Where you will master logic, a life skill you need to succeed:

    In the subjects you study
    In the professions and jobs you pursue
    In the decisions you make

Hermione Granger got it right when, facing the potion-master's test, she said:
This isn't magic - it's logic - a puzzle.  A lot of the greatest wizards haven't got an ounce of logic; they'd be stuck here forever."
 Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone

Josh Singh, a student from Summer Camp 2016, says
Logic is the study of everything, seeing how things work. From implication elimination to truth tables, we learned amazing things. Almost every day I use proofs that I learned at the camp, to explain basic concepts of life. In debate being able to use logic to help formulate the argument is a blessing. I had a great time at summer camp and I would gladly go back!"
