Debate Summer Camps for Kids & Teens
Debate summer camps train elementary, middle, and high school students to argue skillfully, eloquently, and effectively. Led by skilled teachers, educators, and professionals, it's no wonder that so many students who attend debate summer camps go on to become lawyers or political advisors. Debate summer camps not only give campers the perspective needed to win debate rounds, but also contribute to the growth of self confidence and critical thinking.
Ages, Tuition, and Session Length at Debate Summer Camps
Overnight debate summer camps typically welcome students between the ages of 12 and 18. Campers are traditionally grouped by age and grade level to maximize learning and social opportunities.
Sleep-away debate camps typically run 1 week, 2 week, 3 week, and 4 week sessions. Costs vary considerably by program, location, instructors, and facilities and can range anywhere from $350 to $1,350 per week. Most debate summer camps are hosted at college or university campuses, with some held at traditional summer camps.
Choosing the Best Debate Summer Camp
There are many important questions that families should consider when choosing a debate summer camp. Does the program emphasize mechanics, strategy, or public speaking skills? Where are students housed? What type of certification do teachers and instructors hold? Is the camp purely academic, or are other activities available to campers? Does the program offer credit that can be attributed to high school or college? What level of competition is available at the camp?
