Monument Camps

Intensive Discovery & Practice for Success in Competition and in Life

Monument-led camps offer a unique opportunity for hands-on learning. Speech and debate students spend time with other young Christians and learn the steps and techniques that lead to speech and debate success. They also can practice their communication skills in front of peers and coaches and receive feedback.

Camps are designed to be valuable for students who are new to speech and debate as well as those who already have some competition experience. Ages 12 to 18 are welcome and parents can attend for free. Camps vary from 3 – 6 days long.

Camps are usually sponsored by a Stoa or NCFCA club but are often open to members of other clubs in the area. The organization and focus of the camps are customized to the sponsoring club’s requests, and that information will be included in the description of each scheduled camp. Campers receive workbooks customized to the camp’s curriculum, which they can keep for further study at home.
