Help children develop at chess

The best way for children to improve at chess is to immerse themselves completely in play, instruction and fun. We offer short online chess camps for children designed to give them extra confidence in not only their chess decision making but also in their lives. Children also enjoy the experience of playing and making friends with children from other countries.

Each two-day camp comprises three sessions per day with illustrated lectures and exercises. The children will learn through structured problem-solving and through playing with each other in structured pairings. Participants will be advised regarding the best way to play and learn chess online.
