Camp Information

Ad Astra Debate is excited to partner with McPherson College and the Wichita Art Museum to offer students a two-day introduction to policy debate, or speech & drama (forensics). We offer a two-day in-person camp for all students interested in learning more about debate, speech, and drama, that will jumpstart their involvement in effective communication and collaboration. Experienced students will dive into topic research and literature selection for the upcoming competition season. We look forward to having you join us!
