dc.description.abstract For the last four years Maseno University, Kenya, has been running a maths camp bringing together both international and local, lecturers and teachers to engage secondary students in the subject through puzzles, games, technology and extra-curricula mathematics. This paper presents the core values that are behind the success of the camps as well as how the initiative has evolved to scale out to more students through school maths clubs. A case will be made that there are changes happening in Kenyan education which have created a window of opportunity for such initiatives to prosper, where traditional teacher training has not been a success. Finally it will be mentioned how the camps have already spread to Ethiopia, Ghana and the UK, illustrating the potential for innovation in such low resource environments to have global impact. en_US
