Enrichment and the Arts

Our enrichment programs inspire people to develop to the full extent of their capabilities, and to excel intellectually and creatively. Each program also features recreational activities to supplement the respective curriculum.

Mercersburg Summer STEAM Camp

Mercersburg Summer STEAM Camp takes students to the front lines of the Maker revolution as they learn by doing. Engineering, programming, 3D printing, textiles, and metal fabrication are all featured in this 5-day immersion into the essentials of Making in the 21st century. 

Performing Arts Intensive

Mercersburg’s Performing Arts Intensive is a dynamic two-week program that will inspire actors and dancers to learn different styles as well as discovering their own.

Young Writers Camp

Build writing skills and unleash your creativity in a unique environment of like-minded individuals with a passion for writing.  Explore the beauty of poetic style and the power of your own voice on paper.

Parents Corner

Our camps are a young person’s dream. In fact, they may also be an adult’s dream. Here are just some of the reasons why parents love us:


Tuition covers everything—all activity choices, events, trips, meals, two camp shirts, backpack, and a water bottle. There are no extra charges; campers do not need snacks, care packages, or even personal spending money. 


All of our adventures are supervised to varying degrees. Young people need the opportunity to succeed and even to struggle, with the knowledge that they are tackling challenges within a supportive environment.


We also believe that communication is one of the keys to success. That communication includes 24-hour phone access to the camp staff, and includes a call from your camper’s counselor after camp gets started. Check out our blog or photos that we update regularly during sessions so that parents get a “virtual” look at what we are doing and where we are going!


Care of our participants includes medical services. Our on-campus health center provides care for minor bumps and bruises, and we have access to emergency services 24 hours a day.
