A Government spokesperson said, “The Super Camp Junior Forum is a programme for middle school students and it’s designed to make them more self-aware of where they currently are academically and socially. The programme also identifies what steps the students can take in order to continue their success and development.

“Over the recent school break, and against the backdrop of the theme “Keys Open Doors”, the Mirrors Super Camp saw 50 public, private and home school students aged  11-14, participate in the six day forum. Parents also participated in a one-day workshop as part of the programme.”

In highlighting Super Camp, Minister Caines said, “Too often we don’t seem to highlight the greatness and the amazing potential of our young people.

“But this weekend, we celebrated the success of the students and parents who took part in the Mirrors Super Camp Junior Forum. Using experiential learning, facilitators were able to create experiences where students can quickly gain clarity on their current behaviors and ability levels.

“Through team discussions they learned strategies for improving themselves. Super Camp places a heavy emphasis on encouraging team building and making friendship connections. Our young people also learned valuable study skills aimed at preparing them for success such areas as spelling, reading, writing and memorization using their brain’s natural learning systems.”
