SuperCamp’s Senior Forum is a program for students entering grades 9 to 12. Senior Forum is a transformational experience for high school students, most of whom are feeling the stresses of needing to achieve good grades, but who are doing so as much for their parents as for themselves. This “have to” feeling changes at SuperCamp, as students get inspired and self-motivated to want to learn and to set and achieve personal goals. Students are inspired and empowered to excel in school and in life.
One of the great things about attending SuperCamp is that we provide each student with an established path for personal growth and learning.
Our key areas of focus are the following:
Students gain specialized academic strategies applicable in any learning situation. Topics covered include effective reading and writing strategies, study skills, creative thinking, meaningful and memorable note-taking, and memorization tools. Our goal is to empower students to excel in all subjects.
Students experience many personal insights during their time at SuperCamp. We help them build self-confidence and motivation and teach them the value of strong relationships. Topics covered include positive communication, self-reflection, habit formation, self-expression, and FIMAGE (fear of image). We inspire students to value themselves and to believe in their ability to excel in all areas of their lives.
Leadership development is a priority throughout SuperCamp. It begins with first-year campers and it continues in Senior Forum with returning students who can join our Leadership Team, which supports further leadership skills development.
Breaking through self-imposed personal fears and limitations is a vital learning and growth experience for students. Topics include risk-taking, trust, comfort zone vs. learning zone, and setting goals that reflect personal values and beliefs. Students participate in an outdoor challenge course and a barrier-breaking activity, both of which produce strong feelings that they are capable of doing anything they set their mind to.
The 8 Keys of Excellence are integrated into all aspects of the Senior Forum program. These Keys teach students to match their behavior with their values, learn from their mistakes, speak honestly and kindly, make the most of every moment, make their dreams happen, take responsibility for their actions, be flexible, and live their best life. When students embrace these principles, they are inspired to strive for personal excellence.
We believe that to be effective learning must be fun. At SuperCamp we utilize research-based educational practices to create a joyful and engaging learning environment. We include music, fun activities, entertaining skits, and energetic games, and students participate in their learning at SuperCamp, they don’t just observe! We know that when learning is meaningful, memorable, and joyful, students excel.
