Advanced Debate Camp

For high school debaters looking for more advanced training, the Coolidge Foundation also offers educational seminars in debate. Students get to learn from Dr. Ben Voth, Coolidge Debate Fellow and Director of Debate and Speech at Southern Methodist University, and other experts.

The next Advance Debate Camp will be held during the 2019-2020 academic year. Check back for details. To maximize hands-on training and individual attention, enrollment is limited to a small number of students. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the camp, please contact Debate Director Jared Rhoads (

[Note: this program is calibrated for experienced debaters. Students seeking more basic training in debate should check out our Introduction to Debate program, which we offer to school groups throughout the year in Plymouth Notch, VT.]
