Firecracker Math Camp combines half-a-day math instructions in the morning followed by fun activities in the afternoon (see below). Our camp is for curious and challenge-loving kids from 5 to 16. Morning classes cover selected topics from number theory, algebra, geometry, combinatorics, graph theory, logic, the basics of computer science. Instructions employ math games, math-based magic tricks, curious paradoxes, and contests to spark kids’ interest and boost their skills and confidence in math. The daily schedule for each age group will be posted two weeks prior the start day. 


We offer a choice of exciting afternoon programs such as cooking, magic, art or fun science (please note that not all afternoon activities are available at every location).
