At Cornerstone, we believe that enrichment should last all summer long! With this in mind, we created programming aimed to reduce the effects of “summer slide.” Summer slide is the tendency for students to lose some academic gains made during the school year during the summer. Stay tuned for 2018 dates to be announced for each summer program.
Summer activities will focus on building a healthy mind, body and spirit in our youth! Activities include: walking club, It’s Lit (book club), yoga, art projects, water games, weekly challenges and much more! Every activity is planned to enhance youths overall wellness.
Focused on identifying, building and strengthening personal leadership skills along with identifying personal gifts through assessments, hands on activities, and service to the community! Once youth have learned how to lead themselves it will be a natural step for them to lead others. Building leadership in our youth is so important to preparing them for a bright future.
Youth learn front and back of the house skills that showcased in a community dinner. Knife skills, flower arranging, serving, place settings and event planning skills are learned through this summer camp. Throughout Cornerstone’s program year, we build on these skills so they stay sharp! This summer camp is a favorite amongst youth and community members.
