SuperCamp’s Junior Forum program inspires and empowers new and soon-to-be teens to become independent, confident and self-motivated learners ready to excel at the next level in school and life.
Every student who attends SuperCamp has a personal growth and learning plan available to them from the time they enter middle school up to and including their college years.
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, conflict resolution, time management, self-reflection, and goal-setting. We inspire students to value themselves and believe in their ability to excel in all areas of their lives.
The ability to lead is a fundamental part of academic confidence and personal success. Topics include creative thinking, goal-setting, problem-solving, team building, collaboration, and time management. Campers returning to Junior Forum can be a part of the Leadership Track, in which they discover what their strengths are as leaders, the role they play on a team, and how to bring out the best in others.
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 that produces strong feelings that they are capable of doing anything they set their mind to.
Our 8 Keys of Excellence 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. Students participate in their learning at SuperCamp—they don’t just observe! When learning is meaningful, memorable, and joyful, students excel.
