Debate Camp at the University of Dallas was great! The cohort of students learned a lot and watching the progression of their speaking and research development growth was a delight to experience. Overall, lots of fun times and memories!
Capitol debate let me develop my skills in not only the debate we were working with, but hollistically and to the point where I flourished in all sorts of events!
I didn't realize how much I would miss this camp until I left on the last day. Truly amazing. Everything. I learned so much from this camp, and not just about debate. The instructors were dedicated and fun. I made so, so many friends here. I learned how to work with others, to communicate effectively, and so much more. This camp was a valuable experience.
Our instructor was awesome, we had so many inside jokes that it became kind of a problem. Overall, we just had a really nice time.
I met a lot of really cool people, made friends, and had a lot of fun. I definitely grew not only as a debater but also as a person in this camp.
