Cornerstone Christian Academy Will Host 2024’s Most Unique, Educational, Exciting and Affordable Summer Camps in the Houston Area

What are your plans for your kids this summer? If you’re like the majority of us, your career won’t stop, but school will. During the upcoming scalding months at home, many children will spend their days motionless, dividing their attention between two screens: the television and a video game.

As a parent, you have the opportunity to choose something different for your child this summer. In a few short months, your K-8th grader could be learning how to build robots, playing volleyball, attending VBS, taking cooking classes with a former Executive Chef, or learning financial literacy through fun, real-life simulations!

Katy and Fort Bend Christian Magazines have tracked down the most interesting, stimulating and affordable summer camp programs for Houston-area children this summer. We’ve found them at Cornerstone Christian Academy (CCA).

CCA understands that no two children are similar. That’s why, this June, CCA will offer a wide array of summer camps, carefully crafted to fit the interests of your unique child. Does your little one want to be a farmer? Travel the world? Build a food truck? Learn to golf, or to fence? Or, perhaps you want to prepare your child for real-life issues like learning financial literacy and avoiding the pitfall of debt. CCA has you and your child’s interests covered.

Registration is now open, so act quickly! These affordable summer camps, historically, fill up rapidly. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite CCA Summer Camp picks for June 2024. This list by no means encompasses all of the summer camps CCA provides. For a full list of activities, visit this link
