SCHOOL PROGRAMS

Customized Debate Camp that works for your school and / or enrichment group of 6+ students!

DEBATE CAMP:

 

Debate Camp provides academic enrichment programming in the areas of debate and public speaking. Since 2002, we have provided in-person summer (day & overnight camps)  and school year co-curricular programs throughout Canada and the Northeastern United States; serving approximately

1500 students annually.


As parliamentary debate lends itself well to a 1:6 or 1:8 online format, we have, since April 2020, curated several online multi-level debate, public speaking and Model UN programs. Each has been refined over an 14-week period via the attendance of approximately 850 students from throughout Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States and beyond.
