Frequently Asked Questions
How many campers are in each group?
The limit for most camps is 12 campers total. For our younger campers the ratio of teachers to students is 1:6, for older campers, 1:8. Smaller camp sizes means kids get more individualized attention to enhance learning.
How long is camp?
At most locations MathTree camps are 2-week, ½-day programs. However, each location has full-day options available along with Before and After Care.
Is your camp for kids who struggle with math or kids who love math?
Yes to both. Because we maintain a low teacher to camper ratio, we are able to accommodate the needs of students, whether they be to fill in the gaps of understanding or to grow and stretch math skills.
Are you strict about ages and grade levels?
No. Our age brackets are to be used as a guide for parents—a place to start in the camp selection process. We are most concerned that the needs of each camper are met. If you have questions about your child’s placement, please contact us directly. Proper placement is essential to learning and fun!
Can we just sign up for Hands-On Math?
Our passion is to see students grow in their skill and love of math. The core to their success lies in our academic camps: Bean Counting 101, Bean Counting 201, Multiplication Matters, MathTree® Roots, Roots-to-Leaves, and Algebra Appetizers. Hands-On Math is an opportunity for students to use the skills they gain in these core camps and is only available to campers who are participating in the full-day program.
