*** The account for , Epsilon Camp has expired. ***

Epsilon Camp is a two-week residential summer program for highly gifted 7-12 year olds who are captivated by math. Math professors and professional mathematicians introduce campers to the rich world of higher mathematics, with topics ranging from combinatorics to hyperbolic geometry to visual group theory. 


Epsilon Camp 2023 is being held from July 9 to July 23 on the campus of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.


Epsilon Camp is seeking mathematicians specializing in providing mathematics activities to students in the age range 7-8. The program aims to introduce campers to a wide variety of deep ideas that they will continue to see throughout their mathematical careers. Sample topics include: 

  • Number theory: prime numbers, divisibility tests, arithmetic in different bases, and more. 

  • Computational mathematics: recurrences for figurate numbers, Fibonacci numbers, generalizations, and binary information encoding. 

  • Geometry: polygon angles, plane tilings, polyhedra, and fractals. 

  • Counting: permutations and combinations, Pascal's triangle, inclusion-exclusion, and other counting methods. 

Applicants should have interest and experience in working with highly gifted children aged 7-8 with exceptional mathematical ability and a love of mathematics. A mathematics degree is required for this position, but it need not be a Ph.D. degree. 


Faculty are paid an honorarium of $3000, provided room and board, and reimbursed for travel to and from camp. 


To be considered, you must be legally authorized to work in the U.S.
