SUMMA can be an exhilarating and eye-opening experience for any young person who wants to build their faith intellectually. High school students from across the country gather for one week each summer and learn four spiritually important skills:
- How to think carefully, imaginatively, and fluidly;
- How to express oneself clearly;
- How to explore faith in relation to science, history, and philosophy;
- How to argue lovingly.
In SUMMA, debate is taught because debating leads to clearer and more careful thinking, and clearer thinking opens deeper pathways into faith, hope, and love.
Our next camp session will be July 16–24, 2019. Applications will open in mid-September and will run through June 1, 2019. Please apply soon to avoid being placed on the waitlist. In the meantime, we encourage you to read more about SUMMA, check out our Facebook page, look through our photos, and watch our videos!
