Half day vacation camps

The half day camps for beginner and advanced players are chess only from 9-12 am. Children who already know the basic rules can also sign up for afternoons half-day from 1 to 4 p.m. and participate in the combined program of hip hop, soccer, martial arts, etc.(see camp flyer), and chess (though in the afternoon the emphasis is on practising chess rather than on teaching).

The costs for a half day camp is 220 CHF per week incl. training, material, snacks/drinks, Monday through Friday. Optionally the kids can join us for lunch hour between 12am and 1pm. The costs for a half day camp incl. lunch is 280 CHF.
