2018 Winter Camps

Spring semester courses are not very effective in the short term as most of the exams are early spring. This is why winter camps are the choice of motivated students preparing for the exams. Free from ongoing school work, an intensive study program makes significant progress possible in a few days.

General Summary of Camps
Best For:
Students who wants to be ready before the spring contests.
Target Competitions:
All USACO, AMC10/12, AIME, USA(J)MO, F=ma, USAPhO
Format:
Residential and Day Camp
Dates:
December 26-30 and Jan 1-5
Location:
Irvine, CA; Cupertino, CA; and Online

Students already taking a Basic Fall class can take spring semester curriculum during the winter term in a camp format. Once the foundational basic curriculum is mastered, the incoming spring semester can be used as a practice period until the examinations.

Students who are currently taking Advanced class can take Problem Solving (PS) classes during the winter term in a camp format to master problem solving skills.

New students intending to catch up, can do so with our fall term self paced online video courses before the winter camp. This is especially useful for upper grade students who desire an accelerated preparation schedule.

Star League winter camps are fun! Those who have never been to one of our winter camps are missing out. Bonfire at the beach, movie nights, laser tag, board game tournaments and ping-pong championship! All and more are at winter camps. Those who have never been to one of our winter camps are missing out. Check out our last year's winter camp album at our facebook page to find out more.

Out of town students are welcome. Housing arrangements for out of town students include airport assistance, housing, and meals for both Cupertino and Irvine camps. Residential students stay at nearby hotels under the supervision of faculty and staff.
