A tribute to Camp Tuscazoar: to the scouts, the traditions, and ideals;
a place for learning, for recollection, and remembrance.
The W. C. Moorhead Museum at Camp Tuscazoar collects and exhibits photographs, books, uniforms, artifacts and other objects depicting the history of Camp Tuscazoar and area scouting.
Camp Tuscazoar's development was closely linked to the growth of scouting in this region. Since the camp was founded in 1920, thousands of campers have trod the paths, climbed its hills, explored its valleys and slept beneath its tall timbers. Camp Tuscazoar is the birthplace of the Pipestone Camp Honors Program and includes the only remaining Zoarite iron mine.
A variety of displays will trace the camp's history in photographs and memorabilia. Other exhibits will explore the camp's terrain, wildlife, geology, and the area's history prior to the arrival of the first scouts.
The museum was built in 1995 as part of Camp Tuscazoar's 75th Anniversary celebration. Years ago, W. C. (Cecil) Moorhead, Camp Tuscazoar's first ranger, established a determination to finance the construction of such a museum for the enjoyment and education of camp visitors. When he passed away in 1993, the Camp Tuscazoar Foundation began planning for the museum's development. Cecil's lifelong collection of memorabilia will be housed in the museum as well.

indicate the weather just as well.
