Discourse Debate Online Summer Camp


Aug 17, 2020 to Aug 21, 2020

This event occurs weekly, on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.


Discourse is a debate camp in Toronto (online for 2020) for students entering grades 8 to 12. Discourse has run since 2011 and helped 150 students enhance their debate skills, and learn analytical and communication skills to last a lifetime.

The camp is limited to 18 students. Discourse will run from August 17-21, 2020 online via videoconferencing software because of COVID-19. 

Discourse is taught by Shakir Rahim who coached debate at top Ontario schools for over a decade and is a two-time winner of the World Individual Debating and Public Speaking Championships. He is now a practicing lawyer focused on litigation and continues to run Discourse Debate Camp during the summer. His debate coaching clients included the University of Toronto Schools, Branksome Hall, and St. Andrew’s College. Shakir also privately coached Canadian and American students for debate competitions from the local to global level. In 2013, he completed a six-month project teaching debate in Queenstown, South Africa.
