The town: The college is situated atop a hill in a residential neighborhood in the south end of Burlington. Within a mile of campus is the heart of downtown, where students can walk to amenities (grocery stores, pharmacies, etc) and fun things (bookstores, cafes, movie theaters, etc). There are also beautiful walking paths along the waterfront. Read what the Champlain College has to say about Burlington, VT.
Going off campus: Students at Mathcamp are welcome to explore the nearby town. You can pick up extra pens or snacks at the campus bookstore, but campers often enjoy outings to nearby grocers, bookstores, and ice cream shops! Keeping track of our students' whereabouts is very important to us, and students must check out before leaving campus. Learn more about student safety.
Field Trips: There are great opportunities for field trips in the area on weekends at Mathcamp! Field trips are entirely optional, but open to all students. The cost of field trips is included in the camp fee. We encourage parents to complete permission forms, which are required for students to have the option to participate in some field trips.
