Speech and Debate Camp 2020

HOW DOES ONLINE CAMP WORK?

 

You will experience camp as it happens--live with our staff and other students. We don't dump a video online and then have you ask us questions over chat. You can ask questions just like in an in-person class. You can talk with other students including in breakout/team rooms. It all happens _live_.

Have a Question? Email Jim Hanson at jim@climbthemountain.us

 

You will join us in Zoom.

 

You'll see our instructor and other students at the camp.

We are ready to help. We've worked with 25 online tournaments and dozens of afterschool programs sessions online. We know the most common problems and we have solutions. We can't guarantee we'll fix everything but we have knowledge and we'll work to help you.
