Welcome to Camp Strang. Owned and operated by the Housatonic Council B.S.A., it’s located in the foothills of Litchfield County. Strang Scout Reservation’s 186 acres of forests, fields and streams provide the backdrop to an exciting Scouting experience. Strang Scout Reservation offers a diverse program for Scouts of all ages.
The summer 2020 camp activities include: STEM Center, Radio-Controlled Cars, Night Climbing, Welding, Crate Stacking, Nine-Square in the Air, Gaga Pit and Adventure to Eagle Week with Eagle Required Merit Badges and Seminars on how to plan a project.
MERIT BADGES: The core of the scout’s week at camp is the opportunity for advancement through earning merit badges, and completing requirements for rank advancement. There are five sessions for scheduled merit badge classes per day with opportunities for others during free time.
