Nestled in the Piney Woods of East Texas lies 2,175 acres of a great camping experience located 40 miles north of Houston and just south of Conroe in Montgomery County on I-45. Camp Strake was acquired in 1942 and dedicated in March, 1944 honoring George and Susan Strake who paid off the note of the purchase of the land. This property has many sections and is used for multiple purposes. It provides for Cub Scout weekend camping at the Janis and George Fleming Cub World, Boy Scout and Venturing weekend camping activities at Deer Lake and Grand Lake. Training for Scout leaders and outside groups at Hart Kuester Lodge, Seton Training Site and The Conference Center. This is a year-round camp which accommodates all camping seasons.

There are modern restroom and shower facilities centrally located throughout the camp. The many activity areas available at Cub World ensure a fun filled weekend chock full of lasting memories.
