Camp Schedule

What do ChatterCampers do all day?

We pack their schedule full of fun activities and public speaking games. All the public speaking sessions are fully interactive, so that the kids don't feel they're in a classroom. In most cases, they won't even realise that they're being taught something!

Every year we choose a new theme for the kids to focus on throughout their speeches. This year's theme is AIM HIGH!
