Life at SuperCamp

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 mentors live in the same residence halls as their students, providing 24-hour guidance.


Safety. Since its first program in 1982, SuperCamp has provided a safe, secure environment for participants. 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 particpants.


Dining.  Students eat breakfast, lunch and dinner in the university cafeteria. Light snacks are provided during the day.

Staff: Experience Counts

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 SuperCamp as teens. They return annually because they enjoy the experience of working with successful people in a dynamic accelerated learning program.
