The Math Boot Camp kicks off on Monday, July 20 and runs through Thursday, July 30, 2015. The sessions run Monday-Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The topics covered, as determined by the pre-boot camp survey, will range from pre-algebra to calculus.

Students who complete at least one camp will be entered in an opportunity drawing for one of three completion awards: $250 book/tuition voucher to Santa Ana College, an Apple Watch, or a Santa Ana College Centennial gift basket.
