Capitol Debate gave me the opportunity to utilize my skills and embrace my passion. I want to spread the beauty that debate has to as many individuals as possible and Capitol Debate is a great environment for that.
Capitol Debate made my summer way better than it's been. I loved learning debate with enthusiastic teachers and good friends. I will be back every year and maybe try different locations.
Capitol Debate is a wonderful place to learn about debate and make new friends. The staff is wonderful and helpful. This place has really made me smile. I met people from all over the state and some from neighboring states. I was happy to be here with both old friends and new friends.
Staff will do what it takes to provide a great experience for the campers.
The students that are adamant in coming, will find themselves empowered when they learn what they can do with their voice.
Capitol-Debate is the best place a child could be in the summer. Notice changes in her speech, discussions and was talking of taking up career goals in public speaking. Sure way to boost the child's confidence in speaking and interaction.
Capitol Debate is more than just a summer camp and debate program; it's a family. I love Capitol because it builds a community of driven, intelligent students that want to use their voice to effectuate change in any field they choose to pursue. 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.
As a rather shy student, my experience had made a strong me... I had learned a lot about debating and public speaking. Now, I feel more comfortable speaking in front of large and small groups of people.
This debate camp will give your kid the skill set to advocate for themselves for the rest of their life. They will also make close friends. Meg loved everything she learned but mostly she loved feeling apart of something bigger than herself. She loved the instructors and friends.
As a teacher in a public school, you get to teach a wide variety of students with varying interests and various intelligence. Unfortunately, being “smart” is not “cool” which is short-sighted and naive. At Capitol, it’s embraced and encouraged by the campers and the staff. We need more intelligent, educated young people
