New Jersey – Schooleys Mountain Retreat Center (North Campus)!

Ethos is coming to the gorgeous forests of New Jersey August 13th-15th! Here’s what you need to know:

The Details


 Schooleys Mountain Retreat Center North Campus, 13 Heath Ln, Schooleys Mountain, NJ 07870


Tues-Thurs, August 13th-15th. 9-5 each day. 

How much is it?

$199 per student for a 3-day camp. 

What formats will you be coaching?

LD and TP.

What experience level is this camp intended for?

Everyone! We’ll have multiple coaches there, so we’ll be able to split up novices, intermediate, and advanced. If you’ve never done a debate round before, you should come. If you won nationals last year, you should still come! Everyone has more to learn.

What league will you be coaching?

We’ll be coaching debate. Regardless of what league you compete in, this camp will work for you. However, since our audience is mostly from NCFCA at this camp, we’ll be using cases and examples from the NCFCA resolutions as well as having some breakout sessions to discuss the new resolutions. If enough people are interested, we’ll have breakout sessions for other resolutions.

How old do I have to be before I can attend?

We recommend attendees be above the age of thirteen. See this video for an explanation of why. However, this is more of a guideline than a rule. Email us at ethosdebatecommunications@gmail.com if you’re interested in an exception.

Are there any discounts or scholarships?

There’s a family discount that takes 20% off of your order. It’s only applicable for families purchasing multiple tickets for multiple siblings. Upon checkout, when asked for a discount code, use the code 2019Family.

 Partial and occasionally full scholarships are available for those in true need. Please contact us at ethosdebatecommunications@gmail.com explaining your situation.
