All different, yet all interconnected. The common thread: each started
with an idea. Then people spent time applying science and experience,
developing and analyzing and testing ways to make that idea a reality. Then
people moved methodically forward with those plans. In a word, it was
engineering, with the processes and materials and machinery, to make each of
these, whether as a single great achievement, or on a massive scale to
provide for the needs of thousands, millions, or even billions. Engineers
are involved in every facet of our society, working to improve what we have,
and looking ahead to develop new ideas for our future.
Camp Tuscazoar, Ohio’s most historic camp, for its 2013 Dover Dam Days
program, will offer scouts the opportunity, to explore engineering. Each of
three tracks will provide the opportunity to learn, have fun and advance
along Scouting’s trail.
Engineering Merit Badge (EMB)
(must be 13 or older, or First Class rank or
Engineers and engineering students from multiple fields will lead scouts through both hands-on labs and group discussions. Scouts who complete all of the sessions and who turn in a properly completed blue card will earn the MB, have fun and broaden their horizons.

Engineering & Advancement with Scouting Skills (EASS) -
(open to all
This is a chance to jumpstart new scouts or nudge slightly older scouts to advance. Scouts will journey throughout the camp, with multiple stops along the way. Each stop is designed with an engineering theme, and each will teach and enhance scouting skills. Each stop will focus on a rank requirement from Tenderfoot through First Class. All will be fun and challenging. By the end of their adventure, scouts should be in a position to have their troops sign off on approximately 10 rank requirements.
Engineering Activity Badge (EAB)
Cub Scouts can attend various sessions engineered just for them. These sessions will satisfy most of the EAB requirements and should be enjoyable for scouts of all ages.
Pre-registration is required for all three program tracks. Scouts are
encouraged to attend for the full weekend. Pre-registered day-trippers will
be accepted. For campers, campsites can only be guaranteed with
The cost is $12 per person (adult or scout). This fee covers all program

program. Camping costs are extra and depend on camp site or cabin selected.
