Topics for the 2024 Camp

This years theme for the camp is Graphs, Groups and Games.

Topic will include:

  • intro to graphs in discrete mathematics, and their properties (graph theory)
  • intro to finite groups, and their properties (group theory)
  • intro to one player and two player games (game theory)
  • applications of graph theory and group theory to game theory
  • proof techniques such as induction and contradiction
  • a modest amount of problems to develop these skills.

Proper Clothing and Supplies

Please dress appropriately for BC weather: we will have a hike to the Burnaby Mountain Part Monday afternoon, and will be walking outside to the SFU Dining Hall on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Remember to bring your water bottle every day.  Bring a calculator and writing utensils.


Lunches and snacks are provided.  In consideration for the environment, please bring your water bottle with you to the camp.

Buses, Parking and Maps

For those travelling by bus, remain on the bus until the final bus loop (near Cornerstone building). This is the closest stop to the Science building where the Trottier Studio is located.

Short term (paid) parking is available in front of the Cornerstone Building.  For those looking for just a place to quickly drop-off and pick-up participants there is space at the western edge of the East Parking lot (one level down from Cornerstone parking).  See the link to the interactive campus map below.
