For those who are interested, after registration we will get you in charge of one of the moms who is coordinating food so you don't have to bring every meal.


Bring your own tent. There are 55 acres, so lots of space to socially distance.

What is Camp Castleton?

For Boys from

2nd-12th Grade


All Dads are Welcome!

Dads must come if

their Son is 9 years or younger 

Camp Castleton is the main site for Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC’s ECYD weekend camps throughout the year, including events for boys and girls in middle school, high school, fathers and sons and Families. There are also camps during the summer. Each year around 250 youth venture out Castleton, VA, to experience the Catholic faith in a new and powerful way.

The objective of the Camp Castleton is that of ECYD: to help the youth grow in their friendship with Christ and leave inspired to serve God and their neighbor in concrete ways.  At the camp, the boys and girls are put on teams and compete in various sports, games, and challenges.  But an even greater emphasis is given to virtuous acts to help motivate the kids to live the themes being proposed for that particular camp: charity, perseverance, honesty, teamwork, faith, or others.  The sacraments of mass and confession are offered each day, along with adoration, gospel reflections, and talks by the priests, brothers, missionaries, and counselors.
