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.

Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School is usually offered in mid-July to all parish families. Each year has a different theme with all activities (songs, arts & crafts, skits, stories) coordinating and reinforcing specific messages. Children entering grades K through 4 are invited to participate; students in grades 5 and above serve as assistants to the teachers.
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
Scouting programs are available for students for all students in Saint Agnes Parish.
Boy Scout Troop 111 was originally chartered in 1939, shortly after Saint Agnes Parish was incorporated. Troop 111 averages 60 boys each year, making it one of the largest in the Washington DC area. Troop 111 is very active with monthly outdoor activities and annual camping trips. The Scouts camp each summer at Camp Goshen, a beautiful 4,000-acre camp in the mountains of southwest Virginia. We’re not sure if the boys or the dads have more fun!
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.
