Training Minds Camps have been running nationwide since 2001. We have a strong history of testimonials. Here are some...

Training Minds Camp gave me the opportunity to begin a familiarity with what this year could look like according to the resolution. I am now able to “recognize” my case options and am excited to “observe” what ideas people will come up with for cases for electronic surveillance year!

The coaches were always there to help and coach one-on-one outside of lectures and their teaching was much enjoyed by all of the students involved. I highly recommend this great camp!
—Ryan Kelly Murphy, California
Ranked 1st Place Champion in 2015, Stoa's highest ranking competitor (see here)

Training Minds camp was an amazing opportunity to grow my skills in a competitive forensics setting. All of the coaches did an excellent job equipping us for the competition season ahead. I feel like I can go head to head with top debate teams because of the unique quality of instruction I received at camp.

Training Minds Camp EXCEEDED our expectations. Coaches were focused, motivated to teach, very knowledgeable, experienced men and women after God’s own heart...I loved that no time was wasted. My only regret is that we hadn’t sent our student sooner.

Camp will give you the tools you need to continue excelling all year long.

Thanks so much for having the camp! Camp provides a great atmosphere for different leagues to be around each other, and for competitors to get to know one another in a more laid back atmosphere.

I couldn’t believe how helpful the coach’s were in answering questions and sharing their experiences. I really appreciated the one on one time in particular and found it to be invaluable.
