Mascots during a previous training camp

While it is not uncommon to see Skully roaming around Millersville, don’t be alarmed when campus gets invaded by mascots, August 12-14, as Millersville University hosts the 2011 Keystone Mascots summer camp.

For three days, high school, collegiate, corporate, professional sports and individual mascots will be on campus learning the basics of character development, performance, costume care and cooperative skills. At the conclusion of the camp, on Sunday, August 14, the mascots will perform what they learned during a Lancaster Barnstormers baseball game.

“I’m really looking forward to three days of fun,” said Skully, Millersville’s mascot. “Apparently you can teach an old bird new tricks!”

This year’s camp will be run by Erin Blank, former mascot for the Washington Capitals; George Russo, former mascot for the Florida Panthers; Charlton Jordan, NCAA and minor league sports mascot and other mascot trainers.

Keystone Mascots is a locally run business that provides assistance and services to help mascots become a marketing tool. To learn more, visit Keystone Mascots website.

  1. I liked the pirate. I graduated under the pirate. I don’t like Skully. I don’t care for the trend of Disney-ized (soft & cuddly) characters being forced down our throats of late. If anything a more realistic modernized version of the beloved MU pirate is necessary.
