Ethos Chicago:


What’s happening in Chicago?

This summer, Ethos is kickstarting both NCFCA Team Policy and Lincoln Douglas in Chicago. We’re working with both experienced and novice debaters. It doesn’t matter if you’re a lingual maestro or know nothing: there’s something for everybody! Here’s what you need to know:


August 7th-11th


9:00 AM – 4:00 PM


We’ll be working with Team Policy and Lincoln Douglas debaters of all experience levels. Whether novice or national-class, Ethos will work with you. We’ll be focusing on examples from both the NCFCA TP and LD resolutions.


We’re still finalizing who will be coaching at every specific camp. However, know you will be getting national-class coaching. The new guard here at Ethos has had a hand in training some of the best competitors in Stoa and NCFCA as well as helping novice and intermediate competitors achieve their goals. Your instruction will be world-class. Check out our team page for more info.


Arlington Heights, IL. Facility address coming soon.


BYOL. Go ahead and pack a sack lunch or gather some friends and order pizza!

Why would I come to Chicago?

We believe that excellence doesn’t come through shortcuts and winning the talent lottery. Rather, excellence is fostered and grown through constant effort and discipline. If you’re interested in obtaining the tools necessary to foster excellence, then come on down.

Boring Details:


Ethos will refund 75% of the registration fee if a student cancels prior to July 20th. After that, there are no refunds. If there’s a serious emergency, we will flex as much as possible.


Partial and occasionally full scholarships are available for those in true need. Please email to explain your need.


Parents and coaches always attend Ethos camps at no charge. If there is interest, we will have a parent-focused breakout session. Dozens of parents have learned to debate at Ethos camps.
