Chess Camps Keep California Kids Busy

A children’s chess camp run by the Torres Chess and Music Academy is the ideal way for chess players to improve during school breaks. Children are separated into groups based on rating and age so that each class represents the closest chess experience grouping possible.  All Torres Chess and Music Academy camps have a group of outstanding master chess teachers on hand to review the child’s game as soon as he/she finishes it. At the Torres Chess and Music Academy, a loss is never just a loss. Instead a loss is a unique opportunity to grow as a chess player under the supervision of the very best chess coaches.

Plenty of children left with trophies while even more left with consolation prize medals. All children who attended our chess camps left with a better understanding of chess than they arrived with.
