Young Adult Camping Trip

Young adults (ages 21-39), both single and married, are invited on a camping trip over Columbus Day Weekend. Fr. David Dufresne, parochial vicar of the Basilica of Saint Mary, will provide retreat meditations and offer Sunday Mass.

Married couples will stay inside the 12-person Schairer Trail Center, 1474 Collie Crest Drive, Elkton, VA 22827. Single men and women will camp in separate tent clusters near the cabin. There are no shower facilities, so please plan accordingly. There is an outhouse on site. For more information on the location:

The location is near the Eaton Hollow Overlook off Skyline Drive, approximately 6 miles south of the Swift Run Gap Entrance Station. Because parking is limited, attendees are highly encouraged to carpool.

Attendees are welcome to drive down after work on Friday, October 5th. A tentative time to depart is noon on Sunday, October 7th.

The deadline to register is Friday, September 28th at 11:59 pm.

Food: The parish will cover the cost of meats for main courses. Attendees are expected to bring side dishes and snacks, and provide for their own special dietary needs.

Cost: $15 (to cover the cost of reserving the cabin and meats for meals).
