2024 White Plains Summer Chess Program:

Our daily program features a balance of formal chess instruction and friendly competition. All participants will receive both group and individual instruction. The program is tailored to accommodate children of different strengths within the same class so that students are challenged based on their understanding of concepts. Players move up through NSCF levels as they achieve proficiency.

We provide a nut-free snack and water for morning and afternoon sessions. Each child should bring his or her own lunch and extra snacks, if desired. All lunches and snacks must be nut-free. Supervised outdoor play during lunch period.

Refunds/Cancellation Policy

Cancellations will be accepted up until noon on the Friday PRIOR to the start of your child's camp. Refunds are subject to a $25 administrative fee.
