One summer camp is helping students prepare for college well before they reach their senior year of high school. At SuperCamp’s 10-day learning and life skills academic summer camps, students entering grades 9 through 12 learn valuable real-life skills that help prepare them for the next level in school and in life.
In fact, 73 percent of SuperCamp graduates report achieving higher grades after attending the summer program. A remarkable 98 percent of graduates indicate they continue to use the skills they learned following camp, 84 percent say their self-esteem improved and 81 percent note an increase in confidence.
There are two reasons why SuperCamp achieves these results, according to SuperCamp co-founder, Bobbi DePorter. “First, at SuperCamp, kids learn how to learn. We give them the tools to read and write better, study more effectively, and problem solve,” said DePorter. “Second, we create a series of mini-success moments for each kid, so they leave SuperCamp feeling more comfortable with whom they are and more confident in their ability to succeed at anything they put their minds to.”
Based on accelerated learning methods that Ms. DePorter first applied with entrepreneurs over 30 years ago, SuperCamp is an intensive residential summer program that has graduated over 57,000 students worldwide in its 30 years.
SuperCamp will be held at nine U.S. college campuses this summer, from Stanford University in the west to Brown in the east. Other locations include, Wake Forest University, UCLA, UC Berkeley, Loyola Marymount, Kent State University, University of South Florida and San Jose State University.
SuperCamp offers three grade-specific summer programs: the 7-day Junior Forum for students entering grades 6-8 in the fall, the 10-day Senior Forum for students entering grades 9-12, and Quantum U for incoming college students. The dynamic learning environment is designed to maximize long-term retention of the information provided.
