Summer Camp

explore, experiment and create this summer!

Junior Camp at Cornerstone offers many of the same activities as Camp Cornerstone but on a level suited for our younger campers. Campers ages 4 - 6 will play, create and explore through a series of science experiments, arts and crafts and hands-on activities. With full-day and half-day camp available, our innovative, 6-week, STEM-based program focuses on nurturing new and seasoned friendships while experiencing the outdoors. Weekly themed activities and Wednesday water days (weather permitting) provide campers an equal balance of outdoor fun and cool learning experiences.

Junior Camp at 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!
