Summer Camp Experience
Not only will Capitol Debate students learn debating skills through our programs; they will feel an increase in self-worth, learn critical thinking skills and improve public speaking and communication skills with their peers. Two weeks at camp will result in lifelong friendships and memories that will resonate with our students throughout their academic, personal and professional careers.
Campers return to our program year after year because of how life-changing our Summer Debate Camps prove to be. Our parents will tell you themselves that they proudly stand by their investment in Capitol Debate because of the impact it has had on their families. We invite you to join us this summer to take part in this life-changing experience.
Drew University is a private university located in Madison, New Jersey, in the United States. Drew has been nicknamed the “University in the Forest” because of the serenity of its beautiful wooded 186-acre campus in a thriving small town close to New York City. Like Capitol Debate, Drew University is dedicated to exceptional faculty mentorship, a commitment to connecting the campus with the community and a focus on experiential learning. Drew University is home to Nobel Prize Winners and several international semester programs.
Capitol Debate is happy to be at Drew University to bring its third debate camp into the state of New Jersey. The popularity of our camps in this area has been unequaled and we are sure that campers will thoroughly enjoy our Public Forum Debate Camp at the beautiful Drew University.

Fun Outing Field Trip | 5th Day of Camp
About one-third of the way through camp students will have the opportunity to enjoy a trip off campus. This is an excellent opportunity for students to connect with their peers and counselors outside of the walls of the school. Students will have a chance to take this trip at their own pace since there’s something for everyone.
