Debate Camp

  • Day Camp, Overnight Camp
  • Co-ed
  • 1 Week



Debate Camp has provided summer programming in debate, public speaking and Model United Nations simulation since 2002. Built by experienced educators, we believe in providing an academic enrichment opportunity to youth across Canada and the Northeastern United States via a set of exceptionally well-organized, safe and accredited summer camps. At Debate Camp, we provide a fun and inspiring space for youth to develop some timelessly-important skills; to hear opposing views and to confidently articulate their ideas well in the company of others.  Debate Camp specializes in parliamentary debate, impromptu and prepared public speaking. As well, we teach and conduct a popular 1 day Model United Nations simulation at all of our camps. We ensure that all program areas are fun, engaging and suited to a variety of age groups (grades 5 to 10) and multiple ability levels. In 2024, we will hold our US overnight camp at Bowdoin College from July 21 to July 27.
