Last year Elite Chess held a multitude of summer camps in Naperville and had over 170 students attend!  In 2017, we are hoping to reach even more kids.  All camps include 10 hours of class/instruction and are $125.  Each year Jeff DiOrio creates entirely new curriculum for summer camp, so even if the name is the same as last year, the camp will have completely different lessons.  All camps cover unique, specific, chess strategies so students will benefit from taking multiple camps. We hope you can join us in 2017 for another summer of fun and learning! 


Beginner Chess Camp - 2017
Want to give your son or daughter a leg up in school and in life? Then give them the game of chess. This camp is for kids who want to start playing the great game of chess, but presently do not know the rules. They will learn the pieces, set up, and rules of the game. Students will be able to play an entire game of chess after day 4.
 
Beginner Camp 1 - Dates: 6/5 - 6/16 (weekdays only) - (9am - 10am) 
Held at Kennedy Junior High (Taught by Jeff DiOrio and Zack Coffman)


Intermediate Chess Camps - 2017
These camps are intended for students who already know how to play the game of chess and want to improve their skills. The camps focus on fundamental strategies that will lead to better understanding of the game of chess and more victories. The culmination of each camp is an exciting chess tournament where trophies will be awarded the top 3 finishers.

Advanced Chess Camps - 2017
These camps are intended for chess students who are looking to improve their tournament results. Camps focus on the intricacies of chess strategy and how to turn these ideas into victories. A USCF playing strength of 900+, or completion of an Intermediate Camp, is a good benchmark for the advanced level. The culmination of each camp is an exciting chess tournament where trophies are awarded to the top three finishers.
