Non-members who have never been members before will need to pay to join the club for one year in which case the camp fee is waived for up to two children. (Parents with more than one child in the camp can get a discount—only $55 per child.) Please make checks payable to the Boylston Chess Foundation and please pay at site. We always have plenty of room for more students and will bring in extra teachers if needed. No reservation is required. Just show up the morning of the first day, before or around 9:00 a.m.!
