Bard Math Circle CAMP

Entering its 8th summer in 2021, the Creative and Analytical Math Program (CAMP) is a non-residential academic math program for students moving up to grades 6–9 in the fall, who want to explore challenging math in a relaxed setting.

CAMP is an inspiring mathematical enrichment opportunity. Engaging classes and activities are led by experienced educators and undergraduate math majors. We emphasize hands-on math, teamwork, outside-the-box thinking and creative problem-solving.

CAMP has been recognized by the American Mathematical Society with an Epsilon Award. CAMP was also supported by the Mathematical Association of America with Dolciani Math Enrichment Grants for the first 3 summers.

The Girls’ Math Club is a mathematical enrichment opportunity at Bard College for Middle School girls who want to explore math using out-of-the-box thinking and creative problem solving through hands-on projects, puzzles and games, and open-ended math problems. Our goal is to foster a community of girls who love math and give them an opportunity to interact with female math students and math educators in a mentoring setting. This club is ideal for girls who are enthusiastic about engaging in math-related activities outside of school and meeting like-minded peers.
