Summer programs

Youth Voices

Dive into summer by improving your skills to get a jump start into the school season! Phenomenal camps for any age, experience, and event!

beginner Programs

Our summer beginner camps are perfect for introducing young students to debate and speech! We believe that everyone deserves phenomenal education and premier coaching, no matter how much experience they may have. That’s why our Beginner Programs are also taught by our championship-level coaches. We offer beginner classes in Speech, Congressional, and a general introduction to debate. This program is perfect for students interested in getting their feet wet with debate, or those interested in learning the fundamentals. Over the course of this two-week summer program, our superstar coaching tandem of Sumeer and Zach, who have won multiple state and national championships together, will help students learn the basics of argumentative thinking. 

Advanced Congress

Join us for the 3rd Annual Youth Voices Summer Congress Camp! These boot camp-style lessons are designed for committed Congressional students seeking to practice and refine their skills exponentially over the summer break window, specifically in preparation for debate season once school starts again in the fall. 

       We're looking to get the Youth Voices Congress Team competition-ready and ahead of the curve, so that we can go out and dominate when competition time comes in the fall. This camp, led by Nick and Zach, who have coached Youth Voices students to multiple final rounds and a major championship win at Harvard, provides incredible value. We hope to see you there!

Advanced Speech

Whether you're already a competitive extemper or you're just starting out, Youth Voices offers you the chance to work with one of the premier speech coaches in America today. Coach Justin was the 2016 National Oratory Champion and captain of the speech team at Northwestern University, where he captured multiple Big-10 and AFA titles. Join us this summer and you'll see tremendous growth as a speaker.  This camp is perfect for those who are wanting to pursue speech in the future and want to exceed come the tournament season.

Advanced Public Forum

We are excited to announce that Coach Sumeer will be continuing his Public Forum debate instruction through the summer. The focus of this camp is to prepare students who are new to national circuit competition for upcoming tournaments in the fall. Participation in summer PF will be a great way to adjust to the rigor of competitive debate and will prepare students well on PF resolutions leading up to prestigious competitions.

       Students who are just starting to get interested in the competitive aspect of Public Forum debate are encouraged to enroll in this course which will cover over 20+ hours of instruction! Even students who have not taken competitive debate this year are welcome to join! This summer camp will be an excellent bridge into the fall 2022 tournament season.
