Testimonials from Students

The campers themselves more accurately show the experience of Mathcamp than we ever could by telling you about it! Here's a tiny sample of camper quotes from over the years.

 Don't hesitate – just go. Mathcamp will become the standard of happiness you compare the rest of your life to.

 VMC was by far the brightest five weeks I've had during the pandemic. The teaching was top-notch, the schedule flexible and accommodating, and the culture vibrant and accepting. Looking back, I could never have imagined just how emphatically we bridged the physical distance between us to build a weird and wonderful world!

 There had been many things in math that felt like unexplainable magic to me before Mathcamp. After Mathcamp they still seem like magic, but of a different kind of magic – the one you understand and can use to your advantage.

 Nowhere else is it possible to find such a large community of people who are beautiful in every respect. The campers are among the most enthusiastic, dedicated, and inclusive people one could hope for. And yet, the aspect of Mathcamp that sets it apart from every other program is the staff. The mentors are an incredible set of individuals who are endlessly helpful. Never before have I been as amazed by the quality of teaching and the engaging atmosphere created by literally every single mentor. I’m leaving Mathcamp more inspired than I’ve been in a long time.

 I divide my life into two parts; before I came to Mathcamp and after I came to Mathcamp.

 It's generally bad to assume things about people, but at Mathcamp you can assume that everyone is awesome. Mathcampers are continuous reminders of how ridiculously funny and thoughtful and exciting people can be. I've met some of my closest friends here, and they're people that I want to continue interacting with for the rest of my life. I can't imagine life without Mathcamp now.

 Each year, I grow more in five weeks of Mathcamp than in 47 weeks away. I am a much better mathematician and a much better person for it. 
Aaron A., '11, '12, '13, '14
 I learned more useful and accurate information here than anywhere else about math, the world, and myself. 
Ned P., '06, '07
 What can I say that could possibly express the wonder of Mathcamp – the joy that exists here, that permeates all who take part in it, that stays with them afterwards? 
Anna B., '03, '06, '07
 At the risk of being overly sentimental, Mathcamp is where I found myself. At the end of each summer, I think that it can't get any better. Then I return the next summer and the experience only intensifies. The campers and staff all emanate a love for mathematics – something I've found rare in other similar academic programs. The variety of classes is incredible – as is the depth. I firmly believe that Mathcamp is the best way to spend 5 weeks of summer.
