Math Art Connections

Policy Handbook

This handbook is designed to assist parents and families in understanding the philosophy and practices of the (MAC) Math Art Connections Mini Summer Camps! Please read this handbook carefully. If you have any questions, please contact the camp director and teacher, Angela Greene at 919 886 1089 or email, please feel free to email or call with any questions or concerns that you might have.


We are highly qualified teachers, experienced with students of all ages. We understand that art has connections with all disciplines. We have developed a summer mini camp curriculum for K-6 Graders! Our Math Art Connections (MAC) camps help campers connect math skills to fun arts, crafts, and game activities to maximize the creativity and enjoyment of learning. Each camp is currently limited to 6 participants. We believe that keeping the 3:1 student to teacher ratio low, maximizes the opportunities for your child’s success. We want to work with parents and families to make this summer camp experience the best possible.


All camps are four 4/ 2-hour sessions from 9am-11am occurring on two consecutive Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the summer. We work indoors and outdoors depending on the activities scheduled for that day. All families are required to provide any water or snacks your child might require during the summer camps. Your child should wear comfortable sneakers and clothing that can get dirty or bring an apron or art shirt to protect clothing. The fees are listed on the website Camps page. Due to limited capacity, registration and fee payment must be complete to reserve your space in a camp.


Camps are located at the Parkwood Association HOA Community Building, 1417 Seaton Road, Durham, NC 27713.



The MAC camps are open to K-6th graders. To enroll your child in the program, complete the camp registration form at or send an email requesting a registration form to Your place is reserved when all registration forms are complete and payment has been made.


Family Open House will be held at the Parkwood Association HOA Community Building, 1417 Seaton Road, Durham, NC 27713 on Saturday May 18, 2024 from 10:00 to 11:00 am.
