Summer Camps

Summer Camps

Messiah University conducts a wide variety of athletic and academic summer camps.  Conducting a successful summer camp requires partnerships between the camps and the Office of Human Resources & Compliance to ensure that all camps are properly approved and following appropriate policies and procedures to ensure compliance.

To that end, information provided on the pages below will provide guidance toward ensuring compliance.  The below resources are for both Directors and Counselors.

If you have questions or need assistance:

  • Academic Camps -- contact the Academic Camp Director or the Office of Human Resources & Compliance.
  • Athletic Camps -- please contact the Athletic Camp Director or the Athletic Office. You may visit and select “Camps” for further assistance.

Camp Directors:

Directors will organize the camp, hire Camp Counselors, and work with the Office of Human Resources & Compliance and the Payroll Office in managing hiring, onboarding and payment processing of Camp Counselors. If you are a Camp Director, please click on the Camp Directors link above for more information.

Camp Counselors:

Camp Counselors will help teach, train, monitor and chaperone the camp attendees. Camp Counselors must complete all necessary hiring paperwork, background clearances, and special compliance training before they begin their first day of work.
