Teen Classics Camp (Ages 14-17)


Word Power

Word Power is for teens that want a competitive edge in school and on standardized tests while learning about ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome. Over 60% of all English words have Greek or Latin roots, as does 90% of the vocabulary of the sciences and technology. Learn lots of common roots and add words like “querulous” and “internecine” to your vocabulary. Campers will learn a little language history and some fun facts about the ancient Greeks and Romans. At the end of the camp, you can test your skills and win prizes in “Roots Jeopardy.”
