Camp Cornerstone in Camden

CAMDEN — Children ages 6-12 can join Camp Cornerstone at Cornerstone Baptist Church for a free week of camp, July 11-15. The days are filled with many fun filled activities. The day starts by gathering around the 12 foot teepee. Campers participate in sports, arts and crafts, singing, Bible lessons, missions, memorizing Bible verses, and tribe quizzing competitions. At the end of each day campers are encouraged to find the answer to a mystery question. This is usually based on the Native American theme. Throughout the day campers earn points for their tribe. “Crossing Angle Falls” should prove to be an exciting contest and the young people might even learn a little Maine geography.

Crafts such as a Native American headdress, woodland moccasins, paper mosaics picture, collage, wind chimes or a planter are sure to be a hit with the campers, but no more so than the electives like BB guns, archery, cooking, scrapbooking, making a birch bark bird or fish puppet. The electives help the campers learn a new skill or develop an old one. During recreation time and lunch campers have fun playing many different games and just hanging out together.

Camp hours are from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. each day. On Sunday, July 17 there is a picnic and closing program for the entire family. Camp Cornerstone strives to provide a well-rounded program that meets the physical, mental, social, and spiritual needs of each child. Camp Cornerstone is in its seventh year of giving back to the community by serving the youth of the community.

Call the church office for a brochure and registration form at 236-0687 or 236-2660. Or download one at cornerstonecamden.org. Camp is held on the grounds of Cornerstone Baptist Church at 164 Cobb Road in Camden.
