"Debaters Den" should be "Debater's Den".

Debaters'-- the apostrophe goes after the 's' when the noun is plural.

I know. I didn't think it would be plural though; it works both ways.

That's what I mean. When it denotes ownership by one person or thing the apostrophe goes before the 's'. When it denotes ownership by multiple persons or things it goes after the 's'.

Not quite. Debaters' den would be used to denote a missing s, so it would be debaterses den. Since the word isn't a plural it becomes redundant.
