Richmond Debate Institute fosters competitive speech and debate in the greater Richmond, Virginia area. Competitive debate has been shown to be an incredible driver of student success, both academically and socially. Our virtual programs and summer camps push students to articulate proper arguments, conduct quality research, and join the debate.
We are excited to announce our 5th annual summer camp!
Our week-long camp ignites student curiosity and motivates public speaking. Students will learn competitive debate and participate in debate tournaments. Our hand picked instructors and organized lesson plans take students through the fundamental and technical skills necessary to onboard any student on to speech and debate.
Join us this summer to articulate proper arguments, conduct quality research, and join the debate!
