Online Chess Camps

Chess Institute of Canada (CIC) has been offering various virtual chess clubs, workshops, classes, tournaments, and camps since March 2020, as part of our continuing mission to Bring Chess to Life.

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!

For older children, we also highly recommend an August sleepover camp about an hour from Toronto. National Chess Camp is held each year on the shores of Lake Couchiching.
