CDS to Host One Week of Canada's Debate Camp: June 17-21

We are excited to announce that Canada’s public speaking and debating camp, Debate Camp 2024, for students in Grades 5-10 is holding a one-week camp program at CDS this summer from June 17-21. Run by experienced educators, Debate Camp directors believe in providing an academic enrichment opportunity to youth across Canada and the Northeastern United States via a set of exceptionally well-organized, safe and accredited summer camps. Debate Camp believes in a well-balanced program where an academic focus is combined with opportunities for traditional camp games, and a fun and inspiring approach to learning.
This day camp, which runs from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM Monday-Friday, will offer students multi-level instruction in parliamentary debate, public speaking, debating and Model United Nations simulation skills. Now in its 22nd year operating in Ontario, Debate Camp includes CDS graduate and World Individual Public Speaking and Debating Champion, Natalie Ganzhorn ’16, among its notable alumni. Natalie attended the camp to hone her skills while in Middle School, and today is both an actress and debate coach.
According to CDS’s veteran Debating Coach, Kerstin Wyndham-West, “This camp offers students an incredible overview of a variety of speaking disciplines. I encourage students who wish to improve their skills to take advantage of this amazing opportunity.”
Debate Camp will be run entirely separate from CDS Summer Camp, yet on our campus for only the one week. More information may be found on their website and registration is here.
Any questions or requests for additional information, should be directed to the Debate Camp staff:

Land Acknowledgment

CDS wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. For thousands of years, these have been the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also recognize the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee peoples who also shared this land.  CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for these lands and waters for future generations.
