Texas Quiz Bowl is proud to announce that it will be hosting a 2016 Winter Quiz Bowl Camp. Students currently in grades 4 through 9 are eligible to attend. This day camp will be hosted at Strake Jesuit College Preparatory (8900 Bellaire Blvd, 77036) from Monday, December 26th through Friday, December 30th. Each day, we will meet from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Students can registered for the winter camp via the online form at this link.
The fee for this camp is $375 per student. There is a $50 discount available for students from Catholic middle schools. This will include lunch each day, a t-shirt, and study materials. At this camp students will learn the basics of quiz bowl from TQBA staffers and members of the Strake Jesuit Quiz Bowl Program.
Unlike summer quiz bowl camp, winter camp will not offer course choices. Rather each day all students will take part in sessions covering science, history, humanities, and geography. Additionally each students will have one session during which they will practice lateral thinking with a game called codewords and another session in which they will practice quiz bowl. The experience promises to be fun and rewarding for all students.
