What's Included

The Ohio University Summer Forensics Camp, sponsored by the Ohio University Forensics Program and the School of Communication Studies, will be held on the campus of Ohio University, Athens, OH. Our Camp will offer instruction and practice in: • Limited Preparation • International Extemp • US Extemp • Impromptu • Oral Interpretation • Duo Interpretation • Humorous Interpretation • Dramatic Interpretation • Prose/Poetry Manuscript Reading • Public Address • Original Oratory • Oratorical Interpretation • Declamation • Debate - PF, LD & Student Congress PHILOSOPHY The emphasis of the camp is on teaching both novice and experienced students the skills and theory necessary to successfully participate in interscholastic speech activities. While many camps send students home with a single polished product, we send students home with a process they can use to make all of their performances polished. ELIGIBILITY Students are eligible for the camp if they have completed the 8th grade. SCHEDULE Campers arrive Sunday afternoon. Workshops and classes meet throughout the day, starting at 8:00 a.m., Monday through Friday. Practice and individual coaching sessions continue during the evenings. The week concludes with a camp tournament and showcase Saturday morning. FACILITIES The camp offers a carefully supervised introduction to college life. Students live in university residence halls, eat in a campus dining center, and attend workshop sessions and lectures in university buildings. Campers will also have access to the OU Libraries, internet computer labs as well as OU recreational facilities. The structure, opportunities, and adult supervision available at OU make the OU Summer Forensics Camp an excellent choice. AIRPORT PICK-UP/DROP-OFF We are pleased to offer pick-up/drop-off service from the Columbus airport at the cost of $30 each way. Campers should play to arrive at the Columbus Airport no later than 2:00 pm on Sunday, July 8th. Campers should schedule
