The UT Dallas Chess Program spreads enthusiasm for the game year-round.

Summer chess camps engage children in intellectual pursuit while building social skills. Many campers return year after year to build their skills and see friends.

Registration begins each winter for the following summer’s camps. Check back often to receive discounts and ensure their spot at the chess boards.

Ages and Classes

Classes are for kids 7-14.

Classes are small with a low student-to-teacher ratio. Kids are grouped by ability, age, experience and instructor assessment. UT Dallas Chess Camp will attempt to group friends and relatives upon request.

Choose the session that fits your child’s schedule: Morning sessions run from 9 a.m. – noon and afternoon sessions run from 1 – 4 p.m.

Camp groups include:

  • Beginners, who master the basic rules and fundamentals of chess
  • Intermediate players, who build on basic chess knowledge with key strategies and ideas
  • Advanced players, who sharpen their competitive edge with advanced strategies for tournament play
