• A Message to our Capitol Debate Community

    As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) impacts our families and communities, we'd like to reassure everyone that your family's health and safety remain our top priority. Our thoughts go out to all of our families that are going through difficult times. Capitol Debate is committed to providing you with information and support as we respond to the evolving novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

    We are working very closely with our University partners to receive the most up-to-date information. If a camp does cancel, we are promptly notifying families. Our dedicated team continues to prepare for this camp and fulfill our mission of providing an unforgettable educational and personal growth experience for every one of our campers.

    Due to the uncertainty of potential University cancellations, we understand some of our families’ desire to cancel their current 2020 summer camp registrations due to COVID-19. If you would like to cancel now before we officially cancel camp, we are committed to leaving our families whole. We’re offering the following options to achieve that goal

    • Transfer to one of our 150 Virtual Summer Camp sessions: We have been running Online Debate and Public Speaking programs for 8 years and are experienced in delivering our full program in digital format. To learn more about our Virtual camps, click here. Note that the online programs have a lower tuition than our in-person camps, and you will receive a full credit for the difference.
    • Receive 100% credit + 5% extra back to your Capitol Debate account to use for any Capitol Debate Camp or Program: If you decide to cancel your 2020 summer camp registration and not transfer to a virtual or alternative on-campus location, then we’ll provide you with 105% of your tuition as a credit back to your Capitol Debate account for any Capitol Debate program, including summer camp, online programs, and private tutoring. You can use this credit for up to two years and even transfer it to a sibling or a friend.
  • Here are our terms and conditions. We have liberalized our timetable to receive credit back to your Capitol Debate account to use for future programs.

    Modified Camp cancellation credit timetable for 2020 Summer Camps. All other terms remain the same.
    • Two weeks before program start | 105% credit back to your Capitol Debate Account
    • Within two weeks before program start | 50% credit back to your Capitol Debate Account
    • 24 Hours before program start | 0% credit
  • During this time of uncertainty and perpetual change, we have been tremendously encouraged by how our community has come together to support and help each other. We are so grateful to receive such heartfelt messages of support. We deeply appreciate your understanding as we work together to navigate COVID-19 and we look forward to continuing to deliver the highest-quality programs to your child. Please don’t hesitate to be in touch if you have any questions
