The Our Kids review of Cornell International Summer Debate Camp


Debate is undergoing something of a resurgence in popularly with young people, and delightfully so. There are some great skills associated with it, including communication and higher order thinking, though kids like it for the best reason of all: it’s fun. The Cornell camp, it perhaps goes without saying, is truly world-class, hosted on the stunning campus of a storied, ivy-leauge university. For the kids that attend it can be an eye opener in all sorts of ways, particularly through engaging with peers from around the world who all share some core academic aspirations. The surrounding community of Ithaca itself has a lot to offer, including the vibrant, delightfully quirky downtown and the gorges beyond. The camp, for some families, provides an opportunity to take a family summer trip, with the kids going to debate camp with the adults explore the area, including the nearby Corning Glass Museum, Watkins Glen, and the Finger Lakes. Certainly there’s a lot to love, the Cornell campus and staff foremost among them. The debate camps are, for those that attend, a window onto a wider world, with the university setting providing an important element of that.
