The 2013 Training Minds Camp at Regent University

Virginia’s beautiful Regent University welcomed coaches Herche, Wade, Moss and Jeub for five days of speech and debate training. We had quite a few people travel a great distance to make it to Virginia Beach for camp. Check out the great feedback we received, and the awesome pictures!

I learned a lot, and now feel much more prepared for the next year of competition! : ) Great speakers and teachers.

Had a wonderful experience as a mom/coach at Regent University’s TM camp. It warms my heart to see young Christian boys and girls give their time and energy to learning a skill that will last them a lifetime. Thank you to all the staff for enabling this to happen for the next generation of Christian young people.

I learned a lot about critical thinking and analysis in both debate and speech categories. I feel better prepared for the coming debate season after attending Training Minds’ speech and debate camp.

I was extremely pleased with the helpfulness of the staff and the willingness to work with me on getting my camper to and from camp. Really eased my mind about putting my 16 year old on a plane alone for the first time. Also, staff was quick to respond to my questions.

As a mom I enjoyed the camp very much.  It is exciting to see our young people learning to express themselves and communicate effectively with a purpose. Thank you to all the Training Minds staff who work so hard and make it their mission to shepherd these young people. Training Minds Camp made me more confident of myself and of my skills.  Before the camp, I thought Speech and Debate was going to be the hardest thing I was ever going to do.  Afterwards, I found out that it was really a wonderful opportunity and experience. Thank you all that made this camp possible.

This Camp was great! I loved it. I made new friends and and had new experiences. I went into camp having no idea what debate was really like and came out with everything and more that I needed to know to get me started at my first year of Speech and Debate.

When I arrived at camp, I was completely new to speech and debate.  After the week ended, however, I felt like I had a good understanding of all of the basics and even some of the more advanced techniques.  I also met a lot of really unique, fun people and made quite a few great friends.  The coaches were all excellent and very encouraging.  I can’t wait for next year!!

Attending training minds was one of the best experiences I have ever had! It was a week full of learning, fellowship, and growing. Throughout the week I gleaned so many strategies, advice and practical tips from the coaches. I came away from this camp with great friends, an immense  amount of information and tools, and the growing excitement for this season. I can’t say enough about my experience- Definitely worth it!
