         CREATIVE WRITING

Learn to write expressively without constraints.  The curriculum is created by Bruno Navasky, a poet, teacher, author of several books and writer for the New York Times Sunday Book Review. 

 

         CHOOSE: MATH GAMES & LOGICAL PUZZLE SOLVING or BRIDGE                                            CONSTRUCTION

Math games and puzzle solving teach fundamentals of mathematical thinking outside of a formal math curriculum.  Bridge construction is a new addition to our math portion of the camp.  A student who chooses this will work with the instructor to build a bridge from various models. The program is designed for our camp by Harvard math/physics graduates and MIT graduate students who love logical games and building things that are practical and elegant.

Learn to play chess in a program designed and supervised by Bruce Pandolfini, one of the most highly regarded chess teachers in the United States (depicted in the movie Searching for Bobby Fisher).
