This is the second time that it was held at the U of A. In addition to ESSO and CMS, the event is sponsored by the Faculty of Science, by PIMS, by the Edmonton Public School Board, and by the Mathematical Council of the Alberta Teachers Association. The camp organizers were Ted Lewis and Andy Liu.
	The camp is intended for student from grades 7 to grade 10. It opened on August 17 and closed on August 24. Twenty-four campers from Alberta and two campers from outside the province stayed in the Lister Hall Residence Complex for its duration. There were also three day students from Edmonton who attended.
	The morning program consisted of a three-hour workshop centered on a lecture. On Sunday, Prof. Andy Liu gave a lecture on Coding. On Monday, Prof. Hans Brungs gave a lecture on the History of Mathematics. On Tuesday, Prof. Edit Gombay gave a lecture on Probability. On Wednesday, Prof. Sudarshan Sehgal Text Box: gave a lecture on Number Theory. On Thursday, Prof. Dragos Hrimiuc gave a lecture on Diophantine Equations. On Friday, Prof. Volker Runde gave a lecture on the Banach-Tarski Paradox.
	The afternoon program was a mixture of academic and extracurricular activities. On Sunday, the students wrote a three-hour contest. On Monday, the camp visited the Odyssium, the former Edmonton Space Science Centre. On Tuesday, the students were divided into groups for a team contest. On Wednesday, the camp visited a cornfield maze just outside Edmonton. On Thursday, Prof. Andy Liu offered an exhibition of part of his puzzle collection. On Friday, the well-known magician, Jon Charles, gave a special performance at the camp.
	The evenings were largely spent in the residence for social activities. The students were supervised by Mr. Gilbert Lee and Mrs. Joyce Pon, the mother of one of the campers. On Wednesday, after the cornfield maze, the camp visited West Edmonton Mall. On Thursday, the students had an eat-Text Box: The ESSO/CMS Alberta Camp
