Camp Schedule

Our middle school camps begin at 9:00am and end at 4:00pm, and will be hosted at the VCU Business School on August 10th to 14th. Our camp also provides lunch daily. Our detailed daily schedule will be published online as August approaches. 

Camp Curriculum

Our middle school debate curriculum introduces students to the art of argumentation. Among some of the things students will be doing are: 

  • Formatting  and presenting an argumentative speech

  • Learning the structure of an argument 

  • Entertaining the opposite perspective of the argument, and refuting it. 

  • Researching articles to include data in their argument

  • Refining their public speaking and presentation 

 
 
Camp Cost

Our middle school camp is $240. This includes the cost of daily lunch.
