In a nutshell, SuperCamp is an academic summer camp that has been helping students become more successful since 1982. Bobbi DePorter, our founder and president, first studied accelerated learning methods with educational pioneer Dr. Georgi Lozanov. These methods are the basis of SuperCamp, which she co-founded with Eric Jensen and further developed with Joe Chapon. They felt that students are seldom taught learning skills, and that learning how to learn can make a big difference in their academic results as well as in their lives.
The first summer camp, with 64 students attending, was held in July 1982. Results were so impressive that the company grew quickly and the word spread. SuperCamp has now graduated over 50,000 students from all 50 states and over 80 countries. The company operates under the name Quantum Learning Network (QLN), which produces SuperCamp, QL Education programs, Quantum Business programs and a range of books and products about learning and life skills for parents, students, teachers, school administrators, business people and others.
SuperCamp is based on concepts that make learning fun and easy, along with positive peer support and carefully orchestrated environmental factors. It is one of the most comprehensive summer camp programs for helping students, including teens, pre-teens and college-age students, by providing lasting skills in such diverse areas as reading comprehension, study skills, writing skills, critical thinking and life skills, to name a few.
Thanks to the vision of our Quantum Learning Network president and co-founder, Bobbi DePorter, and the energy of thousands of talented staff members, SuperCamp has grown over the years to become one of the most highly respected summer camp programs among parents and educators. From its small beginnings in 1982, SuperCamp will hold 36 programs in the U.S. this summer for approximately 3,000 students. Kids from 6th grade to college and straight A to struggling will acquire learning and life skills that bring them greater self-confidence, motivation, and higher grades.
SuperCamp programs are held on prestigious college campuses throughout the U.S.: Stanford and Cal State San Marcos in California; University of Washington in Seattle; Colorado College in Colorado Springs, Drake University in Iowa, Cornell University in New York, and Wake Forest University in North Carolina. Internationally, programs are offered in Switzerland, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, South Korea, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Bermuda. and Turkey.
