SuperCamp's academic summer camps are taking the concept of college prep a step farther in 2010 with training that will help students in the area of life prep. SuperCamp provides students with both learning skills and life skills.
"With the bad economy, many parents are expressing concern over their kids' attitudes and hope for the future," said Bobbi DePorter, president of SuperCamp. "SuperCamp provides them with hope and with the skills to realize their potential."
Most students who attend SuperCamp's 7-day pre-teen and 10-day teen summer camps come away with greater self-confidence, self-esteem, and motivation. They learn communication and interpersonal skills that help them in relationships with friends and family members.
While parents often enroll their sons and daughters for the learning skills that will help them improve their grades, they tell SuperCamp later that the true lasting value of the program can be seen in the newfound confidence of their kids and in the improved relationships within the family.
As one parent of a SuperCamp graduate says, "SuperCamp gave my daughter the tools to improve not only her grades but also her attitude. She emerged a motivated 'can't wait to learn more' teenager. Better attitude, better self-motivation, more self-esteem and the bonus... better grades."
Even the college prep skills the students gain aren't limited to the college-level learning skills. Students gain an understanding of what's required to successfully navigate the challenges that come with the freedom of being on one's own. SuperCamp and it's college summer camp, Quantum U, address such topics as time management, fitness, health and nutrition, and money management.
This focus on the whole person is why SuperCamp's summer enrichment camps truly are about preparing students for success in school and life.
