NSD’s Public Forum camp offers a personalized approach to debate curriculum, focused on the practical application of skills in small groups. Our curriculum embraces all skill levels and includes constructive lab periods where students will do several practice drills and practice rounds each day, as well as lectures on fundamental debate skills. By hiring more staff per student than other camps and by spending nearly all our instructional time in groups of fewer than 10 students, we strive to create a close-knit environment that allows our instructors to know where each student needs help.
