Campers will have fun learning public speaking techniques, improvisation and performing skits. They will learn valuable skills that will teach them ways to be a leader in their community. The camp will culminate with a celebration and presentation for family and friends. Check out one of our 2nd grade camper’s compelling speech below.
Public speaking has been rated the worst fear in adults. Why? Because most adults never had the chance to learn the skills and build their confidence when they were young. Prepare your elementary-age child now for junior high, high school and beyond. Effective leadership and communication are the #1 skills for success in life.
Camper to coach ratio is 4:1! We believe in individually supporting each camper’s growth.
