Discounts for Classic Debate Camp 2024: 

Early Registration Discount for LD/PF/Congress If you sign up for Classic Debate Camp 2024 by May 1, 2024, you can take a $200 discount. 

Full tuition for Classic Debate Camp 2024 at Miami University, Ohio, including single dorm room and all meals:

  • Lincoln-Douglas:  $2290

  • Public Forum:  $2290

  • Congressional Debate:  $1690 

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 13, 2024. 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 21, 2024, 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 by plane on Saturday, July 13, and leaving on Friday, July 19. 

Monthly Installments: 

If you would like to pay the camp tuition in monthly installments, please email us to set up automatic payments by credit card. The initial payment will be 40% of the camp tuition by May 1, and subsequent 2 monthly payments will be 30% each. 


Refund Policy: 

If a student withdraws from CDC2024 by January 1, there is a refund of the tuition paid minus a fee of $100. If a student withdraws before 90 days prior to the start of camp (i.e., April 13, 2024), we will issue a refund of the tuition paid minus a fee of $250. After April 13, no refund will be issued; however, students may transfer their registration and tuition to a future summer with no penalty
