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!
Find answers to our most frequently asked questions here:
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
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
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
