2019 Philosophy Camp

William H. Thumel Sr. Business Center

This summer, the Hoffberger Center for Professional Ethics will host its third annual Philosophy Camp for Teens. Designed for students entering grades 10, 11 and 12, the on-campus day camp will explore the "big questions" of philosophy:  What is good and what is evil? How do I know the right thing to do? What is love, friendship, and the real meaning of life? 

July 8-12, 2019
9 a.m.-3 p.m.


  • To register, email cmyers@ubalt.edu.
  • The camp is FREE.
  • The camp is limited to 20 students, who will be accepted on a "first-come" basis only.
  • Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided each day. 

Adult supervision at all times. Students will work collaboratively with faculty and student counselors, and, most importantly, with each other to think carefully about important philosophical questions and ideas, that relate directly to their lives today. Expect to challenge yourself to understand better your own perspective and those of your peers. Expect to become a more critical, creative, and independent thinker about what matters in your own life by the end of camp.
