Summer Tower Page - Cadet Rappelling

Welcome to the Midwest's biggest, baddest backyard

This ain’t a video game. It’s the real deal – 288 acres of woods, fields, rocks, creeks and ponds are here to be explored and enjoyed. And our military-trained leaders are here to show your son the ropes at our military-inspired summer camps!

Send your son for MMA for his summer's greatest adventure.


“Everett can't stop talking about how much he loved MMA! Thank you for what you do, and helping my son develop into a leader and a disciplined young man. I'm sure it won't be the last you see of us!” — Jennifer Ley, mother of a camper.
