Here is a description of some of the safety measures we take at Texas Quiz Bowl Camp:

  • The campus is policed by the University.
  • The dorm is staffed 24-7 by the University.
  • Students are not allowed to leave the dorm complex without a chaperone.
  • The exits are monitored. We post someone near the exit until 2 a.m.
  • The students are directly monitored by TQBA staff from 8 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.
  • Staff members are background checked and trained about safety procedures.
  • Staffer rooms are dispersed near all student rooms.
  • If there is a disturbance or problem, there is always a staffer nearby for help.
  • We check attendance multiple times each day.
  • If students are not where they should be we find them.
  • Students are roomed with students of the same gender and similar age.
  • Students are grouped with students of similar skill and age.
