We're More than Just Chess
At International Chess Academy (ICA), Scholastic Camps are designed to be both stimulating and challenging. Our classes improve strategic thinking, memory and logic, while other activities allow kids to explore creativity, imagination and more importantly provide them with the opportunity to meet other kids from all over, form friendships and have fun.
Confidence is reinforced by success in a multitude of disciplines. Children are encouraged to get out of their comfort zone by participating and competing in the chess arena at all levels. Sportsmanship and camaraderie are always practiced and highly praised by our staff. Our counselors excel in their field and are enthusiastic instructors.
