What is SigmaCamp?

SigmaCamp is a week-long math and science sleepaway camp for students 12-16 years old. SigmaCamp gives campers a unique opportunity to learn math and science from professional scientists. Our faculty include leading specialists from Stony Brook University, MIT, Brookhaven National Lab and Harvard Medical School.

We believe in creating an immersive environment where campers are able not only to learn new things from real scientists in the classroom but more importantly to be able to discuss ideas with faculty outside of the classroom. Many of our staff members were lucky enough to have attended similar camps growing up; it was such an inspiring experience that we wanted to make it possible for the next generation of young and bright minds, and thus SigmaCamp was born.

The goal of Sigma is to ignite the spark of curiosity in students. Our campers are able to get a first-hand account of what real scientific research is like and observe the interdependence between Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, and Computer Science. We hope not to merely interest our campers with cool facts and exciting demos, but to give them a profound understanding of why and how things work. We will leave it to them to make observations and rediscover the laws of Nature, following in the footsteps of scientists from the time of ancient Greece to the present day.

We aim to make SigmaCamp an unforgettable experience - one that might change the way campers and staff alike interact with the world around them. We will teach you to ask the right questions and introduce you to people who can help to find the right answers.
