Cornell becomes first Ivy League school to host SuperCamp's academic and life skills summer camps starting in 2007.

Joe Chapon, Vice President of Quantum Learning Network, today announced that Cornell University, in Ithaca, New York, will become the first Ivy League school to hold a SuperCamp summer camp program when it hosts SuperCamp sessions for middle school and high school students this summer.

SuperCamp is an intensive 10-day summer program that has graduated over 45,000 students worldwide in its 25 years. Based on accelerated learning methods, SuperCamp prepares students for the next level at school and in life with 21st century learning and life skills ranging from study and test-taking techniques to leadership, communication and time-management training.

In making the announcement, Mr. Chapon indicated his pleasure in adding an Ivy League school to the SuperCamp roster of colleges. "We are thrilled to add Cornell to our fine list of schools," said Chapon. "Families in the northeast United States, eastern Canada and Europe, for that matter, who are looking for the SuperCamp experience for their children, will find Cornell to be an ideal setting."

The other U.S. sites for SuperCamp 2007 are Stanford, Wake Forest, University of Washington, Colorado College, Claremont Colleges, California State San Marcos and University of Wisconsin-Parkside.

SuperCamp was co-founded in 1982 by Bobbi DePorter, President of Quantum Learning Network. In the 1970's, Ms. DePorter studied with Dr. Georgi Lozanov, the father of accelerated learning, which is the basis of the company's Quantum Learning educational methods. At SuperCamp, the traditional perception of "learning" is turned on its ear with a series of dynamic mental and physical challenges. The results are increased grades, improved student motivation and higher levels of self-confidence and self-esteem.
