Express Yourself at The Practice Space: Summer Camps in Richmond, CA

Hey friends! With summer just around the corner, we're gearing up for one of our favorite times of the year: summer camp season! This means our office will soon buzz with the sound of young people expressing themselves and having a blast in our public speaking-themed summer camp programs. It's a time when creativity flourishes, confidence grows, and new skills are honed.

Young Speakers Camp: Where Fun Meets Learning!

Our Young Speakers Camp for kids ages 7-11 is a journey of discovery, creativity, and connection. We take expression seriously in this program, but we also love finding ways to make it fun!

Imagine your child exploring the many ways they can share their voice with the world. From storytelling to skits, advocacy speeches to playful debates on fun topics, our campers find joy in expressing themselves. Just check out this snippet from last year's Young Speakers Camp, where our campers debated a very important topic in a Congress debate. It was full of spirited discussion, laughter, and teamwork.


But it's not just about speaking—it's about forming bonds and building confidence in a nurturing environment. Lead Coach Maribel ensures that each child feels supported and encouraged every step of the way.

Program Details:

  • Dates: June 24-28, 2024
  • Time: 10am-2pm PST

For those ready to dive deeper into how expression connects with leadership skills, we also offer a full-day add-on option called "Leadership Time" from 2pm-5pm PST for an enhanced full day experience.

Teen Speech & Debate Camp: Elevate Your Voice!

Our Teen Speech & Debate Camp is a low-cost, high-quality debate camp that serves both experienced debaters and newbies. Teens aged 12-18 will refine their public speaking and debating skills in a supportive, engaging environment. Led by expert coaches Joel Jacobs and AnnMarie Baines, campers prepare for competitive speech and debate events while building confidence and forming lasting friendships.

Our goal is to build community in a way that helps teens prepare for competitive speech and debate spaces, make friends, and learn how to express themselves. The camp culminates in a fun Camp Tournament where students can showcase their skills and growth for each other, their families, and community members. Fun fact: two camp alumni have won the parliamentary debate Tournament of Champions!
