Due to unforseen administrative challenges, the Georgia Debate Institutes will take a one-year break and will begin anew in 2017.

In the meantime, we are soliciting feedback from coaches and students alike in order to ensure an ever-improving low-cost, high-quality debate camp for students from the state of Georgia and across the Southeast.

If you have any questions about the 2017 GDI, please email georgiadebateinsitutes@gmail.com.

Thank you for your interest - we will see you in 2017!
