This 5-day Christian faith-based “camp” is designed to prepare middle school and high school students for competitive public speaking, known as forensics. This is ideal for students wishing to compete in speech leagues such as STOA, NCFCA, etc. It also provides a great foundation for those who may never compete but wish to have public speaking practice.
