Wizard House Sorting Quiz

Time to take a test! This Harry Potter themed quiz will help your campers come to a greater understanding about their own personalities. All you need is our quiz questions below (or an adapted version of your own).


Campers fill out our sorting hat quiz to find out which Hogwarts house they belong to. After they’ve finished the quiz, the leader tallies up their answers to discover the house. Majority a) answers = Slytherin. Majority b) answers = Ravenclaw. Majority c) answers = Gryffindor Majority d) answers = Hufflepuff. If there is a tie between houses, let the participant choose what they think. After the quiz, explain to campers what the houses mean, and if participants are happy with their houses or would like to switch. You can then use these houses to make teams later on for other activities.
