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.
The local health department has given us permission to offer our cabins, campsites and RV sites for rental to individual family households and to groups of 10 or less. Maximum cabin occupancy is 10 campers per cabin. Each family or group will be responsible for social distancing while in camp, including at water hydrants and RV dump stations, and groups must disinfect all indoor flat surfaces prior to checkout. The camp will provide cleaning supplies. Cabins, campsites and RV sites can be reserved using our Tentaroo site. The camp is also open for hiking, biking and horseback riding.

Those planning to participate should register as soon as possible!
