Full tuition for Classic Debate Camp in person at Miami University, Ohio, including single dorm room and all meals:
Public Forum or Lincoln-Douglas: $2290
Congressional Debate: $1490
Single Dorm Room Policy:
As part of our Covid Safety Plan, each student will be provided with their own individual dorm room and not share a room with another camper. Given how much time is spent each day interacting closely with other campers and instructors, we have found that most campers really appreciate having their own dorm rooms.
We provide ground transportation for students flying to camp:
LD and PF campers who are flying to camp should fly into the Cincinnati airport, arriving in the afternoon on Saturday, July 15, 2023. We will have staff members stationed at the airport to meet campers and help them get to the shuttle service. We use Executive Transportation Services, an airport shuttle company, to take our campers from the airport to the Miami University campus. There is no additional charge for campers. When camp is done on Sunday, July 23, we also provide the transportation back to the airport. Students should plan for an early evening departure time from the Cincinnati airport. Similarly, we will also provide ground transportation for out-of-state Congressional Debate campers arriving on Sunday, July 16, and leaving on Friday, July 21.
Tuition may be paid in monthly installments:
Individualized monthly payment plans are available.
If a student withdraws before 90 days prior to the start of camp (i.e., April 15, 2023), we will issue a refund of the tuition paid minus a fee of $200. If a student withdraws before 30 days prior to the start of camp (i.e., June 15, 2022), we will issue a refund of the tuition paid minus a fee of $400. If a student withdraws after 30 days prior to the start of camp, no refunds will be given, but the student may transfer his/her registration to the following summer.
If we are not able to hold a program in 2023 due to low sign ups, students will have the option to switch to a different Classic Debate Camp program or receive a full refund.
