Summer Camp at Cornerstone School, Summit New Jersey

Summertime is a special time of discovery and adventure for children. Nature is in full bloom. Normal routines are on pause. That’s why at Cornerstone, we’ve reinvented summer camp to be a whole new experience for children.

Designed by our teachers, every week is a new theme that promises lots of adventure, fun and learning.

We spend lots of time on our shaded playground enjoying all summer has to offer.

Led by our school year staff!

Our summer camp is particularly unique because every weekly theme has been carefully designed around a curriculum. Our teachers have put as much attention to detail into our summer program as they do to our school-year curriculum. And many of our teachers will be here over the summer!

Weeklong Adventures

Weekly themes that are sure to provide lots of imagination and discovery. Special Guests will join us throughout summer camp! Pick your weeks and choose from three length of day schedules! Early drop off is available.

Please Contact Us if you have any questions.
