  The 3rd Macquarie Debating & Public Speaking Camp will be on 16-19 August 2012 at the Collaroy Centre on Sydney's Northern Beaches.

Camp is three days packed with speaking, learning and fast improving. We've rewritten our program for both debaters and public speakers, with over 3 hours spent developing every 1 hour of content! And as always, the low all-inclusive price means that you spend nothing once you arrive.

We're also incredibly excited to open Camp to students from outside Sydney — we look forward to more diversity and collaboration than ever as Camp continues to grow.

 

Camp is:

RELEVANT
