SuperCamp is the #1 camp in the world for empowering students to achieve their full potential in school and in life.
Today, the only thing tougher than raising a teenager is being one. Teens are under pressure to get good grades and to get into a top college. If they are trying to get results, it’s often more for their parents than for themselves.
So, who’s solving this problem? Schools try, but for the most part, they’re failing. Schools focus on teaching content – history, math, English, science. But they’re not teaching kids how to learn. Very few schools teach practical life skills. Often, school districts simply “teach to the test.” Many teachers aren’t motivated and neither are the students.
Since day one, SuperCamp has been in the business of inspiring teens, which results in self-motivated learners. Every day at SuperCamp students gain new learning and life skills and experience many success moments throughout camp as they master these new skills. At some point, the breakthrough happens – the realization that they can overcome what’s been holding them back and they can set and achieve new goals.
To sum it up, students arrive at SuperCamp knowing they have to learn and they leave SuperCamp wanting to learn. The greatest gift you can give your son or daughter is to have them want to learn for their own sake – to become an independent, self-motivated learner.
We empower students to:
Your son or daughter acquires strategies for effective learning in all subjects, develops critical new skills in reading, writing, thinking, speaking, memory and note-taking, and builds communication, leadership, relationship and career capabilities. Think of SuperCamp as an academic and personal growth retreat for your teen.
Students are required to hand in all electronics (cell phones, cameras, iPads, iPods, tablets, MP3 players, etc.) when checking into camp. For the duration of camp they are allowed to use these items for 10-20 minutes a day–that’s it.
This pattern interrupt opens students’ minds to the task at hand, immerses them in the SuperCamp experience, and allows us to “reach” kids and get exceptional results.
We know this is tough. But it pays off. When students are separated from their technology, they focus on the SuperCamp experience and look at their values and how they’re living their lives without interruption.
Utilizing proven Quantum Learning teaching methods, every minute and day at SuperCamp is planned in advance and carefully orchestrated in the moment.
Engaging and effective academic and life skills coaching all day every day – a total of 90 hours in the 10-day programs and 54 hours in the 6-day programs.
Increased confidence and motivation through life skills training that provides the tools to tackle even the biggest challenges and get more organized around goal-setting.
Effective communication skills and positive relationships with techniques to address conflict, apologize effectively, and take ownership for actions.
The course work is interactive and interspersed with music and fun. Visual, auditory, and kinesthetic teaching strategies are utiliized to engage all students. We emphasize teamwork and participants bond over team-building activities including an outdoor adventure course, board breaking, and general group interaction. Students form deep friendships that last long after camp!
