Former Students Say...

"The past two summers I've spent have been incredibly informative, challenging, and fun. It was an honor to work with many of the top debate coaches and debaters in the country. Every single lab leader was excellent at offering in-depth feedback, useful insight both about debate generally and about the topic, and at creating an enjoyable lab experience. Lab leaders made themselves available to listen to speech redos, answer questions, and provide feedback and guidance over research. Their commitment to helping each debater improve was inspiring and I feel incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to work with them. Both the camp-wide and lab-specific lectures were in-depth and I was constantly learning new information. Debaters have many practice debate opportunities over the course of the camp. These debates are highly challenging and competitive and debaters have access to excellent feedback afterward. Being surrounded by motivated and hard-working debaters pushed me to work as hard as possible as well. My experiences at seven-week have helped me become a better debater and I cannot wait to return next year. I cannot recommend it highly enough to any debater interested."
