I went into this camp really apprehensive, and I came out really liking what I learned. This camp was my beginning step into the world of public forum, and it made me realize just how fun and challenging debate was.
Relationships, experiences, values, skills, challenges - are life lessons that stay with your teen forever. My kids had amazing FUN. They made tons of friends which are long-lasting. They gained skills for a lifetime.
I would say, that I highly recommend debate camp because the kids work hard and play hard and that is what summer camp is all about. My son loved it! He met good friends and they are all planning on coming back.
Allowing your child to attend this camp is life changing in a very good way!
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!
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.
Not only is the debate experience exceptional, the community of self-aware, intelligent teens instilled an optimistic hope for my generation.
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.
I think that Capitol Debate has helped me be a better public speaker and learn more about PF debate. My favorite part was the gym nights and relay races because I got to know other people better. I am definitely coming back next year.
