THE ART OF SPEAKING EXPERIENCE
The leadership skill most often visible is the ability to speak in public and articulate ideas and messages. The Art of Speaking Experience is new for the 2019 summer and it is designed for both the beginner and advanced level student. Campers will have the option to choose from four separate tracks where they can focus on their specific area. We will offer a week-long track of: Debate, Mock Trial, and Model UN. If your camper is not sure what path best suits his/her interest, we also have the Stand & Deliver track which is a sampler of Debate, Mock Trial and Model UN. Whether helping younger students decide on an area of focus or helping a current high school team member hone his/her skills, this camp will no doubt provide all participant with the skills needed to hit their desired goals. Through cross collaboration, campers will walk away with sampling from every track and experience one big, fun, week of shared energy.
