   Watch Promo

In this 8-week online summer camp, your children will discover their superpowers, learn how to strengthen them, and most importantly, come to understand how to use them to help others.

This camp is inspired by, and pulls from, the How To Be Super: Violet Crown story collection, in which a 12 year old boy from Austin TX discovers that he is one of 5 initiates into a secretive band of superheroes. Over the 20 stories, he undergoes superhero training, learning the four-step Prime Power Protocol. It is this training on which we have based the training in the How To Be Super Summer Camp!

The Basic camp is a a self-directed experience that employs videos, practice exercises and a live Q & A video to guide children through a summer of transformation and discovery.

The How To Be Super Summer Camp will help children:

  • develop resilience
  • learn how to "show up" in all aspects of life
  • strengthen empathy and compassion
  • discover the power of honesty and authenticity
  • find strength in humility
  • value "mistakes" and challenges
  • and learn how to lead by example.

The Basic Camp includes:

• 16 video lessons, plus a welcome and a closing video
• 16 practice sheet downloads

• advanced training practice options for children ages 9+
• 20-Story Collection How To Be Super - Book One: The Violet Crown (10 hours of listening, $30 value)
• 1 Live Training with David in July
• 1 printable course checklist
• 1 downloadable printable completion form

By the end of the summer, your whole family will be powered up! The Camp runs June 18th through August 10th.

Perfect for kids ages 6 and up, with additional content for campers 9 and up.

Alias: Downtown Dave

Superpowers: Transformation, Truth Detection, Healing Language, Sleep Inducement

David learned he had the power of transformation when he successfully convinced his neighbors that he was an eighty year old man. David was in second grade at the time. Since then, he has used this power along with truth detection and healing language as an elementary school teacher, parent, soccer coach and eventually chief tale spinner for Sparkle Stories. He recently found that Sleep Inducement works not only on his two sons, but also on people who attend his lectures and workshops.

Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
The How To Be Super Summer Camp starts on June 18, 2018 and runs to August 3rd. If you can't make this 2018 Camp, don't worry! We'll be hosting it again in 2019.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
Can my child do this course completely on her own?
With the Basic camp, a parent or caregiver is needed to support children for key moments of the summer camp experience. Your child can watch the videos and complete the practice worksheets & projects on her own, however we recommend parent overview of the child's participation in the course. Some of the exercises ask the child to be introspective and self-aware, in ways that may be new to them. Children may want or need parent-engagement in this process. Additionally there are "walks" and adventures that will need family-appropriate boundary & limit setting. Lastly there will be practice sheets to print and supplies to gather, which will require parent support.
What is the time commitment for this camp?
There are two videos each week, each roughly 5-7 minutes apiece. There are two practice assignments each week, which we estimate could take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour and a half or longer, depending on the child and the exercise. The stories themselves offer over 10 hours of content. The inspiration, however, will infuse all 8 weeks!
What if we miss a week of the camp?
You can do this camp at your own pace. Once the course launches, the content will be "dripped" out week by week. Once it's made public, it will be available to you indefinitely, so if you miss a week - no worries! You can catch up before moving on. We do host one live video training, however even that will be available for viewing after it airs.
Will my child need to read & write in order to participate in the camp?
Not at all. This camp is a combination of videos, practice worksheets and a live "training." The worksheets can be completed with writing or drawing or both! As long as parents or caregivers are willing to read instructions out loud, you'll be set!
The How To Be Super stories are marked as 9+ but the camp is for 6+. How does that work?
The How To Be Super Collections are marked as 9+ due to the complicated storylines as well as some of the content. However, families expressed a desire to have their younger children participate in the camp, so we expanded the age range. (Also many families with younger children have enjoyed the stories.) For children under 9, parents and caregivers will want to review the content to ensure the content is appropriate for your children and family culture. Children can enjoy and fully engage in the How to Be Super Summer Camp without listening to the stories.
Does my child need to have listened to the How To Be Super: Violet Crown stories before starting camp?
A download of the How To Be Super: Violet Crown collection is included with the camp content, and all campers are invited to listen as we go along. Throughout the camp, the trainers reference key moments in the stories for context and as examples. That being said, the How To Be Super Collections are marked as 9+ due to the complicated storylines as well as some of the content. For children under 9, parents and caregivers will want to review the content to ensure the content is appropriate for your children. Children can enjoy and fully engage in the How to Be Super Summer Camp without listening to the stories.
Can two or more children take the How To Be Super Basic camp under one registration?
Absolutely! You can print as many practice sheets as you'd like and invite the whole family to watch the videos. Because parents help children direct and track this camp, as many family members as you'd like can join in. We only ask that you share the camp content with your own family, and not with others.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days after the start of camp and we will give you a full refund.
What if I have questions?
Email us at howtobesuper@sparklestories.com any time, and we will be happy to help.
