Math Camp Where the Fun Multiplies

Math and fun? All in the same sentence? Who ever heard of such a thing? Only those lucky students who attended math camp April 4–8 at Camp MiVoden.

Boyde and Laurie Hosey, teachers at Colville Valley Adventist School, have developed an extraordinary math camp. The program immerses students in a way that piques their interest, challenges them in a non-threatening, arcade-oriented environment that encourages risk-taking. At the end of the week, students who’ve been struggling in math leave confident and convinced that math is fun!

The program is fast-paced and requires students to memorize math facts that help them succeed. Students discover and correct their errors, learn from their peers, and learn how to ask for help when they need it. Everything about their day includes math. Whether it’s recreation or food, math is in everything.

MiVoden Math Camp dates are: Oct. 17–21 and Nov. 7–11, 2005, and April 3–7, 2006.
