Debate Camp


Debate Camp provides an engaging, skills-enrichment summer opportunity for students in grades 5 through 10.  In 2020 we are excited to once again bring Debate Camp to Montreal this summer!  We offer a well-loved program in public speaking, parliamentary debate, Model United Nations and general confidence-building for the aspiring young speaker!  Debate Camp is open to all ability-levels and programs are challenge-leveled — with instruction available for novice to competitive speakers. Campers work in small groups to develop their ideas, and speak in partnership as part of 2- and 4-person teams representing their side of the debate resolution (parliamentary style). Young speakers at all levels are generally amazed at their growth and development over 1 week. All instruction and supervision ratios are set at 1:8.

Our daily schedule also includes organized games, impromptu speaking, drama and interactive activities to ensure camp retains a fun and balanced approach to learning. Model United Nations simulations and mini-tournaments complete the week. The feedback we encounter is often on the theme of genuine surprise at just how enjoyable an academic enrichment and skills-development program can be.

Montreal families — join us in 2020! Full details and dates available on our website.
