The one-week Knight School Summer Chess Camps, conveniently scattered throughout the summer, are the perfect way to spend a thrilling week with other cool, smart kids who love to battle and compete! Activities change constantly in a dizzying flurry of fun that kids find compelling and thrilling. Chess Camp has a fun and friendly spirit and is a great way to keep the brain sharp during the summer while having a real blast! Chess Camp is a super-fun, high-energy chess experience in which kids ages 5-12 celebrate a new chess tactic each day with silly videos, music-driven puzzlers for prizes, colorful silicone Tactixbands, funny movies, and chess clock tourneys in which the winner gets the loser's Mardi-Gras beads! Laughter, fast-clocks, and compelling teaching approaches make this camp the summer's highlight for the current hundreds of kids who make up the awesome network of The Knight School's 75 school chess teams.


Chess Camp goes either 9 a.m. -12 p.m. or 1-4 p.m. Monday through Friday, with a snack half-way through the three-hour session. Our curriculum is awesomely effective and the campers get devastatingly good at chess. Just click here to sign up today. Chess Camps cap at 32 students in the chess party.

We are excited to offer a special Little Geniuses Summer Camp! Every preschooler gets their own dedicated big-kid, State Championship team "Chess Minion" who makes friends and teaches their very own Little Genius every day; we rotate through all the counselors, and our activities change constantly in a high-energy frenzy of chess excitement. We're in a little preschool chess tizzy the whole time. These camps are magical for the preschoolers and rising kindergartners, and these Little Geniuses report at noon carpool pickup that they are seriously ready for a nap!



Older kids who are great with younger kids may reply to this email to apply to be a junior counselor 9-12 am with these kids and to get the rare orange tye-die shirt! Being a junior counselor requires registration in the 1-4 camp that follows the Little Geniuses 9-12 camp, and there is no additional cost to be a junior counselor, but selection requires a track record of being responsible and great with younger kids. Junior Counselors bring a sack lunch all five days and drop-off is 9 am and pick-up is 4 pm.
