The Cornell University International Summer Debate Camp is an intensive, week-long program held at Cornell’s main campus in Ithaca, New York from August 2 – 9, 2015. Our camp hosts dozens of the most elite high school students from around the world with faculty from five different countries who each have extensive international debate training experience.
Our campers come from a range of debate backgrounds, ranging from the absolute novice to the highly experienced. Faculty adjust curriculum to the needs of our students, ensuring that each young person is developing skills at an appropriate pace. We even have some campers who return multiple summers in a row, knowing there is always more to learn from the premier Ivy-League debate program.
Eligibility and Cost
Eligibility: All high school students, including those entering their first year or leaving the final year (roughly ages 13-18)
Cost: Contact Lindsay Bing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students stay in single-gender, double-occupancy rooms in the dormitories on North Campus. Current Cornell undergraduate students work as counselors, stay in the dormitories with the campers and are available 24/7 to help students with basic emergencies and concerns.
All campers must cover the cost of their own transportation to and from Ithaca, NY. Our camp will provide shuttles to and from local regional airports including Syracuse Hancock International Airport, Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport and Elmira Corning Regional Airport. Students flying into other airports must arrange their own transit to Ithaca.
