April 2021 Chess Clinic

online chess camp during spring break

Online April Camps

Our online April camps will be held using our remote portal and additional online and offline activities.  Camps are open to all students as long as they are able to play chess and do not need fundamental lessons.  We’ll do the best we can to make sure each camp is large enough for campers to have a fun social experience but still small enough that each student gets personal attention from the instructor.

Your instructor will be Ilya Krasik, National Master. He is a highly rated professional chess coach who is great with kids. 

We lowered the price by $65/day since this is not an in-person camp, however we kept the same program structure and same activities, minus breaks outside.

No discounts or promotions, the lowest price we can afford to offer, while still maintaining the high quality many of you came to expect from NECS over the years.
