Grow in faith and friendship. Build virtue. Have some fun!

Quo Vadis Summer Camp is designed for high school guys who want to gain tools for living and praying to lay a solid foundation for their future.

It's five days and four nights at Mount St. Mary's Seminary with Arlington priests and seminarians and religious brothers.

Mornings focus on the spiritual, including Mass and talks, and afternoons are all about sports and games; evening events are a mix. One day there's a pilgrimage to the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes.

This year's theme centers on the JOY witnessed by Mary's Magnificat: “My soul rejoices in the Lord!” As Catholic young men in today's world,  where can we find this joy, and the courage required to live it?

Come to Quo Vadis Camp and find out!
