Honor Plaza Installed At Tuscarora!

Camp Tuscarora has installed an Honor Plaza in the patio in front of the Dining Hall at camp. It's an ongoing opportunity to recognize an important person in your life, living or deceased. You could recognize a family member, Troop member, Eagle Scout mentor, business partner, or anyone who has played an important role in your life.

The Honor Plaza will be dedicated once complete in honor of Larry Corwin, who contributed much of his life to the Camp.

If you'd like to recognize someone in this lasting manner, please click on the link below to download the form.
