We are excited to announce that new Camp Strake will open for summer camp 2020. Weeks one through five are full; weeks six and seven are open for registration. Summer camp is a week-long council-organized overnight camp for Scouts BSA that operates under council-retained leadership. The program provides opportunities for Scouts to earn merit badges along their advancement trail. Camp Strake is located on more than 2,800 acres between New Waverly and Coldspring, Texas near the community of Evergreen, Texas. Lake Livingston is 10 miles east of the property. The camp is a 1.5-hour drive from downtown Houston. The camp is surrounded on three sides by the Sam Houston National Forest and has the Lone Star Hiking Trail close to one corner of the Camp property. Camp Strake will be a first-class and state-of-the-art facility for Scouts and their leaders and will have 20 campsites with pavilions and an air-conditioned dining hall, a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) center, 28-acre lake, aquatics center with a swimming pool and pool house, extensive trail system, basketball court, sports fields and several chapels.
Activities will include shooting sports (rifle, shotgun, archery, sporting arrows), Wild Hex (aerial adventure tower), zip lines, climbing, rappelling, COPE, biking and more. The Camp Strake facilities have been designed and built to meet both ADA and ScoutsBSA requirements for both girl and boy units concurrently. The program will include an extensive merit badge program as well as some more challenging activities like zip-lining and climbing. The full program will be published in the online leader’s guide that will be available in November. To follow the progress of construction, visit www.shac.org/strake.
