Ohio's Most Historic Camp
"By the Tuscarawas waters, near the town of Zoar;
Lies the place our hearts hold dearest, our Camp
-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.

Dover Dam Weekend to focus on Disabilities Awareness
During Dover Dam Weekend, May 2-4, scouts will gain a better understanding of the impediments the world places before persons with disabilities, how they deal with those impediments, and how we can avoid being such a barrier. Boy Scouts will have a chance to complete all of the Disabilities Awareness merit badge requirements. Younger scouts can also complete many of the Cub Scout belt loop and academic pin requirements.
