Take the stand! Win the case! Where a crocodile costume… wait… what?
Public speaking is an essential skill for lifelong success. Camp Brainy Bunch workshops are full of creative and engaging ways to learn and practice speaking in front of groups. Fairy Tale Mock Trial takes our techniques to a new level of hilarious learning with classic characters, costumed drama, and passionate speeches to defend or accuse.
This summer we take on the toughest cases yet:
Sessions 1 Case Load:
Captain Hook vs. Peter Pan
Little Red Riding Hood
Cinderella vs. The Stepmother
Session 2 Case Load: *
Pigs vs. Wolf
Village (Belle’s Father) vs. Beast
Jack vs. the Giant
See you in Court!
both sessions not available at all locations.
Costumed Court Trials - Campers divided into teams of prosecution and defense. Guided by our stellar staff, teams read through adapted stories, identify legal arguments for their side, assign roles, and develop their case. They practice critical reading, argument development, and questioning from each perspective to prepare for trial. Campers get fully into character with costumes and props, and then the real fun begins.
Public Speaking, Delivery - An absolutely essential skill set. The best approach to building comfort and confidence in public speaking starts with quality instruction and is further developed with regular practice and exposure. Start building these skills early, then keep it going and growing. Check out our summer programs beyond Camp Brainy Bunch at Stanford, UC Berkeley, and other top schools at educationunlimited.com
Debate/Argumentation - Campers prepare their arguments through questioning techniques, case research and preparation, and team debates.
Due Process - A necessary part of Mock Trial is to learn the basics of our legal system. Although our court is in the fairy tale realm it is amazingly close to the American legal system.
Critical Reading - The key to winning each case is to understand the details of the story. Our instructors and counselors help legal teams to pull out important information from each story and help campers to practice critical reading skills.
