(Just about every day schools closed)
Chess NYC's policy of "Chess Should be Fun" truly prevails for these cool days of camp! From Chess Leaders to Grand Master, this Camp is sure to captivate, motivate and generate chess players. Each child will receive as much Chess time as they like while enjoying mind clearing fun, cooling and break opportunities.
Overflowing with supervision, special attention to those with greater commitment levels to chess, as well as those who need an extra boost are a few of the advantages of this (Chess) Fun! That and great play send campers home well rounded, effective chess players. Three hours of Chess activities are threaded through each full 8 hour day, led by Chess NYC's Championship Coaching Staff (Nationals Champions). But that's just the beginning of these great Fun & Training Camps! Outdoor fun, water play, sports and other activities thrill (coax where necessary) and prepare attendees for the next upcoming Chess activities.
Of course Chess is always available (and even encouraged) and young Chess enthusiasts play and much 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! At the end of a great day, they've had @ least 3 hours of Chess!...A week? 15 hours...A month? 60 hours! Prop(p)er dosage for all.
