Brief Camp Overview

Dedicated to inspiring the youth and community of Bermuda, Planet Math looks to capitalize and expand on its current offerings of its Xciting Xplorer’s Xpedition; which is a camp full of mathematics, life and social skills building and most importantly FUN! We aim to provide Camp bursaries to 500 kids this upcoming summer of 2022. This Summer Camp Drive pledge period will kicked-off on January 10th, and will end on May 31st, 2022. Within this period, we aim to get sponsorship from amazing and passionate donors to achieve our goals. Kindly see the below article about this initiative as well
more specific details in the attachments below.

 

On the behalf of the Fibonacci Foundation & Planet Math, we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. Our sponsorships and donations will allow us to pair children with professional and caring math educators. Everyone has a critical role to play in helping children fill their social & learning gaps due to Covid-19, especially those most adversely affected by the pandemic, with real-life benefits for hundreds of children in Bermuda. We look forward to helping and supporting our community and country to do what we love best, which is making a difference in people’s lives through mathematics!
