As Ohio's best and one of the nation's top-20 public universities, Ohio State has a physical presence throughout the state, with campuses and research centers located around Ohio.
Dorms:Students attending our Ohio State University have the opportunity to commute to camp daily, or stay right on campus in the dorms. Our students will be tentatively staying in the Smith-Steeb Residence Hall featuring several student lounges and workspaces, making for a fun and collaborative space for learners.
Dining: The OSU Kennedy traditional dining hall provides the full range of great-tasting, wholesome, comfort food craved by students, with a touch of buckeye inspiration to nourish the minds of tomorrow. Plus, the OSU Solutions station is exclusively dedicated to students with vegetarian/vegan preferences and gluten-free or other dietary restrictions.
Not only will Capitol Debate students learn new 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.

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.
Capitol debate builds the whole child : independent living, social skills development and academic strengthening
This program helps students to ponder about current important issues today. My son, Daniel already recommended two of his best friends at school to join in the debate camp.
Capitol Debate has made me feel more comfortable speaking and debating, and I learned to be more confident as well as think faster on my feet.
This camp teaches our kids the valuable skills of debate fostering critical thinking and self-confidence and within a supportive and fun group of peers.
This camp improved my argumentation and speaking technique significantly and had a great impact on me as a developing debater. This was the best debate camp experience of my life compared to others. I definitely found my voice!
I think that the camp was a great experience and I made some new friends while I was there.
Capitol-Debate is the best place a child could be in the summer. Notice changes in her speech, discussions and was talking of taking up career goals in public speaking. Sure way to boost the child's confidence in speaking and interaction.
Capitol debate is more than just a debate camp, it is a summer camp that actually engages with the children, challenging them mentally to go beyond what they have already inquired.
It was an amazing experience that I haven't had before coming to this camp and I am grateful that I came and wish (hope) that I come again to maybe pickup new things or just learn to be better.
Capitol Debate is an amazing place to make new friends and have fun as well as developing new skills that really make an impact on the way you debate. This is definitely a place that I would want to come back to next year.
