About Rice University

Rice has been consistently ranked one of America’s best teaching and research universities and boasts extremely low student-to-professor ratios, thus making it an ideal venue for our Houston, TX summer camps.

Located on 300 acres with over 4,000 trees just three miles from downtown Houston, Rice University includes about 50 major buildings, designed over a period of nearly a century, which represent the changes in style of 20th century American architecture. The university's earliest buildings are characterized by red tile roofs, rose-hued brick, semicircular archways, and elaborate detailing. George Bush Intercontinental Airport is located approximately 25 miles from campus, and Houston Hobby Field Airport is approximately 10 miles from campus.

We will use Rice's outdoor playing fields for traditional camp activities such as ultimate frisbee, capture the flag, kickball, chess tournaments, and other board games. Come explore campus with us!
