Capitol Debate has taught me a lot, and gave me the voice to make a difference in my life, other individuals lives, and my family's life. Thank you for giving me the tools to make an impact to all those around me.
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!
It was an amazing experience that I haven't had before coming to this camp and I am grateful that I came and wish (hope) that I come again to maybe pickup new things or just learn to be better.
It is worth it to give the kids a try and to have them experience the new camp, it will benefit them a lot and they will love it. My daughter loves it so much and she did learn something new to her which helps her a lot when she starts to get into high school this year. Because they can learn not only debate skills, but they built up great relationships with the coaches and other students.
Capitol Debate changed my life! I learned so much about debate and met many new friends! It was the greatest camp ever!
This is a great opportunity to have your child enhance his/her English skills, learn how to compose an essay and research a topic while still having fun. It is also a great way to improve public speaking.
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.
Capitol Debate helped me since last year, and this year. I have learned so much, learning how to speak well, learning how to write cases well, and learning to be a team. I want to have a shoutout to Victor, as he is the greatest person!
Capitol Debate was an amazing thing for me to experience. In only two weeks, I learned and improved so much and found a new family. The practice debates were intense and the feeling of passion I felt when debating is something that I want to remember forever. I'll never forget the time I spent with everyone and I look forward to my new-found interest!
Capitol Debate has taught me how to strengthen my arguments in essays and persuasive papers. They also helped me learn to have a stronger voice in the community. Great camp
