The main lounge is the hub of camp social life, with constant activity at most hours of the day. Near the Main Lounge is the schedule board, which tells you what's going on this week at camp. There are other smaller lounges throughout the dorm: designated lounges for ping-pong, Zome (a mathematical construction tool), board games, and the Mathcamp library, plus all-purpose lounges for relaxing.
The Mathcamp Office is the place to go for information, quarters for laundry, to check out to go off-campus, to see the camp nurse, or just to drop by and say hello to the staff.
The configuration of the dorms can vary from summer to summer: we have either one large dorm or several adjacent smaller dorms. Students are always housed on single-gender halls. Most of our dorm rooms are doubles, but this, too, can vary: we may have triples or single rooms available. (In 2017, students will be housed in singles and doubles.)
Being at Mathcamp is a little bit like being a college student for five weeks: you will live in a college dorm, eat in a college dining hall, and have classes in the (you guessed it) college classrooms. We also invite you to make use of the resources available to you on campus:

Anything on the campus map is defined as "on campus." Students are free to go off-campus in groups of three or more, with some caveats: the group must check out before leaving, bring a cell phone, be back before the end of sign-in, and check back in upon return.
