Capitol Debate is proud to introduce our robust Virtual Summer Camps. We were a pioneer back in 2012 in launching the first national online educational platform to teach public speaking and debate. Since then, thousands of students have crossed our screens and have gone on to be successful public speakers and debaters.
Both in response to the current situation with COVID-19 and the trend toward virtual education, Capitol Debate is fully prepared to offer summer camps virtually. With 8 years of extensive online teaching experience, we have coached many national debate champions and seen amazing transformations in students' confidence and presentation skills.
You video chat people so you can see your instructor. You can see how they are interacting with you. It's like a face to face interaction just over the web.
Like most parents, I was skeptical about how interactive this medium would be. But I do see that it has brought a tremendous amount of positive change to my son's life.
My son loves it; he enjoys it; he gets a lot out of it. I've seen him grow in his character and his confidence.
They have excellent teachers, and they have an excellent staff who are really are invested in the growth of these kids.
It's taught me to be so much of a better debater. You can do practice debates online; you can do speeches online; you can do anything you would normally do at a debate practice online.
These online classes have met and exceeded my expectations. I was a bit hesitant because I come from a generation where we meet in the classroom, and we drive and get together. But the kids are so collaborative online, I don't think they are missing a beat.
