The SPICE Chess Summer Camp is a fun way to introduce chess to newcomers of the game as well as deepen the understanding of the game for intermediate or advanced players.

All instructors are members of the SPICE team (including GMs) and will teach based on Susan Polgar’s world-class curriculum.

In addition to teaching chess, we engage in a variety of recreational activities during the camp. Supervised breaks might include indoor soccer, basketball or swimming.
