K-State Debate Summer Camp
For high school competitors in debate who want to hone their skills and get a taste of what college-level competition looks like. The K-State Debate Camp which will be held virtually Sunday, July 25 - Saturday, July 31, will focus on providing students with high quality debate instruction from experienced debate educators. This camp is built on a belief that training in core argumentation and debate fundamentals, skills such as flowing, refutation, warrant analysis, evidence comparison, impact calculus, and judge adaptation, are useful for students regardless of whether they will be debating in front of lay judges or in front of college debaters and national circuit coaches. This is a skills-intensive camp rather than a research-intensive camp. Students will receive a starter core of evidence cut by K-State Coaches and Debaters. Students will spend time refining their cases, engaging in practice speeches and speaking drills, learning more from topic experts, and getting hands-on, one-on-one feedback from K-State College Professors and Debate Coaches.
