Update for CDSI 2020: 

August 3rd-August 14th–We had a very successful run for our first-ever virtual debate camp! Information for our 2021 debate camps will be updated at the end of the upcoming debate season. 

We were thrilled to virtually host our two-week summer debate camps for nearly 100 students.

Here’s what some students had to say about their camp experience:

“Reviewing terms was a good way to bounce back into debate especially after summer.” -Samantha

“I really love the energy and humor of my lab leader. I also think that it’s also really great to get back at the fundamentals.”  -Jonathan

“What I enjoyed most today was that Disney movies were the topic and we talked about the racism in the world.” -Giselle

“I enjoyed watching the lab instructors do skits on what not to do in debate.” -Joey

As camp wrapped up, our Program & CPS teams distributed goody bags of hand sanitizers, face masks, notebooks and T-shirts to campers. Special thanks to Whitney M. Young Magnet High School for allowing us to use their outdoor space to ensure each student safely received their bag. Lessons learned from the virtual camps guided our planning for virtual debate competitions and tournaments this fall.
