summer math camps Santa Clara and Portola Valley

Bring math to life with a fun-packed week of fascinating number challenges, math mysteries, and investigations that get kids’ whole bodies moving!

We have all kinds of campers at Math Quest Discovery camps. Some LOVE math and are looking for even more fun ways to satisfy their love of numbers. Others are anxious or confused about math, and want to understand and like it more.

By the end of camp, all the kids have their favorite ways to “play” with math. Even better, they feel confident and excited to try out big kid’s math from higher grades!

What kind of math will my child learn?

Because camps are so highly individualized, every child’s experience of the math is different. Here are some examples of math our campers have learned through play:

  • calculating the height of a tree using shadows (fifth grader, Shadow Math)
  • square roots, factorials, and order of operations (second grader, Four Fours activity)
  • how to solve algebra equations (third grader, Hands On Equations)
  • how to find circumference and diameter of a bubble (first grader, Bubble Geometry)
  • proportion and ratio, converting measurements (fourth grader, If I Were A Giant)
  • finding the Fibonacci sequence in nature (kindergartener, Nature Math)
