In-Person Camps

Bring chess to life in person during PA days, holidays, and breaks!

Build on the excellence of our virtual and in-person programs at CIC camps that bring students together to play and learn valuable life skills!
Chess is a great way to give children a head-start on STEM, math and logic through the fun of one of the world’s most loved games.
Chess is the focus, but we offer much more: healthy breaks, good meals, featured entertainers. There are no other camps quite like CIC camps — as generations of children will attest to!
