Troop 500 Summer Camps

Past and Future


2024: Camp Strake

Troop 500 is making it's first trip to Camp Strake, a facility on 2,816 acres surrounded on three sides by Sam Houston National Forest. Come back in July for photos of our latest adventure!


2023: Lost Pines

With 542 acres, Lost Pines is on the northern shore of Lake Bastrop. Home to the tallest climbing tower in Texas, our Scouts spent hours sailing, fishing, shooting, and sweating...but we loved it! This summer we camped at Provisional, a great location close to the chow hall.


2023: Philmont

In 2023, some of our Scouts did a High Adventure trek at Philmont Scout Ranch. With more than 214 square miles, the Scouts and Leaders spent a week backpaking through the rugged northern New Mexico wilderness.

2022: Lost Pines

Troop 500 went to Lost Pines in 2022. Camping at Fish, we were pleased to find the bath/restroom facilties at that site were back in operation, newly remodeled. Another great summer of memories.


2021: Camp Karankawa

Our first summer camp after Covid, Camp Karankawa, near Mathis, Texas is adjacent to Lake Corpus Christi. Unfortunately, due to the challenges of post-Covid, the aquatics program wasn't able to operate that session so we had to sweat it out without use of the lake or pool and none of the usual canoeing and sailing programs. Even so, we made the best of things and were glad to be back to Scouting after a year of Zoom meetings!


2020: "Camp Covid"

The summer of 2020, during Covid, we camped in our own in our backyards if we camped at all. Boo. But at least we'll have stories to tell our grandkids someday of the year we spent at home... and learned about Zoom meetings!

Prepared for Life!
