Capitol Debate fosters the building of communication, analytical, and research skills; but most of all, Capitol provides students with friendships and a community that they will cherish forever.
It is a big investment, but with sure return. Because our son thrives on learning, and this camp gives him that. It is a great program - your kids get to learn the gist of debate and how to approach it. Expressing your opinion is one of the most important skills to survive this society, and this program gives the opportunity to hone the skill.
I was amazed by the amount of knowledge my son gained during the two-week camp. This was his first experience of learning and actually practicing debate, and I think now he has solid knowledge of what a public forum debate is and how to search for evidence to support his argument.
Capitol Debate offers kids just the right amount of fun and academics at camp! My daughter Natalie Gonzalez, loved everything about the camp.
I had a great time at Capitol debate! At first I was hesitant to go because I thought it would be all debate. However, even though there were hard times, at the end I found myself quietly crying because I had to leave.
