This debate camp will give your kid the skill set to advocate for themselves for the rest of their life. They will also make close friends. Meg loved everything she learned but mostly she loved feeling apart of something bigger than herself. She loved the instructors and friends.
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!
I found myself enjoying Capitol Debate a lot more than I thought I would. The people there were great and I'd love to see them again, and I felt that I really grew as a debater and a speaker. I definitely think that I improved with this camp, and I think that anyone who attends it will improve as well.
Teenagers are naturally looking for opportunities to be heard. Give them the skills to think critically and debate coherently, so they can learn to think for themselves and argue for their own rights. Since we are not involved in any debate club or team during the school year, doing a camp like this is desirable.
I came, not a very good speaker but with the help of my instructors and newly made friends, i learned to become more confident speaking in front of others.
Capitol Debate has made me feel more comfortable speaking and debating, and I learned to be more confident as well as think faster on my feet.
My daughter enjoyed the camp as it provided instructions and activities during the day to build a strong foundation for debate and had tons of fun activities in the evening!!
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.
I would tell them that Capitol Debate offers a wonderful camp that could change there outlook on life .
