Creative Writing: 9am-12pm

Campers will create and publish their own books! Campers will work together with the teachers to choose themes and content they are inspired and excited by. The teachers will take students through the planning, writing and editing stages of creating their own narrative story. At the end of the week, the campers will receive digital and print copies of their books!

Creative Arts Drama: 1pm-4pm

In the afternoon, the program helps kids build their confidence, as well as public speaking, leadership, teamwork, and collaboration skills. This session of the camp uses storytelling and role playing, along with activities including solving mysteries and learning to be a detective, through drama and improv games. Each day ends with kids performing for their peers. This camp is especially valuable for those who are timid and reserved!

Debate Camp (Ages 10-14)

The Debate camp is designed in an interactive way, with a focus on developing case construction, refutation and counterpoint skills. This camp inspires kids to speak and debate on point with structure and confidence.  The teacher to camper ratio is 1:8 and our one-week sessions are offered full-day only (half-day options are not available).

The Power of Words Debate Camp provides campers with opportunities to advocate for an idea, form a response, and speak on a point through impromptu public speaking games, debate feuds and formal debate rounds. Kids will gain confidence, build resilience and develop effective collaboration skills.

At our camp, our impromptu and formal debates happen in partnership, normally in teams of four speakers who work together to develop sound cases, predict the opposition’s counterpoints, and brainstorm effective rebuttals. We aim for each camper to participate in two debate rounds daily. Campers will receive constructive feedback after each round, with the intent to advance their delivery and critical thinking skills.

Our goal is to help campers become comfortable speaking before a crowd and learn to clearly express their ideas and information in an well-organized and cohesive manner. This camp is for all aspiring young students, from the shy and reserved to the keen and confident speakers!
