Serving Youth and Families
St. Agnes School Summer Camp
Camps are one week each and include topics such as cooking, sports, chocolate, field trips to Washington DC, water week, and arts & crafts. Special camps are held for children entering Pre-K and Kindergarten, giving the youngest students an opportunity to become familiar with teachers and classmates prior to starting the school year.

CYO Sports Program
The Northern Virginia Junior Catholic Youth Organization (NVJ CYO) offers a number of sports programs for parish youth. St. Agnes’ main program is basketball. Currently, St. Agnes sponsors teams for girls and boys in grades 4-8, who play other Catholic schools from December through March. Information about CYO basketball is advertised in the Sunday bulletin. Look for it in early fall.
Boy Scouts Troop 111
Boy Scout Troop 111 was originally chartered in 1939, shortly after Saint Agnes Parish was incorporated, and is believed to be the oldest Catholic-sponsored Troop in the Arlington Diocese. The Troop currently (mid-2010′s) averages between 80 and 105 Scouts each year, making it the largest Catholic-sponsored Troop in Arlington County as well as one of the larger Troops inside the Capital Beltway. The Troop annually offers many campouts, outdoor activities, and service projects. Meetings are held in the Parish Center on Monday nights 7:00 to 8:30, from early September til late June, and sporadically over the summer. Extensive additional information, including contact information, is available on the Troop website, at: http://troop111.org/
Girl Scouts provide cookie sales, support for troops overseas, and food for those in need. The Girl Scouts also provide babysitting services during after-hours school events, such as back-to-school night and parent-teacher conferences. Local field trips include visits to the Supreme Court and Kennedy Center as well as traditional camping trips.
Saint Agnes is the patron saint of Girl Scouts. She embodied many of the qualities that Girl Scouts try to cultivate: courage, honesty, respect for oneself and for others, service to God and to neighbor.
