Summer Academy: June 22- July 18, 2014
A four-week, for-credit summer school for students entering grades 7-12. This structured program combines engaging, teacher-intensive classroom work with fun activities that open new horizons to young people – all in a safe, well-supervised environment. Day and boarding programs exist for male students, while female students enroll as day students.

Confidence Camp: July 6-12, 2014
MMA’s Confidence Camp helps boys 8-11 develop a sense of pride in them¬selves and their accomplishments. Focusing on good decision-making and teamwork exercises, the one-week program rewards young men for their progress.

Leadership Camp: July 6-18, 2014
Young men ages 12-17 find new challenges at the two-week Leadership Camp. The program teaches boys to follow as well as to lead, as it helps them to understand the benefits and responsibilities of being a leader. Physical training helps participants unlock their potential, and team-building courses help them to work better alongside their peers.

Director of Summer Programs LTC Greg Seibert, who leads the summer program at MMA and also serves as the Commandant of Cadets during the academic year, hints at an action-filled experience for the summer camps: “This is a great experience for any boy or young man who wants to push himself and grow as a leader. We’ll have fun, too – paintball, rappelling, high ropes, and swimming are just a few of the many activities at both camps.”

For the first time, families can purchase MMA summer camp gift certificates. In anticipation of the holiday season, the Academy is offering a $100 camp discount to those who purchase gift certificates before December 31.
