Nestled in the Piney Woods of East Texas, Camp Strake is located 40 miles north of Houston and just south of Conroe, Texas in Montgomery County. Camp Strake was acquired in 1942, and covers 2,175 acres. In March 1944, the camp was dedicated and named in honor of George and Susan Strake, who paid off the note for the purchase of the land. This property has many sections and is used for multiple purposes. Camp Strake has facilities available for Cub Scout weekend camping at the Janis and George Fleming Cub World and Boy Scout and Venturing weekend camping activities at Grand Lake. Training for Scout leaders and outside groups are held at Hart Kuester Lodge, Seton Training Site and the Conference Center.
Camp Strake is moving to a rural site in the Sam Houston National Forest, between New Waverly and Coldspring near the community of Evergreen in order to create a 21st century Scouting experience for Scouts and their leaders.
The current location of Camp Strake is closing on December 31, 2014.
