First, at SuperCamp, kids learn how to learn. We give them the tools to read and write better, study more effectively, and problem solve
Oceanside, CA (PRWEB) March 29, 2007
A study with over 6,000 graduates of SuperCamp, the 7-10 day learning and life skills summer camp, reveals that 73 percent of graduates report achieving higher grades after attending SuperCamp. 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 individual, so they leave SuperCamp feeling more comfortable with who 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 almost 30 years ago, SuperCamp is an intensive residential summer program that has graduated over 45,000 students worldwide in its 25 years. In addition, DePorter's company, Quantum Learning Network, trains teachers in these same learning techniques in schools throughout the United States.
SuperCamp targets its programs to specific age and grade levels. Its seven-day Youth Forum is for students who will be entering grades 4-5 in the fall, Junior Forum is for students entering grades 6-8, Senior Forum is for students entering grades 9-12 and Quantum U, an eight-day program, is for high school graduates through college seniors.
SuperCamp is held on college campuses, with kids staying on-campus in the dorms. This summer SuperCamp will be held at eight U.S. colleges: Stanford, Cornell, the University of Washington, the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, Cal State San Marcos in San Diego, The Claremont Colleges in the Los Angeles area, Wake Forest and Colorado College in Colorado Springs.
Each camp balances academics with fun activities such as a ropes course and features a dynamic, interactive learning environment that maximizes the long-term retention of the information provided.
