What is SuperCamp
SuperCamp is the original academic, life and career skills camp. Since it began in 1982 as the first teen summer program of its kind-SuperCamp has become a respected worldwide leader in student programs that enhance academic, leadership, communication, and other essential skills for achievement and success in the 21st century.

A Unique Learning Experience
SuperCamp is a highly engaging 3 or 8-day experience where 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 retreat for your child. Students are required to hand in all electronics (cell phones, cameras, iPads, iPods, tablets, MP3 players, etc.) when checking into camp and for the duration of camp 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. 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 single minute of every day at SuperCamp is planned in advance and carefully orchestrated in the moment. This comprehensive planning ensures that students receive highly engaging and effective and academic and life skills training all day every day—a total of 90 hours in the 8-day program. In addition to academics, students build their confidence and motivation by learning to value themselves and realizing they can achieve anything they set their mind to. They also learn about effective communication and positive relationships with techniques to address conflict, apologize effectively, and take ownership for their actions.
Even with all this learning going on, SuperCamp is fun. At the beginning of each session, students come into the main room dancing to a live DJ. The course work is interactive, not just lecture style. We make sure all learning styles (visual, auditory, and kinesthetic) are engaged. We encourage students to take responsibility for their education and give them strategies to make learning more meaningful—and easier. Students learn about the benefits of teamwork and bond over team-building activities including ropes courses, board breaking, and general group interaction. The result? Most students form deep friendships that last. Independent studies have found that a full 98% of our graduates continue to use the SuperCamp academic and personal growth skills to achieve success in their lives years after graduating. In the 21st century, students need an edge to get into college and to be successful in their lives. SuperCamp gives your son or daughter that edge.
