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.

As part of Camp Tuscazoar’s centennial celebration, a collection of 100 historic sites throughout camp were identified and marked with a unique sign. Visitors are encouraged to hike to many or all of these sites to learn more about the camp’s rich history.
We ordered too many of these patches for the 2023 Jamboree-on-the-Air/Jamboree-on-the-Internet, also known as JOTA-JOTI. They were purchased to encourage participation in a Scouting merit badge event held at the camp and are left over from that event. We only have a small quantity that are available while supplies last.
Attention Mountain Bikers: The Tuscazoar Composite (TZC) Team invites local boys and girls in grades 6-12 to join our team for the 2024 fall season!

Those who collect medallions for their walking sticks can add Camp Tuscazoar to their collection. These colorful mementos, which picture the camp logo, can be purchased at a price of $8.00 each plus shipping.
