The CMS has been sponsering Math Camps since 1998.
The program has expanded from one camp in 1998 to 13 in 2002.
These 13 include a National Camp, and the two new camps
(that is, camps at Universities that had not held a prior camp).
The two new camps are at the University of Manitoba and UPEI.
Assessment of Effectiveness:
Reports by camp organizers are available from the CMS office. The two new camps appear to be as succesful as the the other camps have been.
Future Plans (if any):
As the ex chair of the Math Competitions Committee, the committee that initiated the camps, I will say that the intent has always been that the camps will be a continuing project of the CMS.
By showing what a succesful program the camps are, we hope to be
able to find more sponsers.
Manitoba Camp: The organizers have included a detailed statement of Revenue and expense in their report. The Camp cost was over $8000, the Endowment fund covered 3750 of the cost.
We do not yet have as detailed a report for the UPEI camp. The Endowment fund contributed $1000, and their expected budget was $2700. The expected budget is in line with other camps of about the same size.
Any surplus money will be carried forward to the next camp. The grant was for $5000. The remaining $250 was used for Tee-shirts for the 40 students at the two new camps. (The CMS office organizes and pays for the the Tee shirts )
