Applications are now being accepted for SUMMA Theological Debate Camp 2022. Join us this summer from July 19-27 on the beautiful campus of the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee.

SUMMA Theological Debate Camp gives students the confidence to speak their truth in love, and to live their faith more deeply. Campers attend theology lectures and seminars led by clergy and university professors that broaden understanding of the Christian faith tradition and its enduring relevance in our lives today. Small groups work to form debate arguments and engage in stimulating discussions that hone skills in research, speaking, listening, and critical thinking. During the end-of-camp tournament, each camper argues both the affirmative and negative positions of a debate resolution.

SUMMA is open to high school students entering grades 9-12 in the fall of 2022. We welcome campers from all backgrounds and faith traditions. The application deadline is May 15, 2022. Tuition is $1,325 and includes room, all meals, and camp materials. A limited number of full and partial scholarships are available for students with demonstrated financial need.
