CSDF Debate Camp

The Canadian Student Debating Federation will be hosting a debate camp, which will be organized by Brian Casey and John Robinson, to be modeled after the very successful camp that was run at Sacred Heart in Halifax for many years. This camp will be especially of interest to those able to commute to Toronto French School each day. However, the camp is often to everyone, and accommodation can be arranged at Glendon College in the dorms. Debate Camp registration is now open!

The dates are Monday, August 14 to Friday, August 18, with the 13th and 19th being travel days if you are coming in from out of town.

As well, the event will effectively run in parallel with the annual CSDF National Seminar. Therefore, OSDU will select students to attend under the Seminar banner. Information will be provided to OSDU schools soon so that students may apply, subject to various restrictions that aim to make the Seminar have a wider representation of participants. This would be a full week programme, with a slightly different schedule, and funding model. More info will be posted later.

In the meantime, you can find information about Debate Camp, including the form invite, schedule, fees, etc. located here: https://csdf-fcde.ca/debate-camp/
