The Cornerstone Fellowship, generously funded by the AVI CHAI Foundation, promotes Jewish culture change at camp by offering Jewish educational training to exemplary returning bunk staff and professional development to camp leaders. Now in its ninth year, the program empowers counselors to play a larger creative role in Jewish programming and employs leading experiential Jewish educators to deliver a cutting-edge training experience at a four-day seminar.
At this seminar, 400 fellows come together for workshops, song sessions and campfires to learn not only from our seasoned faculty, but also from each other. Fellows share “magic” and ideas between camps, creating a new type of camp community. To date, Cornerstone has trained over 1600 counselors from dozens of camps.
Cornerstone also offers an important professional development opportunity for senior camp staff supervising counselors' progress throughout the program. Both fellows and senior camp staff are supported by a faculty advisor, who provides coaching throughout the summer so that visions and action plans can be implemented successfully.
The 2013 Cornerstone Seminar will take place on May 20-23, 2013 at Capital Camps in Waynesboro, PA.
