Academic pressure to stand out. Social pressure to fit in. It’s not easy being a high school or middle school student these days.
Whether your child is straight A, struggling, or somewhere in between, chances are they’re often overwhelmed by too much homework, too many activities, and the never-ending distractions created by technology. SuperCamp teaches teens real-life strategies that help them manage their time and improve their relationships. The result—increases in their grades, confidence and motivation.
Now in its 32nd year with 65,000 graduates worldwide, SuperCamp is a 7- to 10-day residential camp held on prestigious college campuses that teaches strategies for reading, writing, memorizing, studying, and problem-solving. SuperCamp combines the 8 Keys of Excellence character-building program with academic preparation and fun outdoor challenge activities to give kids an edge in learning and in life.
Let’s face it, college life is different. It’s a fun and exciting time of growth, but with growth comes growing pains. College life can be fragmented, intense, and sometimes overwhelming. For the first time students experience large classes, unstructured time, and professors who think their course is a student’s only priority.
In just eight days at Quantum U, participants learn how to manage their time, energy, and finances. They gain added focus and confidence while elevating their communication, presentation, study, writing, and reading skills. This program is designed for students who are entering their first year of college and want to begin their college career feeling empowered to live up to their full potential, and for sophomores and juniors who need to get back onto the path of success.
Our facilitators and team leaders give Quantum U students strategies for note-taking, studying, and balancing campus life. Students learn Quantum note-taking and mind-mapping, and then get to practice these skills during college-level lectures where they learn from a scientific and psychological standpoint how their brain processes information. They learn the why behind how they learn and are challenged with high level critical thinking and analysis.
