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 is why a STEAM based summer experience is the perfect way to spend a summer day. 

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! Special Guests will join us throughout summer camp!

Weeklong Adventures

Each week our camp theme will highlight experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math! Hands-on learning through making and tinkering will be our focus. Check out the descriptions and pick your weeks or joins us for the whole summer.  Pick your weeks and choose from three length of day schedules! Early drop off is available.

Weekly Class Descriptions

Week 1

June 17
Let's Get Cooking

Cornerstone School is filled with delicious aroma’s floating around the school during our first week in camp. Throughout the week our chefs will be exploring the science behind cooking. They will learn how ingredients, once manipulated through mixing and/or change of temperature, change during the cooking process. Texture, consistency, and state of matter will all be observed as our chefs make a variety of kid- friendly foods. Apple dumplings and fruit smoothies are consistently camp favorites and requested each year by our returning campers. Muscle Man Mike will bring his friend Baseball Bobby for a magic filled show about nutrition and exercise.

Week 2

June 24
Music Makers
Do you hear what I hear? On our second week of camp, our campers dance to the beat of their very own self-created instruments while simultaneously taking care of our environment by using recycled materials. Campers will immerse themselves into various genres of music, discover how sound travels and investigate the effects of vibrations. We will dance, sing and create with music as our inspiration. Singer and songwriter Big Jeff will entertain us with a camp-wide song fest.
