Campus Information

Capitol Debate is pleased to offer California State University, Fullerton as one of our three California locations.

The beautiful, 236-acre campus at California State University, Fullerton set in north Orange County is a major university with a main campus, a picturesque 26-acre Arboretum and student residence halls.

We are excited that we have our own separate and contained camp location at CSU Fullerton! All the amenities are within 200 yards of each other including the apartments, classrooms and dining facilities. Having a specific portion of the campus helps us ensure that we can maintain the high standards of safety that we demand at our camps.

Residential campers at CSU Fullerton will hosted at student housing next to the beautiful Fullerton Arboretum. The new apartment style dorms will offer the following amenities:

  • smoke-free environment’
  • electronic key card access
  • air conditioned rooms
  • laundry facilities
  • a convenience store

The residential students will be staying in an apartment style dorm. Each apartment has 4 bedrooms, kitchen with full-size refrigerator, 2 full bathrooms (so each student only needs to share with one other student) and a large family room. Within the apartment, each child will have their own bedroom.

All campers will enjoy meals together at the beautiful CSUF dining room and have access to a convenience store, conveniently located in the quad!
