SUMMER CAMP 2020
As many of you know, CHESSART is a family business, and this year more than ever we'll keep it that way. Capriola Ranch is the ideal location, Davie, FL, for practicing social distancing while enjoying the great outdoors and beautiful classrooms they have to offer.
Due to COVID19, the Chessart Summer-Camp Company has adapted with a new program where kids can learn, have fun, and most importantly BE SAFE! We will be following all COVID-19 protocols and suggestions by the American Camp Association (ACA) and other experts in the hygiene and sanitation fields. Please Read this info before Register.
Campers will be separated into small groups and cycle through different activities (chess, art, ceramics and sports) with their respective coaches. Each activity will take place in its own separate and sanitized classroom. Each group will learn, play and have lunch together, and will not interact with campers in other groups. Classrooms will be sanitized in between activities. Most of the activities will be held outside next to some amazing nature!

Learn how to make your own cartoon character! Technique and Imagination goes hand to hand on this exciting class, because all artists are storytelling! Student will learn how to draw different characters from geometric shapes and how we can tell a story without words, just by drawing it! Kids will study famous characters, and will be challenge to create their own character and their own comic book.
Ceramics & Sculpture
Learn how to create with clay! Students will work on pinch pots, slabs buildings, press molds, 2D compositions, carving and more. Every project takes two classes one we make it and second-class kids paint with acrylic and glazes.
The most famous game through which we help improve your child’s self confidence, imagination, concentration, intuition, logical and critical thinking, and reasoning skills. The program consists of strategy books that correspond to 8 different levels. We will be going through these chess books together with the students, and then applying these techniques in the real game. Activities include wall board play and giant chess boards where the kids get to become the knight, queen or king! Students will be grouped into different skill levels, (beginners, intermediate, advanced)
ALL ABOUT PONIES
Campers will learn all about horses! Through riding, taking care, and playing with ponies, children will make connections with these beautiful animals. They will learn how to approach and interact with them. Campers will have to chance to bathe and even paint our beautiful ponies! Activities will include obstacle courses, painting, feeding, grooming, and more!
Campers are required to wear face masks at camp! You can purchase our $8 masks or bring your own. NO MASK NO CAMP!
