Wheeler Summer has partnered with Debate Camp to provide a one-week program this summer.
Debate Camp provides one-week summer camp programs in Public Speaking, Debating and Model United Nations for students eager for new ideas and a boost in their skills, confidence, and ability with the spoken word!
Debate Camp aims to bring young people together for meaningful intellectual discourse. We believe that debating, public speaking, knowing about the wider world – are important skills for this generation.
Debate Camp creates a learning experience that is safe, welcoming, fun, and intellectually-engaging. Our program is meant to appeal to all ability levels, from the reluctant speaker to the already-accomplished debater.
We believe that learning is best served by engaging students in an academic experience, while at the same time ensuring they feel empowered to take risks.
We believe that “camp” creates a novel and secure learning environment in which campers feel safe to try new skills, think on their feet, see the opposing view, and to trust their teammates.
