The University of St. Thomas in Houston, Tex., is offering athletic, academic, and music camps for high school students this summer, according to the University’s website.
The academic programs include “Business Boot Camp,” “Critical Thinking and Logic,” “Life and Genome Summer Camp,” “Summer Institute of Mathematics,” and “Virtue, Character and Community.”
Rising high school juniors and seniors can take part in “Critical Thinking and Logic” camp. The University reports:
[The camp] introduces basic issues in formal and informal reasoning and includes a study of common errors in argumentation. The emphasis is on hands-on instruction and everyday examples. The camp helps improve not only abilities to recognize and evaluate arguments, but also developing your own arguments.
The “Virtue, Character and Community” camp introduces students “to the art of close, analytical, integrative reading and discussion of texts drawn from multiple disciplines and historical periods” and “employs the Socratic method of discussion.”
Online registration for the camps is open. Please see the University’s website for more details.
The University of St. Thomas is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
