The Diocese of Arlington's Catholic Campout 2021 will feature an opportunity for scouting and adventure youth groupings and families to come together for a weekend of fun and faithful fellowship. Options to participate:

  • All weekend: Campout under the stars on Friday and/or Saturday night
  • Attend Saturday only
  • Attend Mass late Saturday afternoon


Due to COVID-19 we are waiting to release more information about the event and registration so that we do not have to constantly revise.

Registration may be done either as FAMILY or UNIT. You must also register if you will attend only the evening Mass.
