Debate Association (Singapore) is proud to announce the details of this year’s June Camp for primary school students!
Our June camps are targeted at Primary 4-6 students (aged 10-12), and are divided into 2 camps for beginners and more seasoned debaters respectively:
Camp Ignis (Beginner Camp)
Camp Ignis is an entry level camp targeted at beginners. The camp will cover the basics of debate, including how to set a debate case and formulate new arguments, with ample opportunities to put their newfound skills to work.
Camp Excelsior (Intermediate Camp)
Camp Excelsior is an intermediate camp targeted at more seasoned debaters with relevant competitive experience (at least 2 rounds of debating experience at Wits & Words / Primary School Debate Open). The camp will cover more advanced content, such as how to deal with different motion types and how to craft more sophisticated arguments.
Both camps are an excellent way for students to meet and interact with like-minded peers, while acquiring new skills / honing their existing capabilities.
This year we will also be conducting a 2.5 hour workshop titled "Introduction to Debate for Teachers". The workshop will be held in conjunction with Camp Ignis for beginners, and will focus on (i) the basics of debating; (ii) how to guide debaters in preparing / training for debates; and (iii) how judges evaluate teams during a debate.
