Capitol Debate Summer CampsCapitol Debate is proud to announce its 40+ Summer Debate Camp locations in the United States this year.
You can count on Capitol Debate to help your child to build communication and critical thinking skills, which leads to better academic performance.
The curricula of our middle school debate camps aim to equip children with the ability to structure arguments, prepare debate cases, research evidence, write rebuttal briefs, deliver speeches and refute opponents.
Not only will Capitol Debate students learn debating skills; they will feel an increase in self-worth, learn critical thinking skills and improve communication with their peers.
Many of our former campers have gone on to participate in national debate tournaments and enroll in prestigious universities (UCLA, Stanford, USC, and Harvard to name a few).
