Camp Strake

History

Camp Strake has a full conference center, an expansive Boy Scout Camp and Cub World. Nestled in tall timbers, Cub World is a young boy's adventure dream come true. In addition to getting a chance to explore a pirate ship and raft to Huck Finn Island, Cub Scouts and their families can spend a weekend with mother nature as deer, raccoons, armadillos, alligators and dozens of varieties of birds and animals make their home in this beautiful refuge. There is no cost for unit camping and several hundred scouts take advantage of the opportunity each weekend throughout the fall and spring.

The George Strake District has a very strong history of other fun-filled, exciting program events like Cub Scout Day Camp, where over 580 district Cubs come together daily for one week to enjoy archery, arts and crafts, BB guns, nature hikes and other program features. Another key program element is Winter Camp held at Camp Strake. In 1998 more than 600 Scouts from 61 Troops attended and had the opportunity to work on 60 different merit badges taught by experienced counselors. There are also training sessions offered for leaders to help them with things like Youth Protection, program planning and advancement.

Camp Strake and the George Strake District are named for a philanthropic oilman who, among other generous contributions to the BSA, donated the land for this magnificent camp. In 2005 over 83,000 nights were camped in Camp Strake making it the most camped at Scout camp in the nation.
