Democracy Bootcamp is a professional learning conference for elementary and secondary school teachers designed to improve their capacity to deliver democratic engagement exercises and strengthen their commitment to civic education. In September of 2015, over 470 teachers gathered in Edmonton and Calgary and took part in a full day of learning about the importance of voter engagement and instruction techniques for their students so that teachers could pass their knowledge on.
