  Our Approach

In lieu of a traditional Vacation Bible School model, the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd at All Saints offers week-long half-day summer sessions for toddlers (18 to 36 months),  pre-school age children (3 to 6 years) and lower elementary age children in grades 1-3 (6-9 years). 

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Montessori Atrium Camp

The themes covered expand upon and incorporate presentations from the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd curriculum offered on Sunday mornings and in our weekday parent-toddler and after-school programs.  The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a Montessori approach to children's formation, which is developmentally appropriate, child focused and holistic. The atrium at All Saints is ecumenical and welcomes children from all faith backgrounds.


Children will spend time outside daily in our newly renovated courtyard and garden. Children are group into four separate groups by age. Each group will be offered developmentally appropriate activities and help prep healthy snack daily.
