Intro Debate Skills

Practise debate skills in a fun and casual setting! Learn the basics of debate: argumentation, rebuttal and speech writing, all of which enhance public speaking skills. This camp supports participants in learning to present their ideas in a confident and convincing manner. Older campers may be asked to conduct minimal research outside of camp time for more engaging debates.

Prerequisites: Participants must be reading and writing at grade level, with fluency and command of the English language.
