A gathering of children captivated by math

Ages 7–11


Epsilon Camp is a residential camp serving promising young mathematicians and their families through an intensive student program and parent workshop. This program is for children who are passionate about math as well as very competent.

Our mission is to meet the learning needs of children 7 to not yet 12 years of age with extreme intelligence and a love of mathematics by identifying and exposing them to suitable content, pedagogy, peers, and mathematicians.

Epsilon Camp 2016 will be held at Washington University in St. Louis, MO, July 24 to August 7, 2016.

At camp, my child’s fervor for math was shared, fed, and appreciated.

Epsilon Camp is looking for clear and convincing evidence of personal maturity, excitement in learning mathematics, mathematical background knowledge, and adequate motor skills that together provide a good fit for a challenging, very advanced intensive summer learning experience. The eligibility criteria ensure all campers thrive together, enjoying a learning experience unlike any other.



Our camp is about creating a community that lasts far beyond two weeks at a summer camp. Epsilon Camp leadership, faculty and staff are all dedicated to creating an environment where campers not only learn to think and work like mathematicians, but also where campers and their families build lasting friendships.

Nurture a Child's Opportunities in Math

Picture a young child whose mind is brought to life by math. In a typical school atmosphere where sports, pop culture and social concerns prevail, a young math enthusiast can feel alone and misunderstood. Now picture that same child surrounded by other young mathematicians and professors who share a love of logic, numbers, and abstraction. They are learning and playing together in their shared language of mathematics. 

At Epsilon Camp, many such students discover a community of like-minded peers. They get one another’s jokes and play games with kids who think as intensely as they do. These are children who will fervently pursue deep thinking as they grow—making future breakthroughs and creating the world's next revolutionary ideas, arts, products and services.

We are entering our sixth year serving children who love mathematics. The excitement of helping in the appropriate early education of these young mathematicians has brought together an exceptional faculty from across the country. The support of individuals, corporations, and foundations provides Epsilon Camp the resources to help ease the financial burden on the families of these exceptional youths and helps Epsilon Camp expand and deepen its offerings.

Epsilon Camp is a program of Altus Math, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your donations are 100% tax-deductible.
