## Time to apply to summer Math Camps

San Jose Math Circle does not offer a summer program, but around the U.S. there are many great math summer camps.
The best summer programs usually have an application process and are selective.

MathPath is already accepting applications for summer 2018; they have a "rolling admissions" process.
