Summer Camp

IMMERSE YOUR CHILD IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS THIS SUMMER!

Camp Cornerstone offers a mix of archery, arts and crafts, science experiments, robots and more to keep your camper engaged during summer break. Our innovative, 6-week, STEM-based camp program focuses on nurturing new and seasoned friendships while experiencing all that nature has to offer. Weekly themed activities and Wednesday water days (weather permitting) provide students an equal balance of outdoor fun and cool learning experiences. Campers ages 6 - 12 are invited to explore, learn and play with us! Camp days are from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., with camper drop off from 8:30-9:00 a.m. and camper pickup from 4:00-4:30 p.m.

Camp Cornerstone also incorporates the Tribes Program, which is built on team relationships and is used to resolve any conflicts that may arise. The Tribes Program further promotes the growth of positive relationships and creates a pattern of interaction that builds on the four agreements 1) attentive listening, 2) appreciations/no put downs, 3) the right to participate/the right to pass, and 4) mutual respect.

We look forward to seeing everyone this summer!
