Vacation Garden School inspires children to claim their role as caretakers of water, soil, seed, animals, and harvest. Through hands-on learning, art and story, song and silence, children grow in wonder and skills. Vacation Garden School is offered by the Church of the Good Shepherd, 9 Russell Avenue, Watertown.

Campers (ages 4-7) come from 9:00-11:30 a.m. Each one is paired with a junior counselor buddy, who accompanies them through the week, helping them stay safe, have fun and learn.

Junior Counselors (ages 8-10) come from 8:45-3:00 p.m. After the morning, they reflect on their experience over lunch then head out for a field trip to deepen their learning.

Counselors (ages 11-13) come from 8:45-3:00 p.m. They work in pairs to lead activities and prepare snacks in the morning, reflect over lunch and work on a service project together in the afternoon.

VGS draws on stories and songs about sowing and shepherding from Jewish and Christian traditions.
