|“What I enjoyed the most about the camp was the new things I learned (The Euler Phi Function, The divisor function, modular arithmetic), and the new friends I made.” - 2014 camper|
Each summer, CMS Math Camps provide students with an interest in mathematics with a unique and unforgettable experience. The camps take place in universities and CEGEPs across Canada and range from day camps to week long events. Students who attend the camps leave with new friends, new ideas, and a new outlook on mathematics. CMS Math camps are a great opportunity to:
Enhance skills and knowledge
CMS camps provide an enrichment experience for students who have shown an interest in and an aptitude for mathematics. Advanced math concepts are presented in a manner that is challenging yet still accessible. Students are also coached on how to approach problems and have the opportunity to develop their group problem solving skills.
Gain a new perspective
CMS camps allow students to experience math as never before through games, projects, experiments, and other fun activities. The camps also highlight the role math plays in everyday life. In surveys taken after the camps, students consistently report an increased interest in math and science careers.
Make new friends
CMS camps are a great way to connect students with similar interests. Many campers go on to form Facebook groups, stay in touch as 'math camp alumni', and even try their hand at one of the CMS national competitions.
Please select a province or territory to view the math camps available in that region:
As part of the CMS Math Camps program, a number of camps are focused on special or unique interests of students and/or educators. The Canada Math Camp focuses on high-potential students. The Queen’s University math camp focuses on girls. The Math Camp for Black students focuses on African American students from Nova Scotia. The SFU Emerging Aboriginals Camp focuses on aboriginal communities as well as educators.
The Canada Math Camp is designed for Canadian students in grades 8 to 10 with the potential to compete at the mathematical olympiad level. Participation in the Canada Math Camp is by invitation only. The selection will be made primarily from the results of the annual Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge, as well as other contest information and recommendations from Regional Camp Directors. Please contact the organizer for more details.
