FAQ 
Find answers to our most frequently asked questions here:

Why order from Growing with the Saints?
Our Catholic Kidz Camps are written from start to finish by Catholics for Catholics. They are NOT derivatives of Protestant programs like Our Sunday Visitor/Group, and Liguori/Gospel Light Publishers. We celebrate the richness of our faith given to us by Jesus and handed down by his apostles. The role of the Church is missionary therefore, we lead children closer to God through the Church that HE established through His Son Jesus Christ. We follow the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Holy Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and the lives and teaching of the saints to call children to holiness. We include a Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, and a Closing Assembly Celebration. Why settle for anything less than 100 percent Catholic? BE BOLD…BE CATHOLIC!

Do your programs have an Imprimatur?
Yes! All of our Catholic programs have been granted an Imprimatur from one of the following bishops: John M. D’Arcy or Kevin C. Rhoades of the Fort Wayne-South Bend Diocese, or William L. Higi of the Diocese of Lafayette. Our programs have been embraced, recommended and endorsed by priests, parents, and religious educators throughout the country.

What Bible translation do you use?
We utilize the NRSV, New Revised Standard Version.

Will your programs work for a large enrollment?
Absolutely! Because our programs are designed with separate Pull and Go sections which include Faith Lessons, Bible, Games/Activities, Craft, and Snack stations that are all reproducible within your parish, set up is a SNAP for large or small parishes!

Can your programs be utilized for something other than a week long summer camp?
Our programs have been used for weekend retreats, monthly celebrations as an effort to link school families and PSR families, Feast Day celebrations, special clubs, RCIA, Adult Formation, and as valuable resource material for teachers and catechists throughout the year. The possibilities are limitless.

I prefer multi-age groupings so will your program work for my parish?
Yes, and very easily! Simply choose the grade-level you feel would be most beneficial to all participants. Again, because our programs are in a Pull and Go station format and reproducible, multi-age grouping are not a problem.

Are the Music CDs reproducible?
Because of many requests for top-notch Praise and Worship music along with tunes the little ones can enjoy GWTS responded by teaming-up with acclaimed recording artists. Partnering with these admired professionals requires payment for mechanical licenses and royalty fees. Reproducing CDs is not only illegal, it financially hurts our ministry. Producing quality music is expensive. Please support our ministry by purchasing the Music CDs.

What do you mean by One Complete Program-No more Starter Kits?
If you have purchased from other publishers you have discovered a wide assortment of recommended add-on materials to implement the program. These items along with unnecessary “bells and whistles” are very costly and will more than double or triple the initial cost of the program. Our Catholic Kidz Camp programs do not require that you purchase supplementary items. Simply put, GWTS is the most cost effective program you will find. We do offer saint books, and Music CDs to be enjoyed long after the program is over as a means of evangelization for family and friends.

Do you include craft supplies?
No programs include craft supplies. We do include craft templates, colored photos of completed crafts, and a master supply list. The crafts are themed based and celebrate our Catholic identity. Supplies can be found easily at local craft stores.
