ZOARVILLE -- Camp Tuscazoar will host its annual Maple Days breakfast on March 15 and 16.
The breakfast menu will offer all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausage, applesauce, orange drink and samples of maple syrup. Meals will be served from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. both days in the camp's heated dining hall.
The camp will be producing maple syrup once again this season.
Plastic tubes transport sap from one or more taps on each maple tree (depending on the tree diameter) to collection tanks.
The collected sap is then pumped through another plastic line up to the sugar shack, where an evaporator boils off water until the sap has been converted into syrup.
Foundation volunteers then bottle the syrup for sale to the public.
Proceeds from the fund-raiser will help defray the cost of equipment and supplies. The maple syrup production area will be open for tours and demonstrations and gift baskets of syrup will also be available, along with baked goods prepared with our syrup. Bottles of Camp Tuscazoar's all-natural syrup will be available for purchase during the weekend as well.
Tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for children 10 and under and can be purchased at the door.
Transportation will be provided to and from the camp parking lot. The W.C. Moorhead Museum will also be open.
The museum contains memorabilia dating from Camp Tuscazoar's earliest days to the present.
