MathPath 2012 held at Mount Holyoke College
South Hadley MA
June 24 – July 22, 2012

On this page are comments about MathPath itself. Some MathPathers have also been to other summer math programs and in 20*10* we asked them for comparisons; for those 2010 comparative comments, click here.

I've never been away before, and MathPath was, I think, a perfect camp for me and for other people who have never been away from home.

Before you go to MathPath you think you have a vast knowledge of math, then you learn the definition of vast...

MathPath was the best camp I have ever gone to! I wish I could stay here forever, but I miss home too. i feel that when i leave, the world would end. I wish that it was school.

I was nervous at first, but MathPath was so much fun and I am so glad that I came.

I don't think that there was a better way I could've spent a month of my summer.

I love Mathpath!

Very good camp. Thank you for trying so hard to make this a great learning experience.

The schedule has been fun, full, packed and just amazing.

Camp has been really fun; time flies so quickly.

I wish we had more time – there were many courses I wish I had taken.

We also got answers to the following specific question: If a friend at home asks you, "What is this MathPath you went to?", what would you say? Some answers:

An awesome camp where math nerds go to do crazy random stuff with other math nerds. And do math, of course.

MathPath is an opportunity to discover that there is life outside of trig identities and derivatives. It broadens your understanding of math and shows you the true beauty of mathematics. As I learned in this camp, math is an art, not a competition.

An awesome math camp for awesome math nerds to meet other awesome math nerds and bond and also learn some awesome math. MathPath is the best time you haven't had yet.

It's like being part of a giant, fun, smart family for a month. It's the best month I have over the summer.

A camp where you learn all the interesting math you can't learn at school.

MathPath is an awesome summer camp. I got to learn how to think in a different way. Also, the balance between math activities and other activities was great!

It was the best camp. You can do math and play all day long. If you want to go to a math camp next year come to MathPath.

A wonderful math camp like no other. If you don't like math, go. You'll love it by the end of camp. If you like math, go. You'll love it even more and meet kids who like math as much as you do.

It's a camp for middle schoolers who are good at math. We of course do math, but we also go on outings and have lots of free time.

A summer enrichment program not designed to advance you in school curriculum, but rather enlighten you on the more obscure and interesting branches of mathematics not taught in schools.

An amazing family of math nerds like me - where I can learn math and have an awesome time.
