Mathcamp: Diversity at Camp

Diversity at Mathcamp

We are deeply committed to creating an intentionally diverse community and building an inclusive, equitable environment at camp. Students come to our program from all walks of life, and everyone who loves math and is welcoming to others is welcome at Mathcamp!

Our students are from all over the world, and bring diversity on every axis: race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, neurodiversity, and more. We value the perspective of each member of our community, and the staff are careful to ensure that campers have access to all the resources that they need to succeed at camp. In every stage of the design of the program, from registration through assigning residential advisors, selecting roommates, printing lists of names, creating our schedule, and planning summer activities, we are keeping in mind the needs of our diverse population. If you have any questions about life at camp, take a look at the FAQ, and don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your particular situation.

During the summer, students find both peers and mentors whose experiences are similar to their own, and also build mixed friend groups and get to know campers from all sorts of different backgrounds (and from all over the world). As one student described the experience:

 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.
