  • Captain Hook vs. Peter Pan

  • Little Red Riding Hood

  • Cinderella vs. The Stepmother

Session 2 Case Load: *

See you in Court!

both sessions not available at all locations.


CAMP PROJECTS

mock trial camp
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.


ACADEMIC THEMES


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.
