I have gone to ISD for 3 summers and cherished every minute. Through Beyond Resolved I have heard horror stories from other camps about competitive toxicity but I could never relate because ISD encouraged a sense of camaraderie. Although debate is inherently competitive, ISD made it about the relationships and invaluable lessons we learned, which is why I will always recommend ISD. Not only did I grow as a speaker at ISD, I grew as a person, a leader, and an activist.
