YES - overnight camp is in beautiful Nova Scotia, Canada. We can help you get here!
Debate Camp strives to make it easy to come to camp. While our day camps appear in many neighbourhoods across North America, our legendary overnight camp requires air travel for most. We do our very best to make this easy for parents and their flying debaters.
