The Moroccan-Youth Debate Camp (MYDC)
International Summer Camp
– August 9th-13th, 2021 – (Online)
The Moroccan Youth Debate Camp has everything you need to go back to school and succeed in MUN, Public Speaking and/or Debate competitions with our 3 years experience in hosting highly successful camps, and the best coaching staff in Morocco! Since 2014, The camp truly has been a life-changing experience for the students who attend. The very first camp was hosted in June of 2014 and has been hosted every summer since then, in Marrakech in 2014 and 2015 and then in Agadir and Casablanca in 2016. The 2020 & 2021 editions will be in online. We accept Moroccan and international students.
The camp focuses on the World Schools Style (WSS) Debate format, Public Speaking, Model United Nations (MUN), Diplomacy and Leadership. Our week-long camp has lectures, exercises, workshops, social activities and a tournament on the last day to put those new skills into action. The camp will also select and reward the top 3 speakers of the tournament and the winner of the debate tournament.
This year, we will have 3 highly successful international coaches and one Moroccan coach. We are proud to announce that all of our trainers have either competed in the World Universities Debating Championship (WUDC) and/or World Schools Debating Championship (WSDC).
