Kind of cheating, but you could define a function P(n) which is the product of all functions in this thread.
Well, first, it's not much stronger than the strongest
And second, it's illdefined since what if someone adds another function to this thread

So, as a highschool student, I am curious whether anyone knows about any CA-related summer camps for high-schoolers. I have recently looked at the Wolfram Camp but I was unfortunately rejected.

So, does anyone know of any summer camps for high-schoolers where CA would be a highly relevant topic?
