Debate Summer Camp
Experience our core components, designed for success.
An ADI program is never just a class. Our multi-faceted approach to debate education guarantees an engaging, effective, and individualized curriculum for every student at affordable cost of $800 for two weeks.
Labs serve as campers' classrooms. These small groups, organized by age and experience level, allow instructors to teach individualized lessons and lead engaging activities to reinforce learning.
Led by experts in their fields, campers choose and attend camp electives to craft their ideal curriculum and enrich their debate education by exploring their own individual interests and passions.
We believe in learning by doing and equip students with valuable debate skills in a hands-on camp tournament. At the end of the session, we invite families to celebrate our debaters' progress!
During our program, students will:
Debate is first and foremost about communication, and we value fostering a friendly learning environment at our programs. Not only do our campers love learning debate, they also love...
... and more! Our program has no boring lectures; aside from engaging debate activities, we also integrate classic summer camp recreation to ensure that students have fun while they learn.
is lunch included?
Lunch is provided but not included in your tuition payment. Students may opt to bring their own lunch to camp or pre-order through ADI. We cater from DiCapri Pizzeria, a local option offering pizza, mac and cheese, pasta, etc. ranging from $2-$6 in price.
What should i wear?
All attire is casual. On the last day, we will encourage campers to dress up for our family showcase
is extended day available?
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer an extended day program; the latest pick-up time from an ADI summer program is 3:20PM. We encourage students to carpool to camp and are happy to help connect local families.
is adi a good fit for BEGINNERS?
Yes! About half of our students have never attended a speech and debate program, and ADI is a wonderful environment to introduce elementary and middle school students to the activity. We organize our debate students by age and experience to help maximize every camper's learning.
