One of the best learning experiences. I truly had the summer of a lifetime.
Capitol debate builds the whole child : independent living, social skills development and academic strengthening
I think Capitol Debate has helped me gain the skills and experience that I need to be a successful teacher in the future. It has allowed me to teach children something I am passionate about and see that passion passed on to the next generation.
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!
Allowing your child to attend this camp is life changing in a very good way!
This camp was really fun to be at, and I would enjoy coming back next summer. The staff was really nice
My time at capitol debate was incredible, and the quality of teaching and fun was the reason I came back.
In the beginning of camp, I thought that Capital Debate would succeed as being one of the low-points of my summer. However, I was completely wrong. Capitol Debate turned out to be one of the highlights of my summer. I would definitely come back next year, and I would encourage anyone to come.
I had a great time at Capitol debate! At first I was hesitant to go because I thought it would be all debate. However, even though there were hard times, at the end I found myself quietly crying because I had to leave.
The camp is run by very professional staff and seems carefully organized to provide teenagers with a perfect blend of fun and academic challenge, with long-lasting impact. Their peers were amazing kids and the counselors are truly dedicated.
