Debate Summer Camp – Half Day Afternoon
Monday, July 4 - Friday, August 26$250
Debate Camp (Ages 10 – 14)
The Debate camp is designed in an interactive way, with a focus on developing case construction, refutation and counterpoint skills. This camp inspires kids to debate on point with structure and confidence. The teacher-to-camper ratio is 1:6.
The Power of Words Debate Camp provides campers with opportunities to advocate for an idea, form a response, and speak on a point through impromptu public speaking games, debate feuds and formal debate rounds. Kids will gain confidence, build resilience and develop effective collaboration skills.
At our camp, our impromptu and formal debates happen in partnership, normally in teams of four speakers who work together to develop sound cases, predict the opposition’s counterpoints, and brainstorm effective rebuttals. We aim for each camper to participate in two debate rounds daily. Campers will receive constructive feedback after each round, with the intent to advance their delivery and critical thinking skills.
Our goal is to help campers become comfortable speaking before a crowd and learn to clearly express their ideas and information in an well-organized and cohesive manner. This camp is for all aspiring young students, from the shy and reserved to the keen and confident speakers.
Cost: $250 per week (Monday to Friday 1:00PM to 4:00PM)
