Academic Camp Activities

Daily Mentoring Sessions: Students learn character education, team building, and community service in a small group setting with an adult mentor. Mentors serve as advocates for success for each student.

Community Life Skills: Residential students participate in a Life Skills program, concentrating on the skills needed to succeed in a boarding community, such as living away from home, living with a roommate, and how to keep a clean room. 

Activities: Basketball, soccer, tennis, Frisbee, swimming, art, nature/conservation activities, and community service activities.

Weekend Activities: Students enjoy theme parks such as Busch Gardens, Kings Dominion Theme Park, Massanutten Water Park and Hershey Park, as well as national and state parks in the local area. On the weekend between the two-week sessions, four-week campers normally take an overnight trip, which in the past has included trips to Kitty Hawk, NC or Colonial Williamsburg/Virginia Beach, VA. 

Academic Field Trips: During the week, students may visit area museums and attractions, such as Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum, the Air Force Memorial, and/or the Marine Corps Museum.
