    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
