I made a lot of friends and learned how to debate! I never felt uncomfortable and everyone was really welcoming! I can't wait for next summer!!
This camp made me a better speaker, better person, and a better student. I'm sure I will go into my next year of school better equipped to succeed. The camp also sparked in me the desire to improve my debate skills.
I have enjoyed working with Capitol debate and helping students, learn and grow to find their voice, or simply gaining a love for debate.
Capitol-Debate is the best place a child could be in the summer. Notice changes in her speech, discussions and was talking of taking up career goals in public speaking. Sure way to boost the child's confidence in speaking and interaction.
Capitol debate summer camp if your child is interested in fun learning and wanting to polish their public speaking and debate skills
One of the best learning experiences. I truly had the summer of a lifetime.
It has given me new insights into debating and has set a base for my debating career.
Capitol Debate was an exciting learning experience. Over my two week stay in Baltimore, I made amazing new friends and gathered memories to last a lifetime; all while honing my skills as a debater and establishing a new knowledge of a variety of topics. Capitol Debate taught me new ways to exchange ideas and change my perspective of the world.
Capitol Debate has helped me to succeed in public speaking and debate skills in general. I have become more comfortable in front of a crowd
Before Capitol Debate I didn't have many chances for public speaking, but during it, I was able to work on the flaws I had, like swaying and hand gestures, and improved a lot on my speaking. I now feel much better at talking in front of others confidently and am excited to participate in many activities in high school that require it!
