Online Chess Camps

Chess Institute of Canada (CIC) has been offering various virtual chess clubs, workshops, classes, tournaments, and camps since March 2020, as we continue our mission of Bringing Chess to Life™ in spite of the pandemic.

Try out our virtual camps!

Sign up for a week or more of chess every day! Virtual chess camp features a daily 60-minute or 90-minute live session, where campers meet with their instructor and friends on Zoom (as well as over an online chess platform) for fun-filled lessons, activities, and game play. It’s something to look forward to every day!
