Your child has attended one or more of our Chess/Strategy Camps?

They are eager to play some more, but not sure how to continue?

Here are some links and explanations, and at any moment you have any questions, please don't hesitate to Contact Us.


Summer Camps

We have camps all the way through mid-august (Strategy-Games Camps, Chess Camps, Master Chess Camps, and a higher-rated HACKERS camp).  It's not too late to book another camp!  Find them all HERE: https://enrichment.bayareachess.com/page/camps


Weekend Clubs: 

4 Club options are available on Saturdays and Sundays all summer, which are 2 or 3 hour classes that use drop-in scheduling!  We are in Los Gatos (Chess on Saturdays), Palo Alto (Strategy Games and Chess on Saturdays) and Cupertino (Chess and Pizza on Sundays).  See all of our clubs HERE: https://enrichment.bayareachess.com/clubs/register-online


Strategy Games: 

An exciting and fun new curriculum that broadens the range of what we offer for student enrichment.  We host this option in both weekly Club and Summer/Winter Camp form.    See what the fuss is about HERE:  https://enrichment.bayareachess.com/club/saturday-afternoon-strategy-club-palo-alto


Chess Teams:

Our more experienced players can join one of our 4 levels of BAC Teams that meet in Palo Alto or San Jose on scheduled Saturdays with our top-rated coaches!  More on those HERE: https://enrichment.bayareachess.com/page/teams


Your First Tournament:

We have a special monthly Tournament called "Rising Star" that is specifically designed to be the first tournament experience for unrated kids!  While the kids play, the parents also receive a quick seminar on what to expect with tournaments, ratings, the USCF and what to do next!  Its the perfect first step.  We are skipping July, so the next one is on August 4th at 10:00am at our office in San Jose. More on that HERE:  https://www.bayareachess.com/risingstar/


Rated Chess Tournaments:

We host half-day tournaments just about every weekend all over the Bay Area!  Find the schedule and info on those HERE: https://www.bayareachess.com/events/18/signature/

Club Events:

The next Special Event will take place at the end of July at the Los Gatos Chess Club (Saturdays 4-6 pm) with Grandmaster Atanas Kolev (https://enrichment.bayareachess.com/atanas).  More details on that soon!  If you want to be on the main newsletter for our weekly clubs, contact us and we'll make sure you never miss out.


Afterschool Chess:

September is coming!  If we aren't already offering chess in your child's school, we would like to be!  More on how to help us do that HERE:  https://enrichment.bayareachess.com/page/bring-chess-class-your-school
