Camp Tuscazoar was founded 100 years ago by Scout leaders who recognized that the beauty and history of the land offered a valuable place for boys to learn, grow and become young men. Today, Camp Tuscazoar continues to serve scouts and other youth organizations under the guidance of the Camp Tuscazoar Foundation, an Ohio non-profit corporation. Camp Tuscazoar remains a popular outdoor location, drawing large numbers of weekend campers and hikers each year.

We have signed a contract to begin construction, but help is still needed! The Camp Tuscazoar Foundation is raising funds to construct another stockade, complete with a crossover bridge, during the camp’s 100th anniversary in 2020.
As part of Camp Tuscazoar’s centennial celebration, a collection of 100 historic sites throughout camp have been identified and marked with a unique sign. During 2020, camp visitors are encouraged to hike to many or all of these sites to learn more about the camp’s rich history.
In our jam-packed December 2019 BREEZE newsletter, read about the plans for our 100th anniversary celebration, the upcoming Gold Rush Competition, and our Maple Days breakfast. We also recap our American Heritage Merit Badge and Mutty Paws events, review centennial items that are now available and much more!
We’re celebrating Camp Tuscazoar’s 100th anniversary in 2020! Thanks to Brian Quinn, we are offering a “100 Years of Memories” oversized patch. And we’ve added Centennial Caps, Centennial Hiking medallions, a Centennial Patch and hiking sticks as well.
For a limited time, we’re offering patches from our 75th anniversary and 90th anniversary events. All proceeds from the sale of these patches will support our stockade restoration project. Available for only $5 each, while supplies last!
