The sponsoring teams are members of the Dogwood Forensic League, the National Association of Speech and Debate (NASD), and the National Catholic Forensic League, though TDL is not directly affiliated with either of those teams or organizations.

Appalachian Institute for Creative Learning

In 2001, the camp formally reorganized itself as a non-profit organization under the name “The Appalachian Institute for Creative Learning.” As well as being able to pursue grant and scholarship money with the non-profit status, the new name reflected a different emphasis. There are many programs now that serve gifted children. But AICL is not merely a pre-college academic booster shot. Instead, what AICL does is to create an environment in which it’s safe to laugh and learn, to risk and fail, to experiment with something outside of one’s competence.
