Thanks for hosting a great week of summer camp. Coco seriously had the best time! She is obsessed with Birchguard Quest and I’d love for her to take one of your classes in the fall.  I'd also be interested to send her back in August for another camp!

My son absolutely loved camp at Chess at Three. He loved the small group learning and creative thinking/story-based play. The club director and the team of tutors were incredible and we had such a great experience. Will definitely do it again next summer and will be doing sessions during the year as well!

Happy Parent

We are amazed at how quickly our kindergartener became obsessed with chess thanks to attending Story Time Chess club.  He played my brother-in-law who was impressed with the skill, confidence and knowledge of the game our kiddo had amassed after only a handful of classes.

My son started coming to the club for Chess, but has become completely obsessed with Birchguard Quest! All he talks about is his character he made and the stories he and his new friends have been making in class. I wont say he was ever shy, but he has come out of his shell around new classmates in a way I never would have thought possible. A fantastic class to give kids a team experience off screen.
