2009 ICA Summer Camp Week 4
When we see the effort that our campers put into their studies each week, we all agree that it is a shame that everyone can’t win a prize, but we just want to say that even when they loose they are real winners, and they constantly represent all that is best in what we consider great chess players. We see great competitive drive balanced by excellent sportsmanship.

Summer Camp 2009
Why our camp as opposed to another? Simple really. We offer it all, and though chess is the primary activity, there are plenty of other ones that will keep your child from falling asleep, or worst of all, calling your work # asking to be taken home while you are swamped in the middle of an important meeting.

2008 International Chess Academy Summer Camp Review:
By now most of the children who went to this year’s camp are immersed in math, science, and literature. Their teachers are tough, and as is usually the case with each successive grade, so is the curriculum. Of course, unless most of them stared at the tip of their pencil’s eraser last year, all of this fractions-distractions mumbo jumbo should be a piece of delicious home economics baked cake.
