The goal of this curriculum is to take already competitive debaters and make them competitive at the state level - something at which we have proven success.The focus is on skills rather than evidence cutting. The students will participate in a plethora of debates throughout the week in addition to the end of camp tournament. Students will be handed several files upon registration from which these debates will be based, meaning students also become masters at these arguments by the end of camp.
