NYChessKids founder Saudin Robovic says there are various benefits in learning to play chess. “[Children] learn to think, learn to plan, learn to take time and focus. It’s a very organized way of thinking,” he says. “They can apply those skills to any area in life.”
Camp sessions are July 15-19 and Aug. 5-9, both with full-day (9am-5pm) and half-day (9am-1pm; 1-5pm) enrollment options, with the enrollment fee including water, snacks, lunch, and a camp T-shirt. The camp also offers early drop-off, late pick-up, and early registration and sibling discounts.
