Parliamentary Intensive Practice Round Session

The idea behind the Parliamentary Four Week program is simple in concept, profound in effect. Debaters improve most by debating - especially when challenged by an experienced critic in a stop-and-go format, after which students redo rebuttals and receive extensive feedback. The Three Week Program is fully integrated with the Two Week program, but adds an additional week which focuses primarily on technique, practice rounds, and small group work sessions. The Three Week Program engages in the kind of beginning of the season preparation enjoyed by the most competitive high school squads- but with our superb staff, a great student to staff ratio of 6:1 or better and a diverse peer group. Students are guaranteed to get at least 18 fully critiqued practice rounds in just one week, as well as multiple small group argument work sessions a diverse group of theory and topic seminars. The program is staffed by some of the top instructors from the Two Week SNFI camp, in addition to top-notch guest instructors.

Third Week Only Option: To participate in the Third Week only Program, students must either attend the Stanford Two Week Program or attend another Parliamentary camp of sufficient rigor earlier during the summer. Students planning to attend another camp earlier in the summer should contact our office to determine eligibility.
