Ohio's Most Historic Camp

"By the Tuscarawas waters, near the town of Zoar;
Lies the place our hearts hold dearest, our Camp
Tuscazoar."

-From the Tuscazoar Hymn

Camp Tuscazoar was founded more than 90 years 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.  Camp Tuscazoar remains a popular outdoor location, drawing large numbers of weekend campers and hikers each year.
