KEEP THE SPIRIT BURNING At Ohio's Most Historic Camp

Camp Tuscazoar was founded more than a century 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. Large numbers of weekend campers, hikers, mountain bikers and horse riders visit throughout the year.
