IN GLEN ROCK, NJ & TEANECK, NJ
STARTS ON JUNE 20!
2022 SCHOLASTIC SUMMER CHESS CAMP
ON-SITE- Teaneck & Glen Rock
The 22nd Annual International Chess Academy Scholastic Summer Day Camp is Back for 10 weeks, from June 20 to August 26.
Our New Jersey camps, located in Teaneck and Glen Rock, offer a structured opportunity for children ages 6-16 to grow intellectually and let their creativity and imagination flourish. With a 6:1 ratio of campers to counselors, children get enough attention to develop independence and build self-confidence within a fun and safe environment. Take advantage of the opportunity to give your child the thrill of working with internationally known chess coaches like WGM Irina Levitina!
Morning chess lessons are arranged by different levels based on skill. Our sessions focus on strategy, tactics and end-game training. Afternoon chess tournaments allow campers to put into practice what they have learned during lessons.
ICA offers more than just chess instruction that is structured to improve strategic thinking, memory and logic. We pride ourselves in giving campers the opportunity to explore interests such as Art, Music, Math, and Athletics (our summer dodgeball and soccer tournaments are legendary), while building friendships that last well past summer. Our counselors excel in their respective fields and strive to fuel creativity, socialization and fun.
At ICA camps, confidence is reinforced by success at every level and in a multitude of disciplines. Our campers are encouraged to get out of their comfort zone by competing in the chess arena where sportsmanship and camaraderie are reinforced and rewarded.
It's time to secure your child’s spot!
