Mercersburg Adventure Camp

Enrichment Activities

MAC campers get to choose three different Enrichment classes that meet at least five times a session. Each activity is designed to inspire campers to be creative and to explore the world around them. Absolutely no prior experience is necessary, although a curious mind is a must.
