- The 9th through 12th grade program will be provided by Ruah Woods, a non-profit organization in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati that is dedicated to spreading the message of St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. The theme for the teen programming will be “In the cool of the day,” with a special focus on the first three chapters of Genesis and the Song of Songs. The students will discover God’s plan for life and love, as well as participate in skits, games and other fun, engaging activities!
- The 4th through 8th grade program will be provided by a team of clergy and teen missionaries from ECYD, which is a Catholic association of adolescents who make a pledge of friendship with Christ and with each other to build up a new world according to the Gospel. You can get a glimpse of ECYD through this video about their 2017 summer camps:
- The 3-year-old through 3rd grade children will participate in Growing with the Saints program: The Vatican Express with St. Jerome. The creative grade-appropriate lessons are based on Sacred Scripture and Catholic Tradition and the Doctors of the Church. Each day children will listen to the story of Saint Jerome and his friends, Lion & Donkey. Jerome was given the enormous task of translating the Holy Bible into a language the people could understand. Children will participate in a variety of drama skits, role-play, games and Bible verse memory activities. Easy-to-make crafts will reflect what they are learning.
