Camp Tuscazoar was founded more than a century 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.
Join us on October 3 as we officially re-open Camp Tuscazoar’s Centennial Trail. The trail now features new metal signs and signposts, thanks to the generous support of the Tuscarawas County CVB. Light refreshments will be served.
Scouts of all levels are invited to earn Signs, Signals & Codes Merit Badge. This merit badge covers several nonverbal ways we communicate: emergency signaling, Morse code, American Sign Language, braille, trail signs, sports officiating hand signals, traffic signs, secret codes and more. Registration info was updated on Sept. 5.
