Hi,

I was looking for "math camp"/summer university programs that I could enroll in a few months and stumbled upon Camp Euclid. I also remember mathwonk mentioning it a few times. (or was it another math camp?)

Anyway, I just wanted to get some further insight on this. Did any of you participate in this, either as mentors or students? How was your experience? Is it significantly hard to get into the program or is an interest and hard working attitude towards mathematics sufficient?

It seems appealing as I've never participated in any kind of Olympiad before nor was such an opportunity available to me in the past. Besides, it's not like I went out of my way to find one! Anyway, this looks like it could be an enriching experience and it could also be of great help to me as I intend on writing a math entrance exam which is very Olympiad-like. I should admit that it also looks a tad intimidating to me...but that's good as it motivated me to work harder on brushing up my math. (I'm currently in the process of re-learning high school math, this time with proofs and all that cool, fancy stuff!)

Any thoughts on this? You guys know of similar math-camps?

Thanks!
