Debate Camp

ONLINE WITH THE WORLD

NEW SESSIONS  2:30PM to 4:30PM - APRIL 12 - 16. 2021

Introducing an opportunity to develop valued skills in Parliamentary Debate and meet your peers from throughout North America.

 

Welcome UK Debate Campers!

PROGRAM OVERVIEW
UK Online Debate Camp
 

 

DEBATE EDUCATION:  For today's youth, skills in parliamentary debate help to develop critical thinking, advocacy, listening to alternate points of view and speaking well.  Debate Camp has been engaged in this since 2002 - and will now offer our program to small groups of online participants

• parliamentary debate technique                         

• skills in organization of thought

• skills in case construction                                 

• persuasive, confident speaking

• skills in refutation and argument re-building

INTERACTIVE WORKSHOPS:  Online debate workshops are designed in a fun, interactive way. Participants develop debate skills via opportunities to work together, share thinking and debate twice in each session.

TEAMWORK:  Online participants co-develop cases, debate as a team and receive feedback together; often as a side - pointing out strengths of argumentation and delivery.  

 

SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT:  Our online program is a supportive place, with lots of encouragement available for those who are trying new things.  Participants are coached to honour what is being said by their opponents and welcome the efforts of others, even in competition.   

ABILITY LEVELS: All online debate partnerships and speakers opposite are grouped at an experience level that ensures the right level of challenge:

 

OPEN        • brand new to debate

                  • typical year 5 to year 7

                  • possible reluctant speaker

PLUS         • familiar with debate

                  • typical year 6 to year to 8

                  • less reluctant speaker

LEVEL-UP  • experienced with debate

                   • typical year 9 to year 11

                   • accomplished speaker

Online level groups are similar to all Debate Camps and open to adjustment post-registration to ensure program comfort and fit.  Campers enrolling in multiple camps are welcome to try higher levels.
