The camp offers personalized and intensive study for nearly 100 junior and senior high students. “The purpose of the camp is to give the students a step up and give them an edge over their competitors and teach them what we know,” said Judy Woodring, former director of the forensic program.
Students from Kentucky and seven other states are attending the camp to learn and improve their speech and debate skills. This year’s students are from Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Missouri, New York, Texas and Virginia as well as from 29 cities in Kentucky.
The staff, made up of current and former team members as well as former and current coaches, helps the students “cover both ends of the spectrum when it comes to forensics,” said Jace Lux, who assumed the role of forensics director on July 1.
This year’s camp is a bit different than past years with activities scheduled from Sunday to Sunday instead of Sunday to Friday. “We thought that by making our camps a bit longer and not really increasing the price, we would be able to stay competitive with other camps,” Lux said.
