Normally, we would host our annual Golf Classic to raise funds for Mercy's Tuition Assistance Program in June. Due to COVID-19, however, we had to cancel the scramble; but we are not giving up! Mercy needs you now more than ever.
Play a round of golf in honor of our Mercy students. Then, show your Mercy pride by donating your score to Mercy. For example, if you shoot an 85, donate $85 online, write a check, or Venmo @mercy-academy.
For questions or ways to sponsor Mercy's Golf 4 Good, email Leslie Hibdon.
Mercy understands the importance of camp offerings for families as you look for ways to keep your children active and engaged over the summer. While our in-person camps are canceled for June, Mercy is offering some FREE virtual camp options for anyone who would like to participate. Some of our camps will be rescheduling an in-person camp for a date in the fall/winter. We hope your daughters and sons will join us!
Please register online so instructors know how many campers to expect. It will also provide us with your email so we can send you the Zoom login information.
July camps are PENDING. We will continue to evaluate conditions and guidelines daily. We will make a July camp announcement as soon as we can.
REFUNDS: We will also be working over the next several weeks to provide refunds for those camps that are canceled. Those refunds will be put back onto the original form of payment when possible. We will be in touch with you if you have registered for camps that are being rescheduled for a future date. It is our hope that the rescheduled date works for you and your family. If it doesn't we will provide you with a full refund.Click here to register.
