SuperCamp, the original academic and life skills summer camp, will host two sessions at Kent State University this summer. This marks the first academic summer camp in Ohio in SuperCamp’s history.
This new location brings the number of locations to nine where the summer academic program will have pre-teen and teen summer camps in 2011. Kent State is the fourth new location for SuperCamp this year, in addition to University of South Florida, San Jose State University and UC Berkeley in Northern California.
"We're very excited about adding Kent State to our roster of host schools for SuperCamp," said SuperCamp president, Bobbi DePorter. "With such a rich history, Kent State offers another great option for parents and students in the Northeast and Midwest."
This is the thirtieth year that SuperCamp's educational summer camps have been providing learning and life skills training to students. In that time, over 57,000 students have graduated from the summer enrichment program, including many second-generation SuperCampers.
SuperCamp helps students improve their grades through new learning skills that include learning how to learn. Students also gain an understanding of their dominant learning style, which helps them achieve greater success when they return to school.
The 7-day and 10-day SuperCamp curriculum also includes life skills instruction in such areas as communication, leadership, critical thinking, character development, and problem solving. These life skills enable students to gain confidence, motivation and self-esteem, which is reflected in better school grades, improved peer group and family relationships, and a more goal-oriented focus on the future.
The popularity of SuperCamp's programs combined with the appeal of the camp locations all but guarantee that the programs will fill up well before summer, so Ms. DePorter urges interested families to look into SuperCamp immediately to ensure their first choice in schools and dates.
