    2018-2019 AFF list

    Has anyone starting a running list off known camp affs on this topic?it would gladly help if you could share im kinda out of the loop rn
  2. Hi Everyone! If you've seen much of my content you might know that I am the owner and Director of Debate at the Digital Debate Camp. We are an online camp that aims to replace the pedagogical function of the traditional camp structure by utilizing online education strategies. We function the same as a regular normal camp in theory - there are lectures, practice speeches, and tons of 1-on-1 instruction (but more on that later). While we can't quite recreate the special feeling of a summer immersed in debate surrounded by peers, we also know that access to a traditional camp is often far outside the means of most debaters. Because we can sidestep the fixed costs of housing etc. the Digital Debate Camp is priced at a modest $400. When I was in high school my family couldn't come close to affording a top camp without significant financial aid, and because we heavily privilege accessibility, we maintain an aggressive aid program with an enormous success rate. We don't think we can eclipse the formal camp structure, but we have a lot to offer. Our camp is quite long - we run from June 1st to August 1st. Second, we offer more 1-on-1 instruction than any other camp I know. Our instructors offer dozens of office hours a piece each week, ensuring someone will always be available when you are for practice speeches, argument development, file critique, or whatever else you may want out of an instructor. We instruct LD, PF, and Policy debate. We are also specially attuned to novice debate, from middle school on up. You can find out more at our new, updated website: www.digitaldebatecamp.com If you have any questions, I'd love to take them here, or you can contact me directly through our website. Note to mods: I've paid to advertise on the site every time I've been prompted. The website owner can feel free to take advertising fees for this summer from my residual evazon balance.

    7 week debate camps

    So this year I attended UTNIF 3 Weeks Skills Intensive and I really enjoyed it. From the people I met to how much better I got at debate. From my great experience and success in this season so far, I was wondering and already planning to attend a 7 week debate camp. The questions that I am most concerned with at the moment are: 1) What are the best 7 week debate camps and why? 2) What was your experience (if you went to it) and do you think it was worth it/how much better did you become? P.S. I already know that how much better you become is dependent on how seriously you take the camp as well as how much you actually work.

    Top 5 Affs from other workshops?

    Hey everyone, new to Cross-X.com, but I'd like some help finding the Best Affs from other Workshops (Camps). I have a google form survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSco_3FLIxPbLm-6t8cEWx1_pqoxCOVXPfEgjUhZNXTkgdQtLw/viewform I'd appreciate if you guys helped me out. If anyone has any of their own affs that they want to add, that's fine by me. Thanks

    Debate Camp

    I can't do debate camp this summer, so I'm trying to find some good camps for next year. Any recommendations?
  11. Anyone know a lot about this camp. I am looking for a well rounded camp, not too kritikal. Any other places I should look into?
  12. Keagan


    http://caldebatecamp.com/7-week-policy/ so ive been looking into this debate camp and I think it looks pretty good. It has some pretty qualified lab leaders so it might be a promising camp for this summer although it is relatively new. Can anyone look into this (who has more knowledge in the college debate community) and tell me what their predictions for how it is going to be for this year. thanks
  13. Hi, I went to UTNIF last year and it really boosted my debte career. Next year I will be a junior and aiming for Nats and going to the TOC. Which debate camps do you guys recommend?

    unt v utnif

    heyyo im about to start deciding which camp i want to go to next summer (if you couldnt tell by the title) and im getting conflicting reccomendations for a lil background, i do national circuit LD (aka p much one person CX if you arent familiar with it) and cx sometimes (not on the nat circ tho) not to toot my own horn or anything but i consider myself a pretty decent k debater?? i almost exclusively only run kritkal/performance affs and the k literally every round (and win off the k, btw) i wanna go to a cx camp rather than an ld camp so i can improve my skills with tha k, b/c if i wanna achieve my LD nat circ goals then i just need to improve my technical skills rather than topic-oriented skills soooooooooooo i was either planning on going to UTNIF for the 2 week skills intensive, or UNT for the K lab* *(assuming in the off chance ill get into K lab (also, i literally know nothing abt UNT so if anyone could educate me on like the likelihood of me being/getting into/how to get into K lab id be greatly appreciative) but the only conflict i have here is the fact i probably wont get into a good lab - ive obviously done CX before (lolz) but my main focus is LD?? (and obvi the LD that i do is literally just policy but) so i feel like i probably wont get into K lab or a good lab at all based on the fact that i most likely have less CX round experience than others (and more LD rounds) plz help

    Debate Camps (UT?)

    Hello everyone! I I signed up for UTNIF in Austin, and was wondering if anyone else was going to this and if they have in past years. If not to UT, then where is everyone else going across the nation? This is my first time attending any debate camp and I was interested in knowing the run down of how they proceed, and what was your experience in one. Thank you! Respectfully, JM
  16. As a rising sophomore, I'm looking into camps. I am a freshman novice right now, and I've done pretty well and somehow ended up with some trophies haha, so i'm looking to get an edge before my first year on Varsity. I'm currently looking into Georgetown, Gonzaga Sophomores, and UNTIF Sophomore Select. My concerns are 1. If Georgetown teaches kritikal topics? Like how to answers K's and how to run K's. 2. If Gonzaga 5 weeks is too long and gets boring/too tiring 3. If UNTIF's location is too hot and not enjoyable 4. If UNTIF is too critically oriented. I'm looking for a solid camp where I can learn both sides (policy and critical) and have a fun time. Thanks! P.S. I'm open to any suggestions but I'd like to not spend TOO much money.
  17. Any supplies besides the obvious (clothes labtop etc) that you regret not taking with you to Debate Camp? I leave Sunday morning at 3 AM for Weber State and am curious as to any last minute things I should buy.
  18. Just want to know who will be attending the 2014 MNDI??? I'm going.
  19. I'm a rising junior and recently found out I got accepted into GDI Scholars. For any of you who have gone in the past, could you all answer some of these questions? I just want to make the most out of my camp experience and i'm super excited to go. Thanks What should i expect about the camp? Should I sign up for the extension week? Full meal plan or partial? Any other tips?
  20. What's the caliber of the kids who attend? I'm thinking of going this summer, but don't know what level the kids who usually go are at. I know they have a lot of very good national teams who attend, but are those the only kids who go? I went to UTNIF LD last year and competed in LD at the beginning of the year on the TFA circuit, but started doing policy around December and have been pretty successful at it, but I'm not a TOC policy debater is what I'm trying to say. I do, though, have a lot of experience with progressive debate. My partner and I run Ks (successfully), I can spread, I have decent amount of experience researching/constructing arguments, etc. I'll be going into my junior year, and I just want to make sure I won't feel "left out" because I'm not a TOC/nationally qualified debater.

    Camp Dilemma

    This summer, I'll be a rising junior and I have a bit of a camp dilemma. I would really like to be in the Berkeley-Gonzaga swing lab, but I would have to miss the first week. I'm also considering DDI, which doesn't start until later in the summer so I wouldn't have to miss any. I know both are pretty good camps, and I just don't know if missing the first week (and still having to pay for it) would be worth it for swing. Any input would be much appreciated.
  22. Hey All, Steven Murray here, Director of Debate at the Digital Debate Camp. We are about to enter our SEVENTH(!) year of camp, and while we believe our program is top notch, we are curious what you as a community are looking for in a camp. We currently offer limitless one-on-one interaction with lab leaders to discuss any subject on your mind. In addition we provide file production advice, we block out times for practice speeches/ redoes, and of course we host a large series of lectures each summer. I for one think our camp is quite good, and I wish it was around when I was in high school and couldn't afford a big 1.5K+ summer institute. That being said, what would a camp like ours need to have for you to sign up? What are you looking for in a camp like ours? If you have thought about joining the Digital Debate Camp but chose not to, why? And if you joined the camp but didn't like it very much, what did you dislike? Finally, if you joined the camp and liked it, what about it did you like and how could we improve upon that in the future? Our camp would not exist without this site and all of the wonderful feedback we have received from it. I greatly look forward to hearing your constructive advice regarding the Digital Debate Camp. Mods: this is an expressly commercial thread, but should not be pruned for 2 reasons. First, I have a standing agreement with cross-x.com which allows me to "advertise" on the site, which includes any means of mentioning or talking about the camp. Second, for every student who pays for camp we have one who doesn't, and getting feedback in threads like this is essential to make sure students who cannot otherwise afford camp are still given the best experience possible. Please PM me before deleting this thread in the event of a problem.

    Since everyone else is posting - what are the conditions at this facility? Any specifics I should bring? Their website says they sell evidence at the end of the week - is it worth buying?
  24. I posted about this before but there have been major updates. So basically GDI 5 week soph is going to cost me 2,000 (that is without the plane ride from Illinois to Spokane but the plane ride will cost about 400). MSU 4 week will cost me 2400 and I will drive there. Which camp is better and which is a better bang for the buck?
