Late sign-ups are still available.  Follow the link below to sign-up.  Talk to Monty or Heather if you have questions...and also tell us you have signed up so we can make sure to include you in all of the updates about camp.

Camp Cornerstone is now Horizon.  After many of years of our students going to Cornerstone, we are so excited about the new opportunity this summer to go to Horizon.  The name is different, but it will still be a great week of growing closer to God, growing in God's Word, praise, friends and fun. Same churches. Same location. Mostly the same leadership.

We hope you'll join us for Horizon this year!

Here are some of the details about Horizon:


When: June 23-28, 2024

Who: Current 7th-8th graders

Where: Oklahoma Christian University in Edmond, OK

Cost: $275 (if you sign-up by May 15.  $310 otherwise)

Sign-up Deadline: May 15 / until spots are full


Questions you might ask about Horizon:

Why the new name?  Camp Cornerstone began years ago when a group of youth ministers started having summer camps on the campus of Oklahoma Christian.  The summer of 2023 was the last year for those original youth ministers to be associated with Camp Cornerstone and CampOC.   They asked for us to not use the name Cornerstone, so we have chosen the name Horizon.  Horizon will be a MS & HS camp, but all classes and groups and housing will be separated between MS and HS students.  Worship and meals will be together.  Our church will continue to primarily take middle school students, and Monty and Heather's involvement with Horizon will focus on the middle school students who come to camp. 

What is included in the registration cost? Just about everything.  Camp, travel, food while traveling.  You will need $20 for a key deposit, but you'll get that back, assuming you keep up with your room key. :)  The only other things you might want to have money for is snacks or pizza at camp.  When camp gets closer we will find out the prices for these things and let you know. 

Do I have to pay the full registration cost when my student signs up?  No.  But when you go to the Horizon registration page, you'll need to know about the following options.  You can either:

     1) Pay a deposit of $100 on the Horizon site when you sign-up

     2) Pay the entire $275 on the Horizon site when you sign-up. 


     3) Use the coupon code:  "AM275"  and then just pay our church (via cash or check) for the deposit and final balance. 
         The coupon code will allow you to sign-up on the Horizon site at no cost. 

         Final balance due no later than June 23 when we go to camp. 

         The code basically allows you to pay our church instead of camp...and is a great option if you need flexibility in paying or do not want to
         pay with a credit or debit card.

Can you tell me more details about that #3 option above?  Yes.  We know that coming up with the full amount or $275 can be difficult.  We want to help.  Here are some options:

1) Use the coupon code (AM275) mentioned in option #3 above. This will allow you to sign-up without any cost on the Horizon website.  Then, just pay a deposit of $100, $150  (or another amount) directly to our church.  (Cash or checks (made payable to A&M Church of Christ) can be put it in the Youth Box anytime.)   Unless you make other arrangements with us, the final balance needs to be paid no later than June 23. 

2) Use the coupon code (AM275) mentioned in #3 above, and then talk to Monty or Heather about what works best for your family regarding the registration fee.  If you need a scholarship, extra time, a different amount, etc., let us know.  We can be flexible on the timing and amount of the deposit.

If you have any other questions about the deposit or if you have trouble signing up, let Monty or Heather know.  (If you need scholarship help, talk to Monty or Heather anytime.)


Where will I sleep at night?: Students will stay in Oklahoma Christian dorm rooms. Our youth group students will be staying in rooms together.  Students will need sheets for a twin-bed or a sleeping bag. You may or may not be in the same room as your closest friends (but no worries, you'll see your friends all the time...and you might even make some new friends.)

How will we get to camp?: On the church bus. We'll leave on Sunday, June 23 at

around 7:30am. We will return on Friday, June 28, probably between 7:00 and


What if I don't want to wear my seatbelt on the bus?: You will need to get your

mom or dad to take you to camp. : )


Are there counselors?: Yes, you will have a college-age counselor from our church

or from another church.


Are there alligators?: No. To go to a camp with alligators, please find a church that

goes to Louisiana or Florida for summer camp.


What should I bring?: Bible, towel, personal items, clothing, sheets or a sleeping

bag, pillow, pen, notebook, tennis shoes. A more detailed list will be sent out a

few weeks before camp.


Are cell phones allowed at camp?: No, phones are not to be brought to camp.

This is a camp-wide rule.  You can reach your parents through Monty or Heather's phone if you need to talk to them. They can also talk to you in this way. We're not trying to keep students from talking to their parents, or vice-versa.  We are trying to eliminate problems with 300+ campers who all have their phones. :)

What if I plan on playing pranks on other students at camp?: Pranks, jokes, or anything else that would hurt someone's feelings or damage property are not allowed at camp. We expect students to respect all people and the facilities at OC. If this is going to be a problem, you may need to wait until another year to go to camp...or go to that camp in Louisiana that was mentioned above.


What if I've never been to Horizon before?: Well, you're like the rest of us...becuse Horizon is new this year.  But we have been to Camp Cornerstone many times and it's very, very similar to Horizon.  You're in for an awesome week. The only thing you won't like about Horizon is that our group only goes in middle school and you'll only have two opportunities to go to Horizon. 


Have you ever been to summer camp?: Wait, is this a question for me, or are you asking a person? I am a webpage. I have never been to summer camp. I have never even been to Walmart. I would like to go camp, but no one will take me.


Can I see a video from camp so I can know what it is like?: Yes, we have some great daily videos from Camp Cornerstone 2022 which were made by Ashlyn.  You can see them at the bottom of this webpage.

And here is some extra information to know about camp:

  • Oklahoma Christian University is in Edmond, Oklahoma (just north of Oklahoma City.)

  • We anticipate having around 300 students at Horizon. Most students are from Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. A team of great youth ministers  
        from these states are planning Horizon.

  • There is a webpage which has general info about Horizon if you would
         like to see it.  Here is a link:

  • We'll travel to/from camp in the bus. We will need some parents to go as
        "one-day chaperones" for the trip to camp. (They'll be able to return to
        College Station that same day. Our counselors have to go to camp a day
        early for counselor training meetings. The counselors will take a suburban
        up early; our parents who help us get to camp will bring that suburban back
        to CS and arrive back to town late Sunday night.)

  • We can always use moms or dads who can stay the week of camp and
      help out. Your role will be that of a dorm parent or support staff.  (Or if
      you have medical training, you can be a part of our medical team.) 
      Understand that you'll be going to work and help make camp a better
      place. You will get to see your child some each day, but you will probably
      not be in the same dorm as your child, and you won't get to see them
      all day-every day. This isn't a good role for "helicopter parents"
      (because you would be going to help make camp better for all
      students...not just to help make sure your son/daughter eats all their veggies) but it is a good chance to go to camp with our group. And we
      can't have camp without some extra help from other adults.  Talk to Monty/Heather if you might be able to join us and we'll tell you more.

  • We don't want students to miss camp because of financial reasons. We have a limited number of full and partial scholarships for any

students who would not otherwise be able to go. Let Monty know if you need one of these scholarships.

  • Camp is a great way to grow closer to God and grow closer to other students in our church family.  Connections are made with other students
      through shared experiences and a consistent message of faith in God.  We've been taking students to summer camp for many years, and we
      believe it can make
    a huge impact in their lives. We hope your son/daughter will be able to be a part of Horizon.

If you have more questions, just ask. We hope you can join us for Horizon!
