Celebrate Summer Parking Lot Party

Celebrate Summer Parking Lot Party
Thursday, June 21st, Afternoon into Evening

Thursday, June 21st is a big day in Montclair!

  • Montclair High School Graduation!
  • Last day of school for Montclair public schools!
  • Montclair Makes Music Day!
  • First official day of Summer!

To celebrate all of these wonderful things, we’ll be closing off the parking lot at Cornerstone Montclair in the afternoon so people can stop by for games, refreshments or just to hang out.

The Project Graduation buses carrying all of the graduating seniors from MHS roll through town Thursday night, right by Cornerstone Montclair, usually around 9:00pm.  We’ll be open late that night, and everyone is welcome to cheer on the graduates from our parking lot.  

In addition, as a part of Make Music Montclair Day we have a musician playing outside at Cornerstone Montclair from 7-8pm, and maybe others joining us earlier in the evening.


ART IN motion Camp

Art in Motion Camp at Cornerstone Montclair
July 9th – 20th, 9:30 AM – 1:45 PM, Ages 8-10

For active learners, Art in Motion is a new interdisciplinary camp that encourages children of all abilities to explore kinetic art and creative movement in a dynamic and inclusive environment. Offered in partnership with the NJAPE.org Inclusive Movement Center at Cornerstone Montclair,

This camp develops physical and creative thinking skills through imaginative play. Each day, campers will spend half their time in the fitness center designing and completing obstacle courses, navigating overhead challenges such as ropes, zip lines, and swings, or climbing on the rock wall while enhancing their problem-solving, motor planning, and cooperative team abilities.

The rest of their time is spent in the studio with a MAM educator translating movement into visual art by creating kinetic sculptures, gestural drawings, action paintings, and moving mobiles. At the end of the session, campers will display their artistic creations and demonstrate their physical accomplishments at a closing reception for friends and families.
