The fun HAS been extended!!!
The Cornerstone School has decided to offer two additional weeks of camp this year due to many county schools pushing the start dates of school back to the end of August. Campers ages 4 - 13 can register for our two all new weeks of camp.
July 27th - 31st - Medieval Times
August 3rd - 7th - Pirates Adventure
As satisfied as we are with our current programming, there will be some slight alterations to our camp day. We feel strongly as educators that, with students spending extended time outside the classroom and as we move camp into August, we need to start adding some more academic opportunities back into our day. We will be replacing some of our outside activities with a one hour block to the camp day, which we will use to incorporate our weekly theme through age-appropriate, educational activities. This will include time for reading, research projects and additional STEM activities.
We will still have dodge ball, gaga ball, and plenty of outdoor time. We view this as an opportunity to lightly prepare your students for reentering the classroom in the fall. We hope that these changes will be enjoyable for your camper and will help them start to prepare for the start of school.
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.
Camp opens June 8th

Camp Cornerstone Weekly Themes
robopalooza - Has Moved to July 20-24
We've gone crazy for robots! Campers will investigate computer programming through LEGO robotics EV3 kits. In addition, we have added Harvard's Root Robot to our itinerary. Campers will also learn to program simple directional movements and focus on implementing sensors and program loops in multiple skills challenges throughout the week.
Week 2: June 8 - 12, nature allies
Come join us for this ALL-NEW week of camp as we learn about the science of the natural world around us. We will have animal visitors from local zoos and the Bark Bus. We will also use microscopes to explore plants, bugs, and other items we find in nature. Smokey the Bear will visit to talk about forest fires, prescribed fires, and demonstrate the tools they use to fight and control fire in the forest.
Week 3: June 15 - 19, Cornerstone Summer Olympics
Celebrate the 2020 Summer Olympic Games with us as we create and participate in our own events. We will also explore our heart and lungs, learn about our bones and muscles, and more! Are you ready to represent your country in the Cornerstone Summer Games?
CAMP CLOSED June 29 – July 3
Camp Cornerstone will be closed during this week to celebrate the nation's birthday and to give our counselors a little break from the heat.
Week 5: July 6 - 10, CONSTRUCTION ROYALE
Week has no remaining seats
In this week we build our forts and marshmallow shooters over the week, and we end it in a marshmallow battle royale. This week includes other smaller building projects and is one of our most popular weeks every year.
