Fun & Training Events 

Chess NYC's policy of "Chess Should be Fun" truly prevails for these cool days of Fun & Training™ Camp! From Chess Leaders to Grand Master, these Camps are 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 Kids 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. 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. Light Cartoons are optional based on parents preferences and other fun activities will be available instead.

This approach successfully minimizes resistance and maximizes progress a result...everyone associates Chess with Fun!
