We plan our day with individual chess training and kids challenging each other on the ladder (trying to reach as high as possible in their category). After a lecture on two middle game themes a day the kids begin their work sheets (on the 16 middle game themes at three different levels). We break for sports in Central Park and the younger kids are trained to throw a ball across the volleyball net. Counselors and kids against coaches! Basketball and Soccer individualized training begins and a child is allowed to choose their sport once we are on the reserved field.

Frisbee and free play before the big soccer game where all coaches, counselors and kids play. A baseball game is started and continues each week. When we return everyone including the coaches, and counselors are playing a serious tournament game and each game is recorded and played with a clock and analyzed by our coaches on staff. Bug house and team chess are played and strategy games like Risk take over. A big trophy is awarded to each child according to the effort put into Chess and Sports.

Please send in your child’s lunch each day – we serve juices, water, lemonade, fruits and snacks each day.

Your child should bring a rain jacket with a back pack and their baseball mitt. Also bring a clock and scorebook if you have one. All items should be labeled.
