Meredith College in Raleigh is offering a new camp for elementary school girls this summer with a math focus.

Summer Math CAMMP at Meredith is open to rising first grade through rising fifth grade girls. CAMMP stands for Comprehensively Applied Math Manipulatives Program. The camp will offer educational hands-on activities that incorporate math, engineering and technology.

Students will enhance their understanding of mathematics; connect to real world applications with a social science integration; use analytical skills to build and program machines and robots; and experience excitement and education on a college campus.

Indeed, some kids might be just as excited about the math as they are about lunch in Meredith's dining hall being included in the fee.

The camp runs July 21 to July 25. Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday; and 9 a.m. to noon, Friday. The cost is $250.

For more information or to register, contact Associate Professor of Education Cece Toole at or 919-760-8439.

Meredith also offers other summer camps for kids, including athletic camps and music camps.
