    We're revampingPlease visit our programs for 2013 to make them even better!
    The Debate Institute at Dartmouth features flexible 1 to 6 week programs between July 7, 2013 and August 17, 2013.
    The backbone of our program is the 4 week DDI, now in its 30th year of producing nationally successful debaters. The 2013 DDI is tentatively scheduled for July 14 - August 10. Dates will be confirmed by the end of December.
    Unlike other camps, you work all of the teaching staff in a comprehensive elective system where you choose what you learn.
    Unlike other camps, we teach you the skills to research, to debate, and to work like a team so you can win during the year. We won't just give you the same blocks you can get for free on the NDCA
    new website - instead, we'll teach you how to evolve arguments to win throughout the year.
    Unlike other camps, we won't take false credit for your record. We do know a few things about winning - and most importantly - coaching teams to win.
    As a staff, we have won and coached
    - over 70 first rounds - including several #1 Copeland winners
    - over 65 NDT Top 20 speakers - including several top speakers
    - over 70 NDT elimination participating teams - including several champions
    - over 50 CEDA top 20 speaker awards - including several top speakers
    - over 30 TOC elimination participating teams - including champions
    - and over a dozen NFL elimination participating teams and top speakers
    - over a dozen NDCA elimination participating teams and top speakers
    Read what previous DDI Attendees said
    "Without attending the Dartmouth Debate Institute I would have never been able to prosper as a debater. I feel as if the DDI really transformed my perception of debate and opened myself up to a community full of intellect. DDI is filled with instructors who want to teach you, people who love debate and a general environment of wanting to do well. The DDI taught me how to formulate good arguments into great ones and taught me great researching skills. "
    - Priyanka Krishnamurthy, Coppell High School (TX)
    “With a collaborative working environment, and an individual skills centered approach, DDI provided me with the opportunity to grow exponentially for my last year of debate. My ability to spend commensurate time with a variety of instructors who actually cared about my personal success as a debater and person gave me multiple perspectives and indispensable insight. Moreover, in addition to sixteen guaranteed debates, DDI offers a unique, season style tournament with eight preliminary rounds. The tournament acts as an amazing launching point into the season by replicating the structure, competition, and atmosphere of prestigious national tournaments during the year. Even before the tournament and beneficial practice debates, I had the opportunity to do rebuttal redo’s every night as lab leaders were always stationed nearby. I would be blatantly lying if I said four weeks of thought provoking lab discussions, intensive research, and multiple competitive lab debates did not contribute to my win column this season. DDI not only helped me craft my own debating style, it helped me craft my lifestyle. ”
    - Sullivan McCormick, Jesuit College Prep (TX)
    "Dartmouth is amazing - I've never been to a camp that allowed me to work so closely with my lab leaders, and gave me an opportunity to have a one-on-one conversation with each and every instructor. It sounds cheesy, but I think having such a personal relationship with the staff created the best and most open learning environment possible. The confluence of perspectives on debate that meets at the DDI taught me flexibility, without ideological baggage. I wouldn't trade my summer there for anywhere else."
    - Vinay Pai, College Prep School (CA)
    "The Dartmouth Debate Institute is an amazing debate experience. Instead of focusing on pure evidence production, it provides electives and lab discussions that focus on the aspects of debate that the students are interested in. So, you learn how to find evidence and, most importantly, you also learn how to use that evidence. Every single person at the camp is very smart, very friendly, and very willing to help a student with any request. Learning a lot and having fun is inevitable for any debater
    at any level or of any type. After going to 3 other institutes, there is no doubt that Dartmouth is the best."
