Summer Chess Program at Garden School is back!

Location: Garden School; 33-16 79th Street; Jackson Heights, NY 11372

Our chess camp uses an interactive and hands-on approach for kids to learn chess. Chess camp activities include chess instruction and lessons, a Chess Lab which includes worksheets, problem solving, and more tactics. Kids will also participate in class Tournament games with notation and clocks making this an exciting and rewarding experience.

Chess helps young people learn to concentrate, think logically, overcome obstacles, spot patterns and categorize information. It helps develop problem-solving skills, planning, patience, focus of thought and self-discipline. Chess is a competitive activity, but, good sportsmanship and fair play are taught as essential elements of the game.
