Welcome to Colorado Math Camp
Here are the details for the second session.
Dates: July 11th – 15th
Times: 9am to noon (I’ll open the doors at about 8:45am, and stay until everyone is picked up; drivers please be on time )
Location: Smoky Hill United Methodist Church (19491 E Smoky Hill Rd, Centennial, CO 80015)
Teachers: Mrs. Christy Marini will be teaching the “Intro” group, and I’ll be teaching the middle/high school Advanced group.
Materials: students should bring a few pencils and a calculator, if possible (we’ll have a few extras). They’ll each get a folder on the first day that they should bring back each day. It would also be a good idea to bring a water bottle and small snack each day.
Overview: We’ll do problem sets, and play math and logic games, and have a 10-minute break each day. Though we’ll do “competition math,” the atmosphere is not competitive. We’ll learn cool strategies and do hard problems, but not in a stressful or competitive way.
There’s just one main front door at the church. Just come on in and we’ll meet for a few minutes all together in the huge meeting area for a brief orientation.
At Colorado Math Camp, we do math competition problems in a fun and engaging atmosphere. We just focus on the math, and on learning new strategies. In other words, we do “competition math” in a “non-competitive way.”

Our son __ gets more enthused about math after each of these camps than before… it is, hands down, one of the best run and motivating academic camps out there. Hats off to Mr. Bixby for creating such an incredible experience- challenging yet so fun, and a great way for math to be a way to connect with new and old friends!
My twins have participated in the Rich Morrow Math challenge two years in a row and have always wondered how to solve those last 5-8 problems efficiently and accurately . This camp teachers you that and well beyond . It’s the perfect stimulation and progress for Math loving kids who want to learn beyond the school curriculum . The teachers are pleasant, patient and very fair. The team discussions and bouncing off of ideas really helps kids put their point of view across . I think these camps are going to be on our summer agenda for the next few years . Thank you Mr Bixby for your encouragement and guidance.
This was the BEST class I have attended in my life. Other classes are dull and they tend to get boring and I begin to lose my interest. But this class had something in it that always kept it interesting and made me eager to keep learning.
What I really liked about the camp was how we, the students, could go up to the board and present our solutions to the class. That way we could see what we did wrong or what we could’ve done to improve our solutions.
I loved the class, and I learned a lot of new information that I had never even heard of!
We are so lucky that we have such excellent math summer camps right here in Colorado! All too often quality camps are clustered on the East Coast or in California, which makes them almost unaffordable. It is also great that there are three different levels, allowing kids with different math contest experience to be adequately challenged and learn a lot. Although the camps are only three hours a day, the time is used wisely and very efficiently, and the kids still have the afternoon to enjoy the summer.
Colorado math camp was a new experience for my daughter and was fun and engaging all week. We will definitely sign up next year, and hopefully will be able to participate in person.
Thank you for such a great math experience — my son’s brain really “stretched” for the first time in months and he was sad to see the camp end. We’ll see you next year!”
She loved how her teacher interacted with the students and made the class challenging yet fun. She felt her input was important and listened to. She was very satisfied with the overall experience.
I loved learning the shortcuts and learning test taking strategies and team strategies. It was also super to learn what things I need to have memorized to make my performance go faster like memorizing the squares and cubes and primes. The camp got me really pumped up for this season. My teammates and I were able to set goals for our individual performance and our team goals. I think we already have an advantage for our team thanks to Mr. Bixby being so generous with his coaching knowledge.
Mr. Bixby did a great job teaching mathematics techniques and skills to my son. This camp helped him remain engaged in math over the summer. My son really enjoyed the opportunity to develop his math skills at this camp. It got him really excited about his school’s math team and the math competitions during the upcoming year..
