ImagesMaster Camps


Master Chess camps are for the advanced USCF rated scholastic chess players. Minimum rating of USCF 800 is required to attend.  Master chess camps are taught by professional titled instructors ( Grand Masters, International Masters, FIDE Masters), and provide more complex materials than regular chess camps.

Master Chess Camp differs from the regular chess camp in a way how the material is introduced so as by the amount and complexity of the introduced material.
Master Chess Camp includes daily lecture-style lessons, which may require longer concentration and sitting, so as engaged listening, rather than relaxed learning; there will be a number of practice games, tactical and positional chess puzzle exercises throughout the day as well. Daily lectures, exercises and practice games will be alternated with the recesses.

The schedule of instruction is flexible and can depend on coaches' discretion -- calculation training, opening preparation, middle-games, endgames, etc. are all potential topics. The coaches will provide top-level instruction, aiming to challenge the students in an engaging way.

Late Pick-up Policy

In the past we had a few parents who picked up their child late at the end of the camp. 
Per our policy, we can not just leave the children at the camp sites by themselves. Coaches need to supervise them at all times. The late pick up has really caused an inconvenience to the teachers last year. 
Everyone who gets picked up 10 minutes after the camp is over (or, if paid for, the late pick-up time is over), will be charged $1 for each minute.
We hope that this policy will not have to be enforced, so please, make your and our life easier by being on time.

Any questions that you can't find the answers? Contacts us here and we'll get back to you!

Please note: There is absolutely NO NUTS and NO FOOD Sharing Policy in all BAC Camps and Programs.
