27th edition 

Organized by Bright Math Camp Inc. Non-for-profit camp for bright, gifted students & high ability students Rented location at University of Ottawa 

The Bright Math Camp represents a unique out-of-school learning opportunity for students with a drive to explore, to question, to reason, and to discuss a range of sound mathematical topics. These topics, demonstrably well suited to student’s level and interests, derive from areas apart from the mainstream of school mathematics, and are introduced and developed from first principles. Our most successful topics have related numbers and numeration, arithmetic operations, number theory, combinatorics, informal geometry, probability and statistics, non-routine problem solving, and recreational cryptography.
