Leading School Holiday Program SuperCamp® Australia Improves Child Learning Skills
VICTORIA, Australia May 2012 – The first ever SuperCamp® Australia was held over the Easter holidays in April this year and was a fantastic success for children and parents alike. Children, who said they were going to “hate” their parents for sending them to the educational school holiday camp, enjoyed it so much they begged to be able to stay longer.
Of the children who attended the world-renowned school holiday program, 100 per cent increased their self esteem, 100 per cent increased the confidence and courage, 100 per cent increased their self-discipline and commitment, 100 per cent increased their academic skills and 100 per cent increased their communication and relationship skills. Not bad for just ten days at camp! www.supercampaustralia.org/
“When it comes to gaining new life skills, SuperCamp® Australia is the leading child learning and life skills camp and the results are there to prove it,” says Heather Yelland, Director of Project KidsConnect, the organisation that brought SuperCamp® to Australia. “The children learn that success in all aspects of their life depends on them. They are the master of their world. They create the direction and outcome of their own life, through the choices they make and the tools provided at SuperCamp® Australia support them to make great choices.”
SuperCamp® Australia introduces the eight keys of excellence – Integrity, Failure Leads to Success, Speak with Good Purpose, This is It!, Commitment, Ownership, Flexibility, and Balance.
“Once the children learn about each of these eight keys and how to use them in their life, they feel really different about themselves, the people who love and support them and about the kind of life they want to live,” says Heather.
SuperCamp® Australia found children improved, on average, 38 per cent in the area communication and relationship skills, 55 per cent in academic skills and 30 per cent in the area of personal skills, which are outstanding results. The current school system operates predominantly in an auditory manner whilst the majority of students are kinaesthetic or visual learners, and that means the needs of many children are not being well met.
