Combo Camps

Combo camps are the perfect way to beat the heat and engage in academic activities. The North Texas Chess Academy has paired with ‘Bricks 4 Kidz’ and ‘Art on the Go’ for a full day camps this Summer. From July 10-14 we will offer 3 hours of chess camps in the morning where the children will learn strategies and play many practice games, and in the afternoon 3 hours of Bricks 4 Kidz camp where the children will use Legos to build, play, and LEARN!
