About Supercamp and Supercamp Singapore
We at Quantum Learning
Singapore organize and run Supercamp Singapore - a 7-day,
Singapore-based Supercamp conducted by US facilitators and supported by
The foundation of our program is an adapted-for-Singapore edition of
our world-famous Supercamp curriculum.
Supercamp was first founded by Bobbi DePorter in 1982 and the original
goal was to teach students important life-skills that they could use
for the rest of their lives and to make learning fun and meaningful.
Combining cutting-edge learning technology from famed educator Georgi
Lazanov and life-lessons from the world's greatest achievers, Bobbi
developed an innovative and engaging 7-day life-skills and academic
skills program - Supercamp.
Supercamp combined powerful academic techniques like speed reading,
study skills, writing, math, creativity and critical thinking with
important life skills in the areas of communication, leadership,
relationships, self-worth, personal responsibility, goal-setting and
And the results were amazing.
The first Supercamp Bobbi conducted was an instant hit with parents and
students alike. Students had never experienced anything as unique and
as life-changing as Supercamp.
Since then, Supercamp has impacted the lives of close to 65,000
graduates in 85 countries, been featured in countless media outlets
like The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, CNN and trained more than
30,000 teachers and school administrators in almost 30 states in the

How We Teach Your Child At Supercamp Singapore
On top of using our
trademark Quantum Learning teaching methods, we ensure that every child
is giving specialized attention.
Your child will join a group of 9 - 11 other kids of the same age to
form a group of 10 - 12 members.
Each group has 2 - 3 team-leaders. We take special attention to keep
out staff-to-student ration at 5:1.
Content is covered from the front of the stage by our US facilitators,
and then the team leaders lead the group in either activities (where
everyone participates) or debriefs (where everyone gets a chance to
share what they learnt from the activitiy)
We train our team-leaders to not only obtain learnings from every
student, but to link it to the student's personal life - with friends,
family or school-mates.
This makes the content we teach practical and applicable for the
On top of that, our team-leaders are trained to make sure that every
student is participating during the activities.
Each student also has a playbook where they can write/journal their
thoughts, learnings and feelings.
Also, there are also tons of follow-along worksheets and
activity-pieces that students work on during the actual program so they
gather the learning after completion.
We do this for BOTH our life-skills and academic-skills sections.
We want students to physically DO and PRACTICE as we teach every single
time, because we know an engaged and active student is a learning

Supercamp Singapore - A Unique Program Tailored
To Meet The Educational Needs of Singapore And South-East Asian
At Supercamp Singapore,
we've shaped the curriculum so it fits in perfectly with the
Singapore/South-east Asian education system!
1. Academic Skills
We cover test-taking techniques so students thrive during exam time. We
teach them how to manage their time, take notes in a personal and
engaging way, how to prepare so they feel confident when the test date
rolls around, and even a 10-second method to manage their state and
calm themselves down.
Also, we've concentrated our efforts in teaching students how to write
better, read faster and remember more.
We know that local students have plenty to read. Textbooks are thicker
and there's an endless amount of reading material.
Also, there's a heavy demand on students to remember chunks and chunks
of information for tests and exams.
In addition, teachers demand essays/compositions on a tight deadline -
and require students to write these in an information-rich AND creative
All this can stress a child out, unless they have an arsenal of
efficient methods to cope with these demands.
We teach students these techniques and get them to use them over and
over again during Supercamp Singapore.
This means that students leave with a complete mastery of these tools,
and are ready to use them at the drop of a hat.
2. Life Skills
When covering life-skills, we align all staff members, foreign and
local, on Singapore/South-east Asian culture.
This way, we use examples and life scenarios that students can relate
Also, we hire Singaporean and South-east Asian team leaders - and they
serve as a bridge between the curriculum that the US facilitators cover
on stage and the local students, especially since they understand how
things are like here.
These team leaders will engage students within the groups, elicit
learnings and answers from them and coach them on how to apply these
life-skills in their lives.
