SuperCamp QUANTUM U
For college-aged students
Prepare for academic success and an exceptional college experience
College demands are different from high school. They can be fragmented, very intense, and sometimes overwhelming. Students may experience crowded lecture halls, unstructured schedules, and courses requiring hours of attention, study and homework. The pace is fast and a typical day, if there is such a thing, can include classes, library time, friends, work, and maybe even a workout.
Eight days at Quantum U helps students to succeed by providing the learning and life skills necessary to handle the challenges of college life. Students learn to manage all areas of their independence—personal and academic—and take full advantage of the exciting opportunities of their college years. Quantum U positions students to enjoy an exceptional college experience.
At Quantum U we sharpen students’ skills in several key academic and personal areas that are critical to success in college. We address these areas in the context of real-life college situations and expectations. Here are some of the key topics we cover:
San Marcos, CA (north of San Diego)
Dorm Life. Students share rooms in the university dormitories. Breakfast is at 7:30 AM and the day ends shortly after 10PM with a closing gathering. The student-to-staff ratio is at least four-to-one. Team leaders live in the same residence halls as their students, providing 24-hour guidance.
Safety. For 35 years SuperCamp has provided a safe, secure environment. Students remain on campus at all times. On day one, we assign them to teams of 10 to 12 campers with a team mentor. The nature of our team-building exercises guarantees that your child will immediately feel supported by the team mentor and will quickly form close bonds with other campers. We have a trained wellness person (many are registered nurses) at every program who supports the emotional and physical wellbeing of all kids at camp.
Dining. Students eat breakfast, lunch and dinner in the university cafeteria. Light snacks are provided during the day.
Our team members are enthusiastic, supportive and committed to positively impacting the lives of our youth.
Facilitators are chosen from among the top professional teachers and trainers in the country. Hundreds of applicants go through our selection process. Many have advanced degrees. Each has 150 hours of training, and many have run camps for years.
Most camp staff are education majors or graduates. Many attended a camp as teens. They return annually because they enjoy the experience of working with successful people in a dynamic accelerated learning program.
The student-to-staff ratio is four-to-one or less. Students are assigned to teams of 10-12 people that have one team mentor. Camp sizes range from twenty to fifty students. Post-camp surveys indicate a 73 percent grade improvement and 81 percent improvement in confidence.
