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.
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is one of the most prestigious universities in the United States, and they are opening up their state-of-the art classroom facilities to our Capitol Debate Summer Camp.
Students will stay in suite-style rooms, with two beds and two dressers per bedroom. Students share restroom facilities within each suite.
Capitol Debate is lucky to have Morrison Hall, one of the University’s finest residential halls, all to ourselves for our summer debate camp. Morrison Hall contains lounge areas, a spacious lobby, building-wide air conditioning, and an outdoor basketball court in the rear.
UNC-Chapel Hill offers a diverse selection of food and beverages in their Dining Hall. Asian, Italian, American and other options are available for lunch and dinner, along with a salad bar, sandwich bar, and a variety of beverages, including coffee!
Carolina’s vibrant people and programs attest to the University’s long-standing place among leaders in higher education since it was chartered in 1789 and opened its doors for students in 1795 as the nation’s first public university. Situated in the beautiful college town of Chapel Hill, N.C., UNC has earned a reputation as one of the best universities in the world. Carolina prides itself on a strong, diverse student body, academic opportunities not found anywhere else, and a value unmatched by any public university in the nation.
The University of North Carolina provides on-campus police services, ready to respond at a moment’s notice, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Capitol Debate keeps a registered nurse on staff, housed in the main residential hall, to aid students at any time, day or night. UNC’s nearby on-campus hospital is only a small distance from the central areas of campus.

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.
