Chess Camp Overview

TCR and Ciano chess have come together to bring New York the best chess camp in the US. The facilities at TCR are state of the art including, Jr Olympic Pool, several indoor basketball courts, 6 new indoor tennis courts, a brand new indoor golf facility, a full spa, gym, restaurant, and a courteous staff. Ciano chess is new to the big apple as of 2010, but in the last year we won the SUPER NATIONALS 1st grade team, and had 4 individuals go to super nationals, and bring home 4 trophies.

This summer SUPER GM Alex Stripunsky will teach your children GM Stripunsky has gained great respect and recognition as America’s Elite Grandmaster and is known as the Premier Chess Coach in the US as well. In fact, GM Stripunsky has been the coach to many of the top young chess players in the country including NM Joshua Colas, the 2010 7th grade National Champion, FM Parker Zhao, FM Teddy Coleman, and IM Jake Kleiman of Memphis. GM Stripunsky is disciplined when it comes to chess as he runs regularly and works out equally as hard on the chess board. Appreciating the aesthetic strength in chess, GM Stripunsky has said, “The more you play, the more beauty you are able to see.”

Some highlights in GM Stripunsky’s career include: US Championship, First Place tie, 2005, Invitation to play in the World Championship, Coach of US Women’s Olympian Team, Continental Open Champion 2008, National Congress Champion, 1st Place, and Philadelphia Open 2010, 1st Place tie.


At TCR, we take great care with the all-important job of transporting our kids to and from home. We utilize our own vehicles and our own year round staff drivers. We pick up and drop off door to door. All students must wear seat belts and will be dropped off in front of the home, on the home side of the street, and the driver will not leave until the doorman or a member of the residence receives the child. Pickups will range from 8am – 9am and drop offs from 5pm – 5:30pm depending on home location.

Lunch & Snacks

Campers will benefit from a complimentary buffet lunch this camp season.

Campers may purchase snacks and drinks when time permits throughout the day as well as lunch alternates as desired.
