Over the Summer, many parents send their military high school students to summer camp so that they can stay active and productive during their break from school. Compared to other Summer camps, Massanutten’s Summer STAR programs are one-of-a-kind! Our Summer STAR Programs offer flexible summer camp options that allow students to reach for the stars, while having fun. The STAR Programs are designed to help your students Strive and Thrive while gaining academic Achievement and Reinforcing their core studies.
At Massanutten Military Academy, we provide young people enjoyable, fun summer experiences, as well as valuable lessons in leadership, history, and character development. We offer several programs to meet your student’s needs:
- High School JROTC Leadership Program
- High School Academic Program
- Middle School Academic Program
- Colonel’s Camp
The programs are all-inclusive with boarding and day-student options. While our summer programs help to ensure cadets learn and achieve their potential, below are some of the exciting activities they will get to participate in:
Our activities often tie into our students’ curriculum, helping to reinforce the knowledge they’ve learned. Trips to the numerous museums in Washington D.C. will allow the students to leave the classroom and learn about the various aspects of our nation’s technological, artistic and governmental history, with the various exhibits we visit carefully selected to reflect the current topics in their studies. However, not all of our field trips will be completely educational. We will also be taking fun-filled trips to one of Virginia’s best amusement parks, Kings Dominion, where cadets will enjoy time with their classmates outside of their studies.
Sports and Recreation
While on campus, students will also have plenty of time outside of class. Our summer camp includes sports and other outdoor activities that will keep active and social while they are away from their studies. These include whitewater rafting and laser tag, which we consider fun ways to promote friendship and teamwork!
