Summer Chess Camps

Summer campers with Raider Red

The Texas Tech University Chess Program is thrilled to announce the dates for our inaugural Online Summer Chess Camp. 

We are offering four camp sessions throughout the summer. Each session runs for a week and meets daily from 9 am - 12 pm (CST). Campers will be assigned to one of three sections based upon their current chess skill. Once placed, participants will receive in-depth instruction via immersive and fully interactive lessons that are designed to improve their chess game while also providing a safe, fun, and social experience. Campers wanting to attend more than one session may do so, as each session will be fine-tuned based on the skill and experience of the campers in that section. These camp sessions are open to participants 7-18 years of age. Sibling discount is available. Space is limited, so please register early to secure your spot! 

To register, please click on the link, fill out the registration form, and submit.

Once we receive your application, we will reach out to you with additional information.  

Note: we will need your camper's ChessKid.com and Chess.com usernames, so if you do not yet have accounts on those sites, please start that process and email the usernames to use once you have created them. 

Don't let your children miss this very special opportunity to learn from the world's best!
