OA Trail Crew is an opportunity for Arrowmen 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. ​

Arrowmen will work on the building the five-mile loop trail that will be used by Scouts who camp at Camp Strake from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm. The evenings will be filled with fun activities, teamwork and fellowship. Trail work makes Arrowmen hungry so there will be great meals prepared to enjoy and help the Arrowmen get reenergized. The work and fellowship are a lot of fun especially if you bring a fellow Arrowmen from your troop or chapter to enjoy the shared experience.
