Math may be a four letter word and not what we associate with fun but Abacus Math Camp is going to change the way kids think about math with a fun and engaging summer day camp for kids ages 5-9.
Kids won’t just be learning math, Abacus keeps kids engaged, entertained, and constantly learning, they will rotate through five periods each day, including time for creativity, time to run around during recess, manners, reading and of course, math.
Here’s a sample of what your child’s day will look like:
MathMr. Even and Mr. Odd (Recommended for rising K and 1st graders)
Explore the properties of even and odd numbers with Mr. Even and Mr. Odd. Watch out! Mr. Even likes to get even!
Frog Resort Decimal System (Recommended for rising 2nd and 3rd graders)
Gain a deeper understanding of our base-10 decimal system with Ranger Mat as he takes you on a tour of Frog Resort.
Note: Depending on a child’s age/grade or ability, he or she will do only one of the above math themes each week. Each of the above math themes are available both weeks of camp.

Learn 5 different big vocabulary words each week through fun comic illustrations, hand motions, and rhymes.
