Come join other scholastic players at the Solomon Schechter Upper School for a summer chess experience you won’t forget. Located in central Hartsdale, our daily program features a balance of formal chess instruction and friendly competition. All participants receive both group and individual instruction.

The NSCF summer camp staff features full-time chess professionals, led by National Master Ricardo Perez Billinghurst, who all share an enthusiasm for working with children. Every teacher is an active tournament player as well as a provider of classroom instruction. It is this flexibility that enables our staff to reach each and every player! A daily hot lunch and afternoon snack are included in the full-day camp fee. There is a half-day option available ending or starting at noon. *Lunch is not included in the half-day camp fee. This year, camp is being offered for 4 week-long sessions only beginning July 29.

Each week a different Guest Instructor plus…

This year, for intermediate and advanced students, we will study select lessons from the 2019 edition of Sunil’s book:

“Best Lessons of a Chess Coach” (to be published this year)!
