Critical Thinking & Learning
Our camps focus on understanding content critically, pushing students to question and articulate the premises and impacts of arguments. That's why on average, a high school debater scores 44% better on critical thinking assessments (EdCom Institute, 2011), and why debaters on average score 25% better on reading and writing assessments (Journal of Adolescence, 2010)
Speech & Debate is among the top two most favored activities among college recruiters, according to a Yale University study (Dr. Minh A. Luong). Moreover, according to the Wall Street Journal, high school debaters with a state or national award are 30% more likely to be admitted to a top-tier university.
Social & Fun
Our students leave at the end of the week with new friends who they expect to see at weekend tournaments, or the following summer. Our personable instructors, team lunches, and student activities make camp a fun experience for everyone.
