This is a wonderful program that introduces the fundamentals of debate and an excellent camp for younger students to get the away from home experience. Program is well run and the staff is super!
My daughter had a blast! She loves debate, so having an opportunity to have a ton of fun while learning more about debate was a perfect combination. Staying on campus was a great experience for her. She matured even more in those 2 weeks. She seemed like a true college student when we picked her up.
This camp is educational and also fun. Kids learn/train skills by professionals. My son is more confident in speaking publicly.
I think Capitol Debate gave my son insight into what debate is like and let him try it out to see if it is something he is interested in pursuing.
Capitol Debate makes learning engaging and fun, which is the best of both worlds!
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.
For the past 2 weeks, I've felt at home. Not only have I learned how to express my opinions without hurting others, but I have gained so many friends through so many great experiences at this camp. I will definitely remember summer 2016 for the rest of my life, it's been great!
I've improved on being a better debater, and being more patient with peers. This is a camp that would be recommended to anyone, because it fits all levels of debate!
