My daughter enjoyed the camp as it provided instructions and activities during the day to build a strong foundation for debate and had tons of fun activities in the evening!!
This camp improved my argumentation and speaking technique significantly and had a great impact on me as a developing debater. This was the best debate camp experience of my life compared to others. I definitely found my voice!
Debate camp really changed my life. It turned my endless rambling into quality speech and overall made me just that much better of a person.
The middle school camp was an excellent introduction to debate. The staff, programming, and college campus facilities were top notch. As a parent, I also appreciated the great ethnic and geographic diversity of the students.
It has given me new insights into debating and has set a base for my debating career.
Capitol debate has helped me find my voice in the world and has had me complete my personal goal while stretching far and beyond what my goal was. The staff there was awesome and the lectures made a lot of sense, and they gave us some pretty good advice for the debates. I know I've made some life time friends and hope to see them next year. It was an awesome year! Thanks Capitol Debate!
My time at capitol debate was incredible, and the quality of teaching and fun was the reason I came back.
Teenagers are naturally looking for opportunities to be heard. Give them the skills to think critically and debate coherently, so they can learn to think for themselves and argue for their own rights. Since we are not involved in any debate club or team during the school year, doing a camp like this is desirable.
The environment at camp is welcoming and you will certainly feel at home here in Capitol Debate.
Capitol Debate Camp has helped me to become a more articulated and confident speaker. It taught me valuable skills that will benefit me throughout further education, and future careers.
