Nationally recognized speech and debate summer camp with day and overnight programs for middle and high school students.

ISD Difference
Why ISD?

We value:

  • World class senior instructors in every lab
  • A balanced experience of learning and fun
  • Life-long skills over tricks that only win some rounds

We are different, and that’s the way we like it.



Find your voice and develop your skills through programs focusing on each speech and debate event.


Learn from championship level faculty who care as much about you as they do your next round.

Locations - All Online in 2020

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, ISD 2020 will be all online. We can't wait to return to our in-person locations in 2021!
