Our summer programs utilize all of the resources of our beautiful 300-acre campus, including a fully networked technology structure, seminar-style classrooms, extensive science labs, audio and video production areas, outstanding fine-arts studios, and a 55,000-volume library. All learning spaces are air conditioned.
Participants train, run, swim, and play in all of the state-of-the-art athletic facilities at Mercersburg Academy, including the Nolde Gymnasium complex and Hale Field House, the McDowell Fitness Center, the Flanagan Pool, the Kuhn Wrestling Center, the Smoyer Tennis Center, and the Davenport Squash Center, as well as outside on eight premier athletic fields.
The Masinter Outdoor Education Center
serves as the base for outdoor activities and adventures. The center houses an expansive indoor climbing wall, the mountain bike program, the trek and camping program, and the watersports paddling program. Mercersburg’s proximity to the surrounding area, which includes unique wildlife habitats, tributaries of the Potomac River watershed, and thousands of acres of state and national forests, give us many options for outdoor activities and sports.
