The Lincoln Douglas lab at GMDI is treated as one lab with smaller break-out groups during the session. Campers applying are able to choose Lincoln Douglas as their lab section, and are placed into a specific skill level working group based on a diagnostic that we perform on day one of camp.
Lincoln Douglas campers enter the camp provided a starter file packet that is produced by the camp staff. The packet includes a starter affirmative and negative case and important blocks for the beginning of the topic.
Campers use these cases for the debates that occur on the first several days of the camp, and are expected to have their own cases and blocks written for the camp tournaments at the end of each week.
