I've found two solutions to this.

1) (setq calendar-setup (quote calendar-only)) makes the calendar appear in a 
new frame. However, their are weird side effects and the mini-buffer used to 
enter the date/time is in another frame, and not the one where the capture was 



(defun kdm/position-calendar-buffer (buffer alist)
  (display-buffer-at-bottom buffer alist))

(add-to-list 'display-buffer-alist (cons "\\*Calendar\\*" (cons 
#'kdm/position-calendar-buffer nil)))

Splits the window in 3, so I have 1) capture template 2) original text and 3)
