As you've probably heard by now, everyone's summer schedules have been recently turned upside down. Summer camp programs at Camp Tuscarora were no exception to these turn of events.

Not to worry, luckily we have a team of dedicated, hard-working program gurus who have a little bit of experience with "Plan B", "Plan C", "Plan Z", etc..... and they dove right in to rearranging summer programs, hashing out the new details, and getting updated publications ready. Details below:

There are two sessions of "How To Train Your Tuscarora Dragon" for Packs to choose from with a Resident Camper and Day Camper option available for both sessions. Reservations will be on a first-come, first-served basis with a participant limit for both sessions:

  • Session One – July 26th – 28th
  • Session Two – July 30th - August 1st
