The Chess NYC Way

Emphasizing sport and fun and providing as much chess instruction as a child can bear...but careful not to overload...enjoying supervised, spirited play, each student associates Chess with fun, and therefore larger numbers of them ultimately excel or at least become proficient in the great, significant, game of chess.

Final Week | G & T Saturday Quads

Every Saturday players will be paired in quads of 4, starting with the 4 highest registered players based on their last month published rating and continuing down to a minimum rating of 1000 USCF. Once your quad's rounds of games are complete, the next round will begin. Player may exit upon the completion of your quad matches.

That and great play send Campers home well rounded, effective Chess Players. While 3 hours of Chess activities are threaded through each full 8 hour day for every Camper, led by Chess NYC's Championship Coaching Staff (Nationals Champions) 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.
