Join us in idyllic Plymouth Notch, Vermont for the first annual Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation Homeschool Debate Camp. Plymouth Notch is the birthplace and childhood home of America’s thirtieth president. It is here that Calvin Coolidge took the Oath of Office in 1923, in a ceremony administered by his father, a Notary Public.
This unique historical setting is an ideal place for homeschool debaters to come for top-quality debate instruction and an opportunity to win college scholarship prize money.
