Adventure Camp

Mercersburg Adventure Camp takes kids and teens ages 8-14 on a wild ride they will talk about for years.Variety is the spice of life, and at Adventure Camp, variety is an understatement. There’s never a dull moment with exciting enrichments, excursions in the great outdoors, and adventures near and far! Camp activities include trips to Hersheypark, white water rafting, and a professional sporting event.

MAC’s unique structure provides just the right balance of enrichment challenges, athletics, outdoor activities, and fun trips to make every session wild, wonderful, and memorable.

Meet the Director

Emily Schoenberger has been involved with Summer Programs for years in all kinds of roles, including as a camper! She shares that she loves camp because it’s a place where everyone is free to be themselves and explore new interests and activities. Emily is a graduate of Mercersburg Academy’s Class of 2015, and she is currently a member of the Mercersburg history faculty.

Program Overview

What fun would camp be without campfires, a night of sleeping under the stars, or camp competitions?

It wouldn’t be Adventure Camp, that’s for sure. Every session, campers spend at least one night braving the wild and almost every night singing around the campfire. All campers are divided into two rival teams, the Hurricanes and Tornadoes. Fighting for bragging rights, these two groups face off in competitions such as Camp Wars, Song Battles, and Capture the Flag (to name a few).


OPEN TO: Ages 8-14, coed
