Welcome to the Summer Programming School "Volga Camp"! Volga Camp is a school targeting algorithms, data structures and special mathematical chapters for school students of the 7th grade and older. Here you can get invaluable experience and prepare for programming competitions.

The School was to be held near Kostroma, on "Berendeyevy Polyany" recreation department. But this year it will be held online from July 21 to August 4.

There will be 5 separate programs, each having a different difficulty level. The first 4 programs will be held in Russian and the 5th — in English. The registration for Russian programs is closed.

The School is conducted by the ACM MISIS competitive programming centre in collaboration with teachers and graduates of school 179, students and teachers of FCS HSE and DIHT MIPT.

To participate you need to get registered here and then go through a selection process in the form of online competition. The selection contest will be open for 48 hours on July 11-12 (you can write it at a time convenient for you). The Participation fee is 200 €. And we have a special discount for students from developing countries except China, as our project has recently received some sponsor help. For participants from these countries the fee will be reduced to 50 €. Find more information on our official web page: https://volgacamp.ru/en/school

I see it says "school students", but since it is all online, can professionals also apply by any chance? Also, is the syllabus available anywhere?

    Students and graduates can apply for our student camp. You can read about it here. We do not announce the foreign group program so far, as it may yet be corrected depending on the results of the selection contest.

At the time of the pandemic, many learning websites give access to learn us for free because many institutes are totally off at this time.

I would like to request you to give us free access to this camp.

    Hello! That is right, many universities now make their online courses free. However, our project is not an online course, as all the lectures are read in real-time so there will be direct communication between a student and a coach. We cannot make this event free, as it involves many coaches and organizers whose work should be paid for.

It seems that the given registration form has something wrong. The name field's warning says that "must be a valid email address" and the email field's warning says that "must be a number".

Must payment come before the admission contest? What if I am not sure if I want to attend but might want to try contest to see?
