Camp George Thomas     

SR-940 will be held at beautiful Camp George Thomas , 8 miles west of Apache, Oklahoma on highway 19.  Back in 1911, Baden-Powell began training Scouting's adult leaders by organizing a series of lectures for scouters. He made great strides in the years that followed, culminating in 1919 with the establishment of the first Wood Badge training course. That first course was held at  Gilwell Park, north of London England. Since then every place in the world where the Wood Badge course is presented is temporarily named Gilwell and in the Last Frontier Council, Camp George Thomas has been the site of Gilwell for many years.
