2021 BAUDL Summer Camp Signup

This summer, BAUDL is proud to announce we have entered a strategic alliance with the Los Angeles Metro Debate League and Silicon Valley Urban Debate League to form the California Alliance of Urban Debate Leagues. This cooperative has come together to host our second fully online Summer Debate Camp!

Seminars, lectures, and labs will be combined between our leagues giving students the opportunity to work with and compete against peers from all over the state.

Camp is July 26th to July 31 for high school and July 27th to July 31st for middle school. We are now accepting registrants, please continue reading below for details.

Students grade 6-12th are welcome to attend!

BAUDL Julia Burke Debate Inst. is "West Coast Champs Debate Institute"

To reflect the cooperative effort of this year's camp, the JBDI will be renamed to "West Coast Champs Debate Institute." Camp is open to any student who has joined or is interested in joining the debate team at a participating league's school. We are adapting our schedule and style to account for the unavoidable changes and interruptions that students will face between now and the end of camp. Students should not feel discouraged from attending where they can, even if they cannot be connected for all of the events offered.

We have been working hard to produce a schedule that balances rigor, competition, but also the health and mental well-being of your students. We understand that our normal 10 hour a day camp schedule simply will not translate to online, and have distilled the schedule to focus on the most fundamental lessons necessary to be competitive in this new world of online debating. So far, we've created a daily schedule of events that includes: lectures, labs, and independent learning for debaters in attendance. If you have ideas for what might make camp more engaging or fun, we are flexible and open to any and all suggestions.
All students who plan to participate need to fill out this registration form:

I’m wondering if BAUDL is engaging in the dynamics of the first presidential debate of the 2020 election. How do the tactics compare to BAUDL practices or other debate practices?
I was wondering whether any of the members of this club held any political debates recently.
As a former judge, I just wanted to say, "Happy Holidays!" I learned so much by the club's debates on the Merida Initiative: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%A9rida_Initiative Guess what's in the news from the White House this morning!!
