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.

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.
