2019 Berkeley Summer Camp now open for registration!

Berkeley Summer Chess Camp offers full or half day options for campers entering first grade in the fall, up to those who are entering 11th grade. Our morning program from 9:00-1:00 is relaxed, playful and includes casual chess, other board games and playground games. The intensive chess program is from 1:00 to 5:00 and includes instruction, supervised play and outdoor recess. Early drop off begins at 8am and late pickup extends to 5:30pm. Students bring their own snacks and lunch. This year our teacher line up will include GM Sam Shankland, BCS Alumnus Life Master Roger Poehlmann, and BCS favorites Stephen and Eric Shaughnessy.

At Nelda Mundy, Fairfield, we have camp the week of June 10 -14 – for Nelda Mundy students only.  Bill Skog will be the coach for this camp.   See below.
