When I arrived at Capitol Debate, I didn't know how to debate. By the end of the camp, not only did I learn to do this, but I also learned how to speak in front of many people AND I made so many friends. Thank you Capitol for an amazing summer! I am definitely coming back next year!
I had a blast this year at camp. I came in with very high standards because I had already been here last year and like I said before, these high standards were met and even exceeded. Thank you so much for this great life changing experience.
We would say that the camp combines learning, working on speaking skills, camaraderie and fun very well. I would say highly organized and impactful two weeks.
The students that are adamant in coming, will find themselves empowered when they learn what they can do with their voice.
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.
At Capitol Debate Seton Hall, I was included and I wasn't left out. So many people there were kind and they took chances on strangers. It taught me to take a chance on strangers, to befriend as many people as I can, even if I'm in a competitive environment. It taught me to never let my negative judgements decide who I should befriend and who I should ignore.
The camp is run by very professional staff and seems carefully organized to provide teenagers with a perfect blend of fun and academic challenge, with long-lasting impact. Their peers were amazing kids and the counselors are truly dedicated.
It was a great experience for beginner debaters, and it really helped to improve not only my research skills, but my public speaking and confidence as well. I am very grateful for Capitol Debate for doing this!
This is my third year attending a Capitol Debate summer camp, and yet again, I had an amazing experience. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot!
It is a really fun summer camp, kids can learn some interesting topics that school education does not offer. Very good experience!
