Hosting an online debate campus was not what we envisioned this summer, however, our dedicated staff is committed to providing students with the same incredible educational experience.

To help you hone your skills, Simpson College is again proud to offer the Public Forum Debate Camp in 2020. The camp is held from June 21st through June 26th virtually. The camp is open to students who will be in grades 9-12 in the fall of 2020. We cater to both experienced debaters, as well as first-timers with no experience.

The camp will include five days of direct instruction, practice rounds, and a camp tournament. The camp tournament is not affected by the camp going online. Students and coaches will be taught by some of the top debate instructors in the country. Small lab groups will be capped at eight students per instructor, assuring that each student receives plenty of one-on-one attention.

The cost is $365 in total, with full payment is due June 15. If payment is not received by June 15, registration will be cancelled. The $100 fee is non-refundable. This is a fantastic opportunity to improve your debate skills and have fun. We encourage everyone to take part in this unique debate opportunity!
