How Camps are Structured:

  • Every scheduled camp day will be a mix of engaging instruction and tournament play.

  • All chess camps will have at least some traditional chess events, and all camps will offer at least one variation of chess (usually crazyhouse and atomic chess).   

Requirements: 

  • Each student will need their own device and a good internet connection.  Each student will need a free account at www.lichess.org.   We also recommend each device have a camera but this is not a requirement.
     

  • After you have registered for the camp, please create a free account for each camper at www.lichess.org  and enter the player name into the relevant parent portal participant fields  (0r email username to raygarrison@arborchess.com)

  • VIrtual Class/Camp Cancellation policy:  Sorry, no refunds.  Credits are possible, please inquire.

  • Virtual Camp Transfers:  If you need to transfer camp weeks, please inquire.  There is a transfer cost of $19 for a camp week transfer ( increases to $29 if transferring a camp that starts in one month or less.  $39 one week or less)

Sorry, no In Person Camps:

      We have made the decision to continue 100% virtual.
