SuperCamp is a 7 day residential program conducted by US facilitators and team leaders. Founded 29 year ago by Ms Bobbi De Porter, SuperCamp program is based on the 8 Keys of Excellence.

The next camp is on 29 Nov 2009 at ACS Barker Oldham Hall. More info at www.supercamp.sg or email enquiries@supercamp.sg.

My 2 children have attended SuperCamp. They are confident, motivated and enjoy learning. At SuperCamp children are taught the learning tools. When you know how to learn what to learn, learning is a joy and they are happy. But if you have to study than it's very stressful.

I used to set goals for my children based on my expectations and not their academics ability. Today, they set their own goals which they're able to manage and achieve. I supervise their daily school work. They don't have tuition and are above average in their academic scores. They play computer games, surf the net, and very active in their social network. I am proud to say my children have a life to be normal kids, enjoying sunshine and play while achieving their goals. We celebrate small successes.

Let's be realistic and not expect miracles to happen when we send our kids to any camps. They need to apply the tools that they have learnt with parental supervision and limiting the expectations we have on our kids. The amount of money we spend on tuition is far exceeding the money we spend on SuperCamp.

SuperCamp has impacted our family lives. As a family, we are more positive and realistic in addressing the children's academics success. And, it all starts with the 8 Keys of Excellence.

It would be great if schools are run like SuperCamp with teachers equipped with 'how to teach what to teach' tools and students 'how to learn what to learn' tools.

Dear Parent,

Thanks for dropping by our thread.

We specially took up this thread to tell you a little more about Supercamp: How we stand far apart from all the different camp programs out there, what we can do for your child and why we are so confident.

You arrived here by one of two ways: You clicked on our KiasuParents featured article ... or you are a regular user of the forum, wanting to find a reliable enrichment program for your child.

Either way, it shows you care for your child and want the best for them.

In this thread, you'll get a chance to learn why Supercamp is the PREMIER life-skills and academic program in Singapore, how we can help your child ... and how you can enjoy a "$1000 discount" off our December program.

More below!


>> What is Supercamp and What Do We Do?

Parents have called us the "best-kept secret amongst Singapore parents" because we've been quietly helping thousands and thousands of students excel in school and life for the last 13 years.

You won't see our ads in the papers every single day - because we don't need to. Parents send their kids back routinely because they love the results and positive change in their kids.

Kids want to come back because they love the experience.

Even celebs like Class 95FM Radio DJ, Joe Augustin, send their kids to us because they trust and know we'll deliver a high-quality, life-changing program.

Image

Every year, we cruise nicely on word-of-mouth advertising from parent-to-parent, child-to-child.

This year, for the first time ever, we decided to try something "a little different", which is why we're here at KiasuParents.

Here's what we do at Supercamp:We teach your child practical life-skills and academic skills that help them not only do better in school, but also become a better person.

They become more driven, know what they want, have direction and can focus their energy to achieve goals.

Second, they become tougher - mentally and emotionally.

At Supercamp, we want to build their inner character up so they never give up and can handle challenges.

Finally, we help your child find their OWN inner motivation to study.

Image

They don't need MORE tuition classes anymore.

What they need is to look INSIDE themselves, and find that self-motivation to want to do well.

It's like the old proverb - you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.

We help your child find their OWN drive so they drink from the foundation of knowledge - WILLINGLY!


>> 6 Reasons Why We Are Special From ALL The Other Programs Out There!

There are hundreds of companies out there touting their services - but we at Supercamp know we stand apart from the "average" camp.

Here's why:

#1.) Firstly, Supercamp is the MOTHER of ALL Academic and Learning Camps!

We invented many of the learning techniques most camp companies are only beginning to use.

Our founder, Bobbi DePorter, worked with learning pioneer, Georgi Lazanov, to do the first Supercamp in 1982 in California, and since then, we've helped countless, countless kids worldwide.

Image

We've been in Singapore for over a decade - so we know what we're doing.

We teach using the accelerated learning methods we invented.

That means more doing, less preaching. Your child will get a chance to learn through action, movement, games, activities, debriefs, reflections and more.

This helps him/her to absorb the information deeper, and be able to apply it in their everyday lives.


#2.) We give your child maximum attention.

Our staff to student ratio is 1:5. That means one staff member to 5 students.

Image

This is in contrast to other programs where the ratio is 1 staff member to 30 kids.

We pride ourselves on giving your child maximum attention every single step of our program. This is because by doing this, we can help your child break bad habits, integrate the learning into their lives, and start REAL, practical change.


#3.) We have a PROVEN 31-year curriculum based on POSITIVE inspiration

In Supercamp Singapore, we teach by adapting our time-tested Supercamp curriculum for the Singapore education market.

We make sure the life-skills apply and the academic skills are useful.

On top of that, we motivate your child with safe, positive methods.

Your child leaves feeling inspired to do more in their lives, and knowing that they can.

This is in sharp contrast with many local companies who frighten students into doing better using fear, swear words, crying and loud breaking sounds.

We disapprove of these because they leave an emotional scar on your child's young mind.

Your child is in much safer hands when they come to Supercamp.



#4.) We teach life-skills and academic skills that LAST A LIFETIME!

We don't just teach them how to ace the PSLE or "O" Levels.

We teach them how to ace LIFE!

Image

See, once your child figures out how they tick, what drives them, what learning methods work BEST for them - they can use it over and over again - FOR ANY TEST AND EXAM!

That goes the same for character strengthening.

Once they have a strong and mentally tough mind, they can cope with whatever challenges come their way!


#5.) Our residential camp format takes your child out of their usual bad habits, and gets them to practice excellence till it becomes second nature.

Most other programs run like a "9-to-5" session. After, kids go back - toss the materials aside - and head straight for the TV and the computer.

No wonder kids quickly forget what was taught!

BUT at Supercamp, the kids stay with us for 7 FULL DAYS!

This means we get to work with them to break many of their bad habits, help them build new ones, practice the positive skills we teach - so when they leave ... it's ALL second-nature!

And yes, its a greater cost for us because we need to find accommodation, food and more for 7 full days ... and we even make ALL our adult staff stay right there, with your kids, in the same hostel for the duration of camp.

We are willing to do this because we know THIS residential format will result in REAL change for your child.


#6. We do this from a place of PURE PASSION

Look, we only do Supercamp once - at best, twice - a year.

This is in sharp contrast to other companies that pump out previews and programs every single week!

We deliberately keep numbers small and make sure your kids receive full attention.

We fly facilitators in from the US, train our staff for days and days to ensure they can help your kids to the best, eat and stay in exactly the same place as your child.

Why do we do this?

Pure Passion.

Image

Yes, we make money from the program, but we do this only ONCE a year - we pump all our energy to making the program the BEST and MOST SUCCESSFUL program we can.

If it means going the extra mile, talking longer to your child, helping them truly "get it", we - ALL our professionally-trained staff - are willing to do whatever it takes.


>> How Do We Teach and What Will Your Child Learn?

SuperCamp

Postby SupercampSG » Thu Nov 14, 2013 12:06 am

Hi there,

My name is Melvin, and I'm the Program Manager of Supercamp Singapore.

(Quick note: Before you read on, we are actually running a very brief promotion on another part of the KiasuParents forum. You can go there to learn more because we are to end the promotion there soon.

>> http://www.kiasuparents.com/kiasu/forum/viewtopic.php?f=85&t=64641


And back to our conversation ...

This thread has been around for a while, and its time we breathed new life into it.

If you read the comments above, you'll find some of the following:

- "Is Supercamp managed by Ernest Wong?"

- "How different is it from Adam Khoo and the rest?"

- "Are the effects temporary?"

- "What are the costs of the camp, and if so - what am I paying for?"



We actually have updated our website to answer all these questions.

You can check it out at http://www.supercamp.sg


And since you're here, let me answer a few:

1. Supercamp is NOT managed by Ernest.

We are the Singapore branch of Supercamp. Supercamp was founded by Bobbi DePorter in 1982 in the US, and we are the inventors and pioneers of almost all the learning techniques you see camp companies use today.

That's why we are called the "MOTHER of all life-skills and academics camps"

That also answers what the difference between us and all the camp companies out there.

We have a 31 year curriculum, we have been in Singapore since 2000 and Bobbi DePorter was recently recognized in 2012 with the Global Humanitarian award due to her work with Supercamp around the world.

Image

This is why Supercamp is the PREMIER life-skills and academic programs for kids and teens in the world, including Singapore.


2. Are the effects temporary?

Well, I recommend you check out the following link where we go into detail how we teach and do what we do.

>> http://supercamp.sg/about.htm

Do note that our camp program isn't the usual "9-to-5" that other companies run.

Those aren't as effective because when your child returns from at 5pm, they go back to their phones, computers and barely change.


At Supercamp, they learn and PRACTICE the skills - over and over again - for 7 FULL days with us!

That's how you make a skill a HABIT and make it second nature to use when they go home.



3. About Cost

The interesting fact is, even though Supercamp

- Boasts a 31-year proven curriculum ...
- Fly in facilitators who are specially trained for 300 hours in the US ...
- Conduct a 7-day FULL program in a top local hostel
- Are the pioneers of accelerated learning
- Hire only undergrads and qualified staff (not secondary students)
- Have won awards after awards from top international educational institutions for years
- Have been profiled in CNN, Wall Street Journal, LA Times, Chicago Tribune
- Has even been given the prestigious P20 award and Transformational Leadership Council Award

... the cost of Supercamp is actually WAY more affordable than all the other camp programs out there!

Do a Google comparison if you have to, and you'll quickly find that out!

Its a case where the BEST and PREMIER is actually the most affordable!

True, Supercamp doesn't run for a few hundred dollars - because we can't!

In your course fee, you are paying for :

1. Your child's FULL 7-day food and accommodation at a top local hostel
2. Course materials of all kinds
3. A full-day experience at a safe and fun outdoor venue
4. Four to five well-trained, professional facilitators flown in from the US
5. Professionally trained local staff of top quality
6. The 31-Yr Proven Curriculum

All these are included inside the course fee.


For more information, you can check out http://www.supercamp.sg or drop me an email at melvin@qln.com.sg

You can also pm me on LinkedIn if you use that. I'm available at http://sg.linkedin.com/in/melvinsohsupercamp/

I answer all emails personally.

Hear from you!

$2250? I'd rather use it to go on a holiday seriously.

"You won't see our ads in the papers every single day - because we don't need to. Parents send their kids back routinely because they love the results and positive change in their kids. "

You mean to say that parents need to send their kids to you yearly because the change they had is only temporary and wears off. Thus, they need you to routinely re-psych them up?
