takes place either in a local restaurant or a picnic in Washington Square Park! After some activities in the Park, the Group returns to the Club for another Power Chess session until about 3:30 pm....Then it's back to the Park for outdoor play, Ice Cream...even (permitted) Water Fountain Cooling off! 

The final 20 minutes or so of the day are spent back @ the air conditioned Club, "chillin" for pick up. Because the Club is our home, p/u is less stringent and late pick ups are no big deal. What the heck? They'll play some more Chess and relax where the Chess culture resides :)
