Magnus Chess (formerly known as Silver Knights) Enrichment Camps

Magnus Academy began as Silver Knights when a pair of brothers who grew up loving chess wanted to share their enthusiasm with kids. After ten years teaching chess at hundreds of schools to 100,000+ kids, we partnered with Magnus Carlsen, the world chess champion, to grow the game!

In Chess Camp, campers play and learn chess with Magnus Academy (formerly Silver Knights)! We’ve taught 100,000 children including national champions, but most students are beginners looking to learn and have fun! Campers are broken up in groups by skill level. Activities include learning the rules, openings, tactics, endgames, studying master games, and playing lots of games against other students. Campers will take breaks for snacks, lunch, and fresh air. At the end of the week, campers receive a t-shirt and chess set. All equipment provided.
