Weekend at camp! Sleep-in day for MAC got everybody rested up for the weekends fun activities. MAC kids finished up their first classes with fun projects, such as a tri-wizard tournament in Wizard Training, and tye-dyeing in crafts!
Rain clouds on the horizon did not deter the fun of camp out games for MAC, who had a picnic dinner, a scavenger hunt, relay races, and a watermelon eating contest! The rain did come and everyone is inside tonight warm and dry.
The Great Adventure today had outdoor challenges in the morning, out kayaking, rock climbing and mountain biking. The evening they went to the luau! Dressed up in leis and flowers, TGA had a delicious luau dinner outside in the warm evening, excitedly anticipating the beach volley ball games. The games where exciting, counselor versus campers!

Can you find the climber above? TGA had a full day of Great Outdoor adventures. The rock climbing crew went to Harper’s Ferry to climb on Maryland Heights, while kayaking hit the rapids on the Antietam River. MAC had a morning full of sports, an afternoon at Greenbrier State Park, and a night at laser tag or a Frederick Keys game! How do these campers not collapse from exhaustion?!?

This summer Mercersburg Academy is sponsoring it’s very own Swim Clinics. 2 sessions in June that will help swimmers from 9-18 excel in the pool, but also have an awesome week on campus! While United Swim Clinics has run programs at Mercersburg in year’s past, a program producing 30 olympians and led by aquatics director, Pete Williams, who has participated in four olympic games can certainly speak for itself. Our beautiful Nolde Athletic center is the perfect setting to improve your stroke over the summer and Mercersburg is the perfect place to go to camp!
