OA Trail Crew

March 14-17, 2024

Camp Strake
2020 Camp Strake Rd., Coldspring, TX 77331

OA Trail Crew is an opportunity for Arrowmen (ages 14 and older) to provide service to the trails at Camp Strake and establish a bond of brotherhood with fellow Arrowmen. OA Trail Crew is modeled after the National High Adventure Base programs.  It is also an opportunity to learn how to do trail and conservation projects. The trail crew activities develop leadership and planning skills for all those involved through cheerful activities and serves as a method to continue to grow the spirit of the Order of the Arrow. ​
