Summer at BDL
Every summer, before the start of the next debate season, the Boston Debate League hosts a series of summer learning communities for debaters, coaches, and teachers through our Debate Camp, Summer Coach Camp, and Grad Class. Join us this summer to learn a new skill, identify strategies to foster an engaged debate team or deepen your insights and reflections about your own practice – all while having a little fun! Register and learn more about each opportunity below.
The Boston Debate League’s Grad Class offers a weeklong course where teachers will learn to use a variety of debate-like activities to foster student engagement. As part of an interdisciplinary mix of upper elementary to high school educators, teachers will step into the role of learner, debrief your experiences as educators, and collaborate in learning communities within and across content and disciplines.

The Boston Debate League’s Coach Crash Course provides debate coaches who were unable to attend the Summer Coach Camp an opportunity to prepare for the upcoming debate season, build their debate knowledge and coaching skills, and be in a learning community with other amazing debate coaches.
