This debate camp has made me confident, and helped me hone on my debate skills. I effectively learned how to structure a persuasive piece of writing and deliver it eloquently.
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.
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!!
I came back to this camp again and this time it was just as good or better than last year. Also, my lab leader was extremely inspirational and made learning fun and enjoyable. I'll be walking away with lots of information and inside jokes. CRUSH THEIR DREAMS!!!
When I arrived at Capitol Debate, I didn't know how to debate. By the end of the camp, not only did I learn to do this, but I also learned how to speak in front of many people AND I made so many friends. Thank you Capitol for an amazing summer! I am definitely coming back next year!
In a mere two weeks, Capitol Debate taught me skills that could be used for a lifetime. In addition, they improved my (nonexistent) speaking skills and boosted my confidence. I've never had so much fun in my life.
