MIDDLE SCHOOL PUBLIC DEBATE PROGRAM

Over the past 5 summers, over 300 students have attended our MSPDP Summer Program

Even if you've attended in previous years, this year we have expanded our staff and curriculum to allow for much more specialization and attention to skills-work.

Especially during our 2-Week Flagship (July 13-24), students will have significantly more time to work with our instructors.

Attending debate camp gives students the ability to learn and work on skills that, because of the time crunch of having to prepare for different topics, often get overlooked during the season. 

If you are entering the 7th or 8th grade, during our 2-Week Flagship, you will actually have the ability to make the MSPDP your core focus, but also take classes in the types of debate that are done in high school - from some of the nation's most successful debate coaches.  

For students in the 7th and 8th grade, during our Flagship Session, there is also an option to stay overnight at UCLA.
