making math fun

Good morning!
I know everyone is focusing on end of the year reviews, finals and Regents
but I have a question I like to pose to any 6-12 Math teacher out there:

In what ways have you, your department or your school genuinely made math
fun for your students? I say "genuinely" because I'd really like to know
some specific things that have worked and have made kids say "Hey, that was
math? I didn't even know I was doing math because it was so much fun!"

{Also - if anyone has had success with a Math Club, Math Olympiads or other
extra-curricular Math program please let me know.}

Thanks very much and have a great day!
