Capitol debate is like a triple layered cake. Every time you thought you've thought you have seen the best, you see something better.
Debate Camp at the University of Dallas was great! The cohort of students learned a lot and watching the progression of their speaking and research development growth was a delight to experience. Overall, lots of fun times and memories!
The advent of the debate experience reaches it's zenith only under a Capitol debate experience, making experienced learning, street smart instinct, and Debate brinkmanship achievable under capable leadership.
I learned so much from this debate camp! If you are just starting out or an experienced highschool debater, this camp is just right. The lectures are, and the labs are a great time to interact with new people. The free time had just the right amount of time, and we are given an abundance of time to work on our case.
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.
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!
The best camp you could ever ask for, ranging from education to fun, you will NOT want to go home!
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
I have improved so much from the beginning of this camp to the end of this camp. As I was talking to my parents on the phone, they too noticed a massive difference. In one of our conversations they asked, "who are you? Its like you're a new person!" This was because after this camp, I was eager to research and learn about many topics.
Capitol debate is more than just a debate camp, it is a summer camp that actually engages with the children, challenging them mentally to go beyond what they have already inquired.
