Capitol Debate has just the right amount of fun and learning; even class can be entertaining and it is filled with education and debates. The teachers are very thorough and the residential staff members are caring and fun.
From the point of view of a parent I would strongly suggest Capitol Debate as a definite option.
Staff will do what it takes to provide a great experience for the campers.
I don't do very well away from home. I was very skeptical about coming to camp, yet I am a returning camper. This camp is just amazing. I learned so so much. My instructor this year, Doug Miller, was so amazing. I have been debating for three years, yet I learned new things that I had never even heard of. I can tell you that I improved by a lot at the end of this camp experience and what I learned will definitely stick with me forever. All my worries about debating in a high school debate league have definitely been reduced. But it wasn't only class that changed me. This camp is just filled with such amazing people that you can go to at any time. The instructors also teach us so much. Finally, Victor is just amazing. He cares about all of his staff and students and wants the best for us. He basically never sleeps to answer calls from parents and help students. He loves his job and it is definitely reflected in the way that he will stay up all night if you need help and if you are having a problem, he actually acts on it and fixes it. This camp was amazing and I definitely recommend it.
More than any other camp I have been at, the bonds that were made at UNC Chapel Hill this year were the most obvious. It was impossible for me not to cry at the closing ceremony because of how close we had all become.
The best camp you could ever ask for, ranging from education to fun, you will NOT want to go home!
I love Capitol debate. It is such a great opportunity to learn more and meet new people.
We have two boys who attended camp for several years and have not only had a blast but come home each time as better men. They are growing up before our eyes and have gained confidence, independence, communication & writing skills and a love for debating. They work hard & play hard. They have lots of freedom in a safe environment and have maintained several friendships outside of camp. The various extracurricular activities (sports, movies and field trips) make for a nice balance & provided them with the break they needed.
This camp was really fun to be at, and I would enjoy coming back next summer. The staff was really nice
OMG!!! I thought I would be worried about my daughter going to the camp for her first time sleeping away but I did not worry at all. The staff is amazing and took great care of my daughter. They build relationships with the students while teaching them so much.
