What makes Messiah athletic camps unique? (continued)

Personalized instruction:

Basketball camp

"Messiah's basketball camp has some of the best instruction around, and I was able to improve my basketball skills as well as the confidence I needed to perform at the next level. Receiving encouragement from my squad leader helped me to gain more confidence, which in turn improved my playing."

—Katherine Kalb '09, athlete on Messiah women's basketball team and former camper

We offer an 8 to 1 camper-to-staff ratio, which means there is a lot of interaction between the campers and staff both on and off the field.

—Geoff Weisenborn, Messiah men's head lacrosse coach and director of boys' lacrosse camp

What makes Messiah's girls' basketball camp unique is the individual care and nurturing from our staff, positive reinforcement, and emphasis on long-term improvement.

—Mike Miller '83, Messiah women's head basketball coach and director of girls' basketball camp

Our camps are unique due to the high standard of coaching and care expected out of the staff. We ask our coaches to approach each session with enthusiasm and energy that you don't find at other camps.

—Brad McCarty ’93, Messiah men's head soccer coach and director of boys' soccer camp

Encouragement to develop values as well as athletic skills:

The transformations we see in our campers are beyond normal strength and physical growth. They develop a better understanding of the game and more advanced fundamentals that will separate them from their peers.

—Mike Miller '83, Messiah women's head basketball coach and director of girls' basketball camp

By the end of the week each camper has a newly gained confidence in herself and the desire to challenge herself and master the skills she has learned. The girls return each year eager to learn more and reconnect with friends they made from the year before and the counselors. They are also inspired to teach their teammates back home what they have learned.

—Ruth Ness, Messiah women's assistant lacrosse coach

Sportsmanship and teamwork was stressed every day during the camp, and with the increased focus on these areas, I was more apt to pay attention to them and build these qualities for the future.

—Katherine Kalb '09, athlete on Messiah women's basketball team and former camper

As Christians we are called to be a part of a community based on love and respect, and we strive to create that environment here at Messiah.

—Brad McCarty ’93, Messiah men's head soccer coach and director of boys' soccer camp
