About the Chess & Fun Camp
Oakville Chess Club in partnership with Elevate My Chess is hosting a full day Chess & Fun camp for only one week in July, Monday to Friday from July 27 to July 31, 2020. The camp will be hosted at the Glen Abbey United Church in Oakville. Although the primary focus of the camp is chess for all levels of players including those that have never played chess, we will also have time for basketball in the gym, play in the park and Money management for kids.
The full day program combines both the morning and afternoon session. The morning session focuses on chess lessons and play time in the gym or at the nearby Park. Breaks will be incorporated for water, snacks and bathroom. The afternoon session will include more chess lessons, interactive money management lessons for kids and some additional play time.
The full day camp will run from 9:00am – 5:00pm. However, with an additional fee, parents may drop off the campers as early as 8:00am and pick them up as late as 6:00pm.
Who Should Attend Our Camp
Our camp is for boys and girls born between 2007 and 2015. Minimum age is 5 and maximum age is 14. The camp is ideal for all kids interested in the game of chess from those that have never played chess to advanced chess players. Our program will cover curriculum suitable for novice, beginners, intermediate and advanced level chess players. In addition to chess, our program will include money management for kids as well as play time and fun activities. See sample schedule below for details.
