Description: 
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.
