The Power of Debate - Elementary Level (Rising 3rd - 6th grade)


Win your arguments with the power of your mind and logic. Debate is exciting, empowering and fun. Youth Debate Camp makes learning to debate fun while you grow as a confident public speaker, critical thinker, and collaborative teammate. Each day we will focus on different skills relevant to debate, using games, activities and age appropriate topics to teach debaters to make and respond to arguments in an upbeat, positive environment, with an emphasis on learning to consider both sides of any topic or issue. On the last day there will be a Debate Match, where you showcase what you’ve learned by preparing to argue both sides of the session’s resolution in teams, often in front of a volunteer judge.
