Registration deadline for STEM summer camps
Jul 1, 2022, 9:00 AM - 10:00 PM
Before Fall semester begins, the College of Science welcomes our incoming first-year students to attend in-person camps on our Fairfax Campus. Read below for information and FAQs on the camps being planned this summer.
Math Boot Camp
July 11 - 15, 2022 - Monday through Friday
On campus with residential and commuter options
The Math Bootcamp aims to improve math placement scores and prepare students for college math courses. During the 5-day residential camp, students are assembled into small working groups based on skill level to obtain deeper understanding of mathematical concepts in algebra, trigonometry or calculus. Math professors, graduate students and undergraduate learning assistants will provide guidance and support to each camp attendee. On the first day (if needed) and last day of camp, students will have the opportunity to take the math placement test. Participation in the camp adds one additional opportunity to the Mason two-attempt limit (max 3, total).
The camp is in-person on Mason’s Fairfax campus, Students can choose to reside on Mason’s Fairfax campus for the week or commute to and from campus.
- $450 – on-campus residents
- $250 – commuters
STEM Bridge Camps
Experience science courses and the college lifestyle before the fall semester. In these two-day intensive camps that meet in person on the Fairfax campus, students review lab protocol, exam preparation, and experience sample classes from Mason faculty. There will also be short advising, career sessions, and time to meet current Mason students.
In summer 2022, there will be three options for STEM Bridge Camp:
- July 25 - 26, 2022 (Biology/Chemistry), Monday and Tuesday
- July 28 - 29, 2022 (Math/Physics/Engineering), Thursday and Friday
- Attend all week and enjoy a special Networking Day on Wednesday July 27.
Students can choose to reside on Mason’s Fairfax campus for the duration or commute daily to and from camp.
- $100 – for each 2 day camp, commuters
- $250 – for 2 day camp, residential (includes one night stay in a Fairfax Campus dorm, single rooms available for additional fee)
- $200 – for both 2 day camps, commuters
- $450 – for 5 days, residential
Regardless of the options you choose, campers can make strong connections with peers and faculty that support them through their entire college experience.
