Hurricanes vs. Tornadoes
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. Every camper is drafted into either the Hurricanes or Tornadoes within days of arriving on campus and from that point on every sports rotation, song competition and capture the flag contest have paramount significance. Don’t think it’s that serious? Just ask them!
