Mercersburg Academy maintains a heated rivalry every school year that manifests itself in Irving-Marshall week. These two societies go back as far as 1873 and are the driving force between a week long competition every winter. At Mercersburg Summer we wanted to capture the essence of this rivalry when we established the Adventure Camp Hurricanes vs. Tornadoes challenge and it became a perennial summer long battle with a spirited culture all of its own.

Don’t think it’s that serious? Just ask them!
