Since Mathcamp 2020 is virtual, it will be easier to stay in touch with your student this year!
To learn about communication in a typical year at camp, read on.
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 Champlain and several computers in Valcour, McDonald, and Whiting, where they will be able to check their email. Students who bring their own laptops will also be able to log onto the Champlain 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! Stay tuned for this year's mailing address. To make sure that your mail reaaches its indended recipient, please do not send mail to students after July 30 from outside the US, and August 3 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.
