Capitol Debate offers summer camps and yearlong online debate programs focused on building students’ communication and critical thinking skills, thus leading to better academic performance at school and opening up career opportunities in their future.
Their summer camp programs include Business Communication Camps, STEM Communication Camps, and Public Speaking and Debate Camps. Through Capitol Debate’s Communication and Debate programs, participants become prepared to give outstanding speeches in classes, excel in interviews, and express themselves confidently in their daily lives.
Not only will Capitol Debate campers and students learn communications skills; they will feel an increase in self-worth, work on critical thinking skills, and improve communication with their peers. Many of Capitol Debate’s 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).
Capitol Debate offers various camp dates at more than 35 locations for the 2019 Summer Season, with international camps in Singapore.
Camp representatives from Capitol Debate will be in attendance at the March 9 Camp Fair at UCLA to meet you and answer your questions about their program. Attending the Camp Fair is a great way to discuss and learn about all the various summer program opportunities for your kids this summer. Free tickets are available here. Capitol Debate has a camp program located on the campus of UCLA, so their attendance at the Camp Fair is a perfect match.
Many families we speak with are looking for a religious-based summer camp. Camp Wise is a fun and active Jewish summer day camp at Stephen Wise Temple in Bel Air where preschool through 7th grade campers enjoy swimming in the camp's on-site pool, sports in their gym, and specialty activities such as art, science, cooking, music, and more.
Campers in 1st through 7th grades have weekly field trips, and everyone enjoys special programs such as carnivals, weekly themes and dress-up days, not to mention Rockin' Shabbats!
If a Jewish summer camp interests you, contact Camp Wise for more information for meet their representatives in person at upcoming L.A. Summer Camp Fairs in March and April
The Camp is located at 540 South Commonwealth Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90020. If you'd like more information, you can meet Camp Super Duper staff and learn about the program at the upcoming March 10 L.A. Camp Fair in Los Feliz where Camp Super Duper and many more camps will be exhibiting their programs.
We're big fans of the YMCA. The "Y" does such great things for kids, and their summer camp programs are no exceptions.
The Culver Palms Family YMCA runs a summer day camp families in the Culver City part of L.A. should check out.
Some of the coolest camps around (in our opinion, anyway! :) are robotics camps for kids. The provide some of the most engaging and educational (not to mention fun!) experiences around.
Rolling Robots, right here in L.A., is one such program for kids ages 5 to 14. It's a Robotics and STEM Summer Camp that offers a wide range of camps, such as Rolling Robots Classic - Robots Rock, Lego Mindstorms (All-time Favorite), VEX IQ and VEX Building & Coding (Getting competition ready), Battle Robots Building, Minecraft 1.0, Digital Design and MOD (Java Coding) - for all Minecraft kids, APP Development, Scratch Coding and Junior Robot Coders.
When we look at summer camps, we always consider the supervision ratio as part of our review. Rolling Robots' 6:1 camper-to-staff ratio sounds pretty good to us!
Rolling Robots' first day of camp for the 2019 season is June 10. They operate 9am to 4pm with half-day, full-day, after-care options. Learn more about this program at RollingRobots.com.
