    What a debate and speech camp has to offer

    In a debate and speech camp, your child will learn effective skills and techniques. While some camps focus primarily on debate or public speech, most camps teach these together, since they focus on similar sets of skills. You'll find bothsummer and winter debate and speech camps.

    Nevertheless, there are some distinct skills your child will acquire from each kind of camp. In a debate camp, your child will learn and develop the following kinds of knowledge and skills:

    • The structure of debate
    • Different types of debate (such as parliamentary, policy, and Socratic debates)
    • Debating rules and etiquette
    • Researching topics
    • Staking and defending a position
    • Use of arguments, logic, and reasoning
    • How to address an opponent’s claim or argument
    • Refutation and counterpoints

    • Projecting and modulating one’s voice
    • Organizing and structuring a speech
    • Delivery strategies
    • Use of transitions
    • Playing to an audience
    • Use of emotional techniques

They may also have the opportunity to compete in competitions, in Canada, the US, or overseas.

    These camps teach your child practical and theoretical skills that can allow them to excel in and outside of school. They also, though, have some less obvious benefits. For instance, they can help your child become more well-rounded and healthier, by improving their
