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.
At SuperCamp we focus on understanding how the mind learns, processes information, and interacts in social situations. To ensure campers reach optimal outcomes, SuperCamp is designed as a distraction-free environment. As such, students are required to hand in all electronics (cell phones, cameras, iPads, iPods, tablets, MP3 players, etc.) when checking into camp.
Being technology free during camp allows for a pattern interrupt that provides full immersion into the SuperCamp experience. When students are separated from technology, they are free to focus on their experience and how they’re living their lives without interruption.
Campers will get their phones for a 15-20 minute mid-camp check-in call around dinner time on day 3 of Junior Forum, on day 4 of the 7-day Leadership Forum, Quantum Academy, and Senior Forum program, and on day 5 of the 10-day Senior Forum program.
To ensure safety and communication, we will contact you if there is an emergency or particular concern about your child (illness, homesickness, behavior, etc.). If at any time there is an emergency at home or you would like to check in with the office staff about your child, please call the site office number that is provided.

Engaging and effective academic and life skills coaching—90 hours in the 10-day programs, 68 hours in the 7-day programs and 54 hours in the 6-day programs.
