Local middle and high school students are invited to attend our in-person Debate and Public Speaking Summer Camp! Lunch is included — in our campus cafeteria and/or to go. Spend five days with us, and you will:
- Hone your public speaking and analytical skills with certified instruction and coaching.
- Learn presentation and critical skills that will help you become a more outspoken and confident student in the classroom.
- Acquire debate and forensic (public speaking) fundamentals, including instruction and the development of persuasive, informative, declamation, single and duo interpretive, prose, poetry, after-dinner, impromptu, extemporaneous, and parliamentary debate speaking.
- Enjoy working with our award-winning collegiate team!
Best of all, leave with the confidence and ability to present yourself and your ideas in any public situation.
This experience observes all COVID-19 safety practices, including wearing masks in classrooms. We spend mornings in the classroom, auditorium, and computer lab, and afternoons practicing outdoors. Every 50 minutes, we break for handwashing, sanitizing, and a short recess.
- Register by May 15 and get a free camp T-shirt!
