    About Math Camps

    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


    “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.”

    New Math Camps Welcome

    If you are an organizer of a math camp or are planning to organize a math camp in the future, we can help! Here are a few ways in which we are able to support you:

    • Curriculum development help and other math camp advice: contact Dr. Joseph Khoury at;
    • Financial support: your camp may qualify for a CMS Math Camp Grant. If you would like to apply for funding, please contact for more information. 

    The CMS is always looking for initiatives to make math and math education accessible to all. If you are looking to organize a math camp for underrepresented students, we would love to hear from you and help you make it happen.

    Canada Math Camp

    The Canada Math Camp is a prestigious program offered by the Canadian Mathematical Society and is hosted by the Department of Mathematics at the University of Toronto. The Canada Math Camp is an invitation-only camp offered to students in grade 10 or below, who are top scorers on the Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge (COMC) and have potential to compete at the mathematical olympiad level.

    The camp is a week long program where students stay in residence and spend the week participating in intensive math competition preparation along with guest lectures from faculty in the Department of Mathematics.

    Please contact the organizer for more details.
