Summer Camp

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.
