Camp Crooked Creek is located with the Harry S. Frazier Jr., Scout Reservation and is one of the PREMIER Scout camps in the region.
The camp features 1,000 acres of rolling hills covered with a hardwood forest of oak, hickory and beech trees along with the 70-acre John Barr lake and over ten miles of hiking trails.
The reservation also contains various areas to accommodate groups year-round.
We’re continually surveying Troops for what they want in a summer camp and have come up with programming that, we feel, meets the needs of both younger and older Scouts. Here are just a few of the options Scouts have:
C.O.P.E. (High Ropes Course)
For weeks 4 & 5, we are now offering a Frontier Program.
The Frontier Program is a unique experience for youth and Adults in Scouts BSA. It expands on First Class Skills taking them to the next level while adding some advanced survival skills such as wild edibles, tracking, shelter building, and leatherworking. The program transports you back to the frontier of the 1700s, tales are told of those rugged Frontiersmen and the deeds associated with them. Participants learn frontier skills while at the same time making it’s enjoyable by letting them take the reigns of how and when they complete requirements. The program reaches its zenith on Thursday when participants who have completed all requirements for a rank/trek or have previously earned a rank/trek head out to The Rendezvous, where everyone is transported back to the old frontier with authentic garb and no modern comforts (Daniel Boone didn’t have a flashlight after all). For over 40 years the program has been running strong in Ohio, and it is with great excitement that we can now share this program at Camped Crooked Creek. We encourage you to check out The Frontier Scouts program for yourself
