This is my third year attending a Capitol Debate summer camp, and yet again, I had an amazing experience. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot!
It's a great camp for kids to learn how to be independent and be responsible. My son had a great time at the debate camp, he not only learned a lot but also made a lot of friends! Kids can have both fun and learn how to debate at the same time.
I don't think about people judging me anymore, I feel like I've become more open. For example I don't mind going up and signing horribly for a crowd anymore. Who cares what they think as long as I'm having fun. I understand that now.
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.
My time at capitol debate was incredible, and the quality of teaching and fun was the reason I came back.
This debate camp has made me confident, and helped me hone on my debate skills. I effectively learned how to structure a persuasive piece of writing and deliver it eloquently.
Capitol Debate was my first debate experience and I think it provided a great gateway to my future debate career. The activities were great, the community was great, the material was great, the residential provisions were great, everything was solid in general. 10/10 would go again.
One of the best learning experiences. I truly had the summer of a lifetime.
I have enjoyed working with Capitol debate and helping students, learn and grow to find their voice, or simply gaining a love for debate.
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.
