COVID-19 update for Psychology Camp

Update 5/1/2020

Due to Covid-19 we have decided to move the 2020 Psychology Camp online. We believe this is our best course of action to keep our students safe, while still providing a meaningful learning experience. As such, we have lowered the tuition to $150. 

Campers will:

  • learn from Messiah College faculty (published researchers and practicing clinical psychologists),
  • explore their own ideas about psychology and biopsychology,
  • discuss topics related to stress and health, and
  • engage in other exciting activities.

If you have previously signed up for the residential camp and would prefer a full refund, please email us at before June 1st. Please note that refunds will be processed immediately, but may take several days to be completed.

Thank you for your understanding, we are working to make sure the 2020 Psychology Camp is successful, safe, and exciting for students.

2020 Dates: June 21-25!! Facebook
