Smart Brains Chess Summer Camp at Ramamurthy Nagar

CHESS SUMMER CAMP at Ramamurthy Nagar Coaching Center (detailed address in attachment)

Start Date: Monday 30th March 2015. End Date: Friday 22nd May 2015.
 (But one can choose to start on any Monday between the start & end dates as given above)

Total Duration: 8 weeks (‘5 days a week’ session). Monday to Friday: Daily 2 Hours. 

Batch 1 from 11.30 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. & Batch 2 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

Weekly Fees Structure for flexibility as mentioned below: (This flexibility is good for people who cannot attend all 8 weeks of the Chess Coaching Camp). 

Rs.500/- off for all existing students of SBCA for all/any options below*

a) All 8 weeks = Rs.4000/- (Total 80 Hours of coaching)

b) Any 7 weeks = Rs.3750/- (Total 70 Hours of coaching) 

c) Any 6 weeks = Rs.3500/- (Total 60 Hours of coaching) 

d) Any 5 weeks = Rs.3250/- (Total 50 Hours of coaching) 

e) Any 4 weeks = Rs.3000/- (Total 40 Hours of coaching) 

f) Any 3 weeks = Rs.2500/- (Total 30 Hours of coaching) 

g) Any 2 weeks = Rs.2000/- (Total 20 Hours of coaching) 

h) Any 1 week = Rs.1500/- (Total 10 Hours of coaching)

Let’s say, one chooses any 5 weeks of coaching. So, for example, one skips the very first week and joins from the 2nd week and attends for 2 weeks and then takes a break for the next two weeks and again attends the last 3 weeks. This flexi-fees structure works great for those who are going on a vacation in-between. 

The above mentioned fees is inclusive of a one-time non-refundable enrollment fees of Rs.500/-. 

*Students already enrolled at SBCA will get Rs.500/- off on the above mentioned fees. 

Note: International Standard Staunton Chess Set is mandatory for all students. We can provide the same at an additional cost of Rs.400/- per set + The Chess Workbook at Rs.300/-.
