Dover Dam Weekend - 2015
Join us at Camp Tuscazoar's 28th annual
Dover Dam Days
April 24-26 for Search and Rescue
“Imagine the concern a parent or loved one has when a teenager is overdue from a hike in the wilderness, a small child is missing from a crowded playground, a rock climber becomes stranded on a precarious ledge, or an elderly person wanders away from a caregiver.” 1
Scouts are creative and should have no problems imagining all those scary scenarios. But scouts are not just thinkers, they are doers. It’s the way they strive to fulfill that important motto … you know the one.
Join us at Camp Tuscazoar so your scouts can be prepared. And maybe someday that preparation will put your scouts in a position to help search for that overdue teenager, that missing small child, that stranded rock climber, or that elderly loved one.
We welcome the expertise of the Ohio Wing - Civil Air Patrol, specifically the Tusco Composite Squadron 277, who’ll provide most of the training.
Whether scouts attend for the weekend, or just on Saturday, they will have a chance to complete all of the merit badge requirements, with only one pre-requisite. Click here to view more information on the weekend and the pre-requisite.
The Corp of Army Engineers has been busy upgrading the Dover Dam for the last few years. Their success in ensuring that the Dam is securely connected to the bedrock means that, for the first time since 2012, the Dover Dam Days weekend will once again feature the unique opportunity to tour inside the Dover Dam.
DDD also includes a patch, a fine Saturday meal and a rousing campfire
at Ohio’s most historic camp. Pre-registration is required,
so register early so your scouts don’t miss this real world experience that
will surely add to their preparation for life.
The cost is $15 per person, adult or scout. That fee
covers all program activities, plus a commemorative patch, a great dinner
and the campfire.
Camping costs are extra and depend on camp site or cabin selected. For camping info and reservations: call Camp Tuscazoar at 330-859-2288 or visit us on the web at www.tuscazoar.org or http://camptuscdd.weebly.com.
NOTICE: Due to the large number of groups and visitors anticipated for Dover Dam Weekend, please plan to carpool to camp if possible. This will free up parking spaces in our lot. Thank you!
