Full tuition for Classic Debate Camp 2025 at Miami University, Ohio, including single dorm room and all meals:

  • Lincoln-Douglas:  $2490

  • Public Forum:  $2490

Post-Camp Early Registration Discount:

  • Register for CDC2025 by August 1, 2024, and receive $700 off of the full tuition.


Single Dorm Room Policy: 

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: Campers who are flying to camp should fly into the Cincinnati airport, arriving before 4:00 pm on Saturday, July 12, 2025. 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 20, 2025, we also provide the transportation back to the airport. Students should plan for a departure time after 6:00 pm from the Cincinnati airport. 

Monthly Installments: 

Monthly installment tuition payment plans are available for CDC2025. Please make an initial credit card payment of 20% ($1790 x 20% = $358). Then we will set up automatic credit card payments with you for 8 monthly payments of 10% each ($179 at the start of each month). 


Refund Policy: 

If a student withdraws from CDC2025 by January 1, 2025, 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 12, 2025), we will issue a refund of the tuition paid minus a fee of $250. After April 12, no refund will be issued; however, students may transfer their registration and tuition to a future summer with no penalty
