For sixth- through 10th-grade students new to speech and debate, the Paly Debate Team offers a week-long summer "speech and debate camp."
The camp runs this summer from Aug. 8 through Aug. 12, with a focus on public speaking in the morning and on debate in the afternoon.
The cost for one session (morning or afternoon) is $295. For both sessions, the cost is $495. Non-residents of Palo Alto will have to pay a $25 supplemental-insurance fee because of city regulations.
"While we plan the curriculum and daily programs so that each day would be fruitful to our students, there are substantial goals for each of them at the end of the camp," said Paly sophomore Julia Lee, a camp organizer.
"The speech students will prepare a speech and present it to their peer-and-parent audience, and the debate students will engage in actual debate rounds with each other," Lee said.
The camp is in its seventh year. Last year, with a capacity of 60 students, it was sold out.
