Dover Dam Weekend

Featuring Scouting Heritage Merit Badge

For a century, scouts have made Camp Tuscazoar a destination for creating memories while learning more about themselves, as responsibility, character, leadership, nature, outdoor skills, and a long list of life lessons have been and continue to be learned. While many memories are unique to the individual, others are shared experiences that have crossed generations. To help celebrate the camp’s place in the hearts and heads of those who have roamed the camp from Pioneer Point to Buzzard’s Roost, and so many memorable places in between, Dover Dam Weekend will be devoted to that shared heritage of our camp, and of Scouting on May 1-3.

May 1-3, 2019

While our primary goal is to create the chance to experience and to live the best of that heritage, a bonus is the opportunity to earn Scouting Heritage Merit Badge. Stations will offer info about Scouting and camp heritage. And it wouldn’t be Dover Dam Weekend without a chance to hike to and through a dam that has contributed to that shared history.

Both advisors and youth should review requirements #5 and #6 now. These must be started before coming to camp. Scouts will have an opportunity to complete those requirements during the weekend, but scouts must begin the task of learning their unit or area Scouting history, (#5), and of putting together a collection of personal and Scouting memorabilia (#6).
