Last week, 58 young people, aged 11 to 13, attended the six-day camp, where they focused on communication, critical thinking and character development as well as innovation learning strategies and academic skills.

This fully subsidized camp gave middle school students an incredible opportunity to develop their socio-emotional skills, to build and maintain relationships with others more effectively, and gain neuroscience-based learning techniques to enhance their school performance.

Prior to the closing ceremony, students had the opportunity to run their own ‘trade show’ to teach others in the community what they had learned in terms of the core principles of the program.

Additionally, 44 parents completed a two-day workshop created especially for parents of the students.

“SuperCamp is not a typical classroom or camp experience; it uses a structured curriculum to provide students with intensive personal development and learning strategies to be more effective learners,” said Minister Weeks.

“Students focused on the 8 Keys of Excellence, productive communication strategies, academic success, and how to fuel their desire for personal excellence.”

In speaking to those gathered on Sunday, Minister Weeks said, “I would like to send a heartfelt thank you to the volunteers that have graciously given their time over the last eight days.

“Their passion to support the youth of Bermuda is one of the driving forces that makes this camp transformational for the young people.

    Communication is the key. We need to teach our young people in the schools how to resolve conflicts without violence, starting at a very young age. . Poor communication skills and a lack of respect is the root of the problem. They unfortunately take that problem into adulthood.
