What is SigmaCamp?

SigmaCamp and SigmaCamp Next are the one-week sleepaway math and science summer camps. Our programs offer middle and high school students (ages 12 to 17) a unique opportunity to dive deeper into STEM topics with professors and researchers from MIT, Yale, Stony Brook University, Princeton, Stanford and many other universities!

Math and Science

Our mission is to ignite a passion for discovery, encouraging students to explore and experiment in the world around them. Our academic programs are meticulously crafted to highlight the interconnectedness of various scientific disciplines.
Campers have the opportunity to tackle complex Math problems, immerse themselves in lectures on theoretical Physics, engage in hands-on experiments, and venture into new realms within our Chemistry and Biology laboratories. Additionally, they can develop coding skills in Computer Science classes, navigate Engineering puzzles, or construct robots from scratch. Through these experiences, we aim to foster a deep understanding and appreciation for the vast possibilities within the fields of math, science, and technology.

Building the SigmaCamp Community

SigmaCamp was built by a community of scientists who are passionate about extracurricular education to inspire students in STEM topics. Most of the former campers are now scientists with jobs in STEM or pursuing a PhD, and many even come back to teach at SigmaCamp! Over the years, we have raised a new generation of young educators and scientists who run SigmaCamp today!
