Public Speaking & Debate

Public Speaking

No matter what our kids grow up to become, public speaking is a skill they need. It is the number one fear in our society, but it doesn’t need to be for your camper. Our kids should be proud to share their ideas and be confident in their ability to communicate.

Camp Brainy Bunch Focuses on...

The Individual

Each camper will join us with a different level of comfort and ability. No one can become a master in a week, but each camper can grow in their speaking ability.


We focus on simple delivery skills that, with practice, produce great results. Practice is the key. Our campers start speaking early and often throughout their week with us. We reinforce the areas we are working on each day to gradually add more and more to our speaking tool kit. 

Keeping it Fun

With a supportive camp community, crazy and creative topics, exciting challenges and zany games we make everyday a positive experience. 


The ability to take a side and stand up for it with reasoning and critical thinking. Take a side and stand by it.

Debate teaches campers to think critically and to reason on their viewpoint while learning to see and appreciate the viewpoints of others.

Camp Brainy Bunch Debate is...


Each topic or theme is created and chosen for its appeal to campers. This is why Fairy Tale Mock Trial is our most successful debate camp.

A Team Effort

We work hard to establish a supportive team approach. Everyone has a role and everyone helps each other. Together the team learns their side preparing and practicing together. 

A Little Crazy

Most importantly when teaching this age group, we keep it a little crazy, make it fun, and focus on the experience.
