"Going into NITOC 2013, I was definitely nervous for the challenge ahead of me. But then I learned of NITC—the amazing coaching, feedback, and debate drills (including the wonderful atmosphere of it all) made me feel completely ready and equipped! Everyone at Training Minds is so nice and welcoming, and I can’t wait to come back next year."

Your Coaching Staff


NITOC is a group effort of many people, primarily the coaches who run the camp. They take off work days to pull the group together and make for a wonderful experience preparing for NITOC.

Financially, your camp fees pay for coaches travel, their housing, and the various expenses incurred in making this event happen. Camp finances are handled by Training Minds Ministry, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
