COMMITTED TO STUDENT GROWTH

Our Camps

Our goal is to help young people find their voice in a world that often tells them to just listen. By implementing various activities, our students are able to formulate how they want to be perceived as a strong and confident speaker.  Classes consist of working on speaking drills, activities, and training for specific events. These events can be used to compete at competitions, but they will also be used to helped develop general speaking skills. These events help build confidence while presenting, research skills, persuasive speaking, writing skills, logic & reasoning, analytical thinking, and knowledge of current events. 

Our camp curriculum is created so that students are learning different material each week. Students are encouraged to attend multiple camps in order to get a wider range of experience in different events and skill sets.
