- The Thinking Different™ Live Online Chess Camp offers Live chess lessons, friendly play with teammates and special tournaments. On each weekday (Monday-Friday) we run three high-energy, entertaining and engaging, live chess lessons (at 10am, 12pm, 2pm EST) followed by a chess tournament (at 3pm EST). On the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) we run special events, tournaments and puzzle duels but no live classes. We use Zoom for the live lessons, and the advanced chesskid platform for the play portion.

- In each lesson we cover some or all 6 C's of success (Clarity, Control, Choice, Cooperation, Creativity and Courage), the foundation of the Thinking Different™ program. Kids become better chess players while learning innovative thinking strategies, adapting a new mindset for success and making a leap in every aspect of their lives.

- The camp is best suited for kids in grades 2-6 with prior knowledge of the game, from non-rated to 1600 rating.

The variety of learning tools provide brain-stimulating challenges and hours of entertainment and fun for kids.

We are here for you. For the first time, we are offering the camp on a Pay What You Want (PWYW) basis. Check the F.A.Q below for more details.

Camp F.A.Q


The Thinking Different™ curriculum uses chess to help students develop character, improve social skills and enhance their cognitive abilities in a unique way. It has already made a difference in the lives of thousdands in schools and community centeres, in educational facilities for at-risk youth, and as a certificate-program for inmates in the Canadian prison system. Simply put, while helping kids take their chess to the next level we also empower them to overcome obstacles, remove their limitations and be all they can possibly be. Yes, chess can do that.
The Thinking Different™ Live Online Chess Camp is a week of fast-paced, engaging and interactive, live chess lessons, friendly play with teammates and special tournaments. We use Zoom for keeping the high-energy live lessons fun, and the advanced chesskid.com platform for the play portion.
The camp is best suited for kids in grades 2-6 with prior knowledge of the game, from non-rated to 1600 rating (We assume that your child knows all the rules and has played chess before).
The camp is delivered by Tal Granite, Chess World Founder and the creator of the Thinking Different curriculum, or by a group leader trained and experienced with the curriculum. Tal is a World Chess Federation (FIDE) certified Chess Instructor, a former member of the Israel Chess Federation Chess Instruction Committee,  and the former CEO of the charity Chess Institute of Canada. As a globally acknowledged expert on school chess teaching Tal was honoured to be one of the regularly invited speakers of the annual Chess and Education Conference in London, England, the largest conference of its kind in the world.

Yes! Every camper will receive a free chesskid.com premium gold membership for the duration of the camp as a special bonus. Complement the live lessons with unlimited access to puzzles and puzzle duels, video lessons, chess workouts, a vision trainer, and more. The variety of learning tools, including real-time chess against computer robots or other kids, provide brain-stimulating challenges and hours of entertainment and fun for kids.

The chesskid platform is a safe place for kids to enjoy chess. Privacy management tools, friendly in-game emotes, and a controlled playing environment ensure that kids learn in a wholesome, friendly and bully-free environment. Kids can play other kids, but their interaction with adults is strictly limited to their immediate parent or club administrators. Peace of mind for you, fun for kids! 
We run three 1-hour sessions (at 10:00am, 12pm and 2pm EST) along with a special tournament at 3pm every camp weekday (Monday-Friday). The live sessions are divided into a high-energy, entertaining and engaging lesson portion over Zoom, and a play portion in a designated room for our campers only, on the chesskid.com server. On the weekend (on both Saturday and Sunday) we run special events and tournaments, but no live lessons. Our group room on chesskid.com will remain open at all times, and campers are invited to continue to practice and play as they desire.

Here is a sample daily schedule (All times are Eartern Standard Time):
