The three general camp formats are public speaking, debate, and writing. In each camp, students will debate and discuss themes ranging from current events to social concerns. Students are encouraged to think critically about the changing world around them and confidently express their viewpoints. Popular and unique course offerings include: TED Talk, beginner-friendly Novice Argumentation camps, content-based Economics & Science debate, interview-focused Pathways Programs, Journalistic & Creative Writing, and Academic Research and Essay Writing. We’re also proud to announce a newly-developed experience entitled “The Art of Decision Making,” diving into the complex ethical and rational processes behind making choices.

Classes range from 2.5 to 3 hours each, and maximize student speaking and feedback opportunities. In each and every class, students will participate in impromptu speaking exercises, strategy/concept discussions, applied-learning activities, and a debate or speech performance. Each class ends with a student reflection. If your goal is to improve confidence, critical thinking, and communication skills, there is surely something here for you.
