  1. I'm a freshman, to be sophomore, and am looking into camp for this summer. My partner and I have run USFG plan text policy affs all season, in JV/Novice, since this is our first year in policy, but we are hoping to run a K Aff next year and we do currently run Ks on the neg. So, I've been hearing a lot of mixed opinions on this, and am curious as to which one is better: GDI 5 week sophomores or 4 week varsity? Better as in lab leaders, content, expectations, lectures, competition, etc. My partner is going to 4 week, and I'll most likely go to that one as well since 5 week is probably filled up, but I'd still love to hear everyone's opinions. Thanks!!
  2. anyone going? Have gone? Any tips or things we need to bring not on the list?
  3. Hey so I'm going into my JV year and I need help choosing a camp: SDI 4 week or Gonzaga 5 week soph (no other suggestions please). I have been accepted into both, it's now just a matter of scheduling/paying for it. A little about me: Pretty good record this year (finals of Illinois states and 4th speaker there), I really enjoy kritiks on the neg (I am the 2N) but my partner is not comfortable with running anything but policy affs meaning we will probably be flex next year, pretty serious about doing well in debate (plan to actually pay attention in camp), UDL debater, plan to get a job to pay for a really good 6week/7 week camp next year Gonzaga 5 week soph is about 3,200 and has offered me 1,000 off - meaning I still have to pay about 2,000. I financially cannot afford this and have sent a letter with tax returns asking for more aid; my coach (Kevin Hirn) will send them a letter of rec for merit. Now, as for SDI 4 week they have not told me how much money they will be giving me but the original cost is 3900. I hope to be in the top lab. Question 1: How much does SDI give? Which camp is worth the cost more/where will I be getting a better bang for my buck? Now Gonzaga fits my schedule much better than SDI as I have something to do in August for school that's mandatory and it ends in the last days of July. SDI ends August 5th (still fine for what I have to do after). Question 2: I'm wondering if the 5 week will give me much more knowledge than the 4 week (considering lab leaders)? Now I live in Illinois meaning the cheapest round flight to Gonzaga i found is $540. I will probably hitch a ride w/ a family member to Michigan or take a bus which will most definitely be cheaper. 3: What is better for the travel? I have also heard that the content of SDI and the lab leaders is much better than Gonzaga. Final thoughts, which one do you recommend? Describe your experience if you went to either.
  4. 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?
  5. I'm going to be a sophomore next year, and I would really like to go to the Gonzaga 5-Week Sophomores Program, as it seems very cheap and high quality. I know it's pretty early to be talking about this, but the GDI website says that "This lab will fill up quickly so we highly encourage you to apply early!" so I'm not sure when the best time to apply would be. Also, what qualifications will I need to be accepted? Do I need to have just general success, or do I need to have won a certain amount of tournaments, or something similar? Thanks
