Staying in Touch

Email is a great way to get in touch with us! You can also reach Mathcamp by phone or text at (888) 371-4159. (Note that by texting us, you are giving us permission to text you back.) During the program, the office phone is staffed 9am–midnight, local time.

When the program is not in session, the office phone goes to voicemail (and then we'll call you back). You will get a much faster response by email. Use the form here to send us email!

Communicating with Campers

Please do not use the Mathcamp office phone to leave messages for individual students, except in an emergency. Instead, here are ways to contact your camper:

By email: Students will have daily access to a computer lab at Puget Sound, where they will be able to check their email. Students who bring their own laptops will also be able to log onto the UPS wireless network on campus.

By phone: Campers are permitted to bring cell phones and encouraged to use them to keep in touch with their families during camp. For those not bringing personal cell phones, we will have "call-your-parents" phones available to borrow for up to an hour at a time from the camp office.

By mail: Campers love receiving letters and care packages! Please direct mail to:

Name of Individual
c/o Mathcamp
University of Puget Sound
Conference Services
1500 N. Warner Street, CMB 1093
Tacoma, Washington 98416-1093

To make sure that your mail reaches its indended recipient, please do not send mail to students after July 25 from outside the US, and July 29 from within the US.

A NOTE TO PARENTS: We often get calls from parents who are concerned that their child has not called or emailed home in a while. Invariably, the student is simply very absorbed in camp activities – there is always a lot going on at Mathcamp. Our staff members do issue periodic reminders for all campers to call home, but it is up to you to impress upon your child the importance of keeping in touch. Be sure to talk to them before they leave and to agree in advance on the best times and frequency for contacting you.
