MIDDLE SCHOOL DEBATE CAMP
For boys & girls entering grades 7 & 8
June 25 - June 29 • 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Enter the fun world of academic debate! Learn to speak in public, formulate arguments, find evidence, and refute opposing views. Each day we focus on a different controversial issue in the news. You will be given one-on-one instruction as you prepare your cases. Then you practice debating against other students and receive feedback on your performance in each round. The camp concludes with a tournament. The camp is led by US Coach Peter Paik, who is assisted by current and former members of the award-winning US Speech & Debate team.
