Welcome to Cameron's 42nd Forensics Institute

On behalf of the Department of Communication and the Cameron University Forensics team, let me extend the warmest of welcomes to you.  We are so excited that you will be joining us for the 42nd Annual Forensics Institute at Cameron University.  In the last 40 + years, thousands of campers have come through our doors, and leave fully prepared for the upcoming debate and forensics season.  Our staff are hard at work to make your Cameron Forensics experience rewarding, fun, and educational.  

Our staff are experienced and successful in their field, and most have dedicated their lives to help students like you hone your interpretation, presentation, and debate skills.  Check out our Camp Staff page for updates and information on our 2016 staff.

For those of you who are returning to camp this year, we are so glad to have you back! We would love to hear about the success you have had this previous academic year.  Please email us at forensics@cameron.edu and let us know your success stories! We would love to highlight some of those on the camp website!  

The Cameron Forensics Institute is open to all junior high and high school students who are interested in: Individual Events, Public Forum Debate, Cross Examination Debate, Lincoln Douglas debate and Congress.  As in years past, we will offer the same excellence in instruction, an ample amount of practice rounds, and provide small staff to camper ratios.  When comparing Speech and Debate camps this summer,  you will be hard pressed to find a camp that offers a more affordable experience.  In addition to keeping with the strong tradition of excellence provided at camp, I do want to highlight some changes and additions for camp this year:

  • 1 combined week of camp this year the week of July 10th-15th  and will offer multiple divisions across all sessions.  Enrollment is on a first come/first serve basis, and dorm rooms will fill up quickly.  Enroll today to reserve your spot this summer.
  • An Early Bird registration discount is available to all attendees who register and pay their deposit by June 3rd of 2016!  
  • Two convenient ways to register: (a) Mail in your registration and payment (b) contact us to pay by credit card and register online

Please browse the website...you will find camp schedules, information packets, links to register and upload forms, menus, campus maps, staff information, etc.  If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us.  

We look forward to hosting you at Cameron's 42nd Forensics Institute this summer.
