Camp Bil-O-Wood is a traditional, co-ed, summer camp for children ages 7 to 17. Our 2, 3, 4, and 7 week sessions provide a comprehensive in-camp activity program and an unsurpassed wilderness canoeing and camping program.  Our location in the pristine North woods of Ontario offers an endless playground for children to learn, to grow, and to play in an outdoor setting.  The property, located in Blind River, Ontario is surrounded by three clear Canadian lakes. Originally consisting of a few small fishing cabins and a lodge, Camp Bil-O-Wood has agrown into an expansive multi-recreational facility.

Our History

Camp Bil-O-Wood began in 1946 as the dream of Uncle Woody and Aunt Dottie Ludwig, and their parents Mom and Pop Ludwig, and continues today under the care of the fourth generation of the Ludwig family. The initial group of thirty-seven campers, all from Pennsylvania, has grown into a camp of 130 children, during each session—many of whom are from second and third generation families. Our campers come from all across North America and the world.

Camp Bil-O-Wood

“As one goes through life, one learns that if you don’t paddle your own canoe, you don’t move.”

Thank you Katherine Hepburn 🙏

Going into the wilderness and traveling the river by canoe gives us the chance to drop the external distractions and to have a singular focus—point A to point B. From dawn til dusk we paddle; sometimes in a group; sometimes at a distance; sometimes in conversation; sometimes in delirious laughter; and sometimes in long periods of silence.

The steady stroke of the paddle builds strength of body (30 miles a day will do that to you) and strength of mind (mental endurance required) as we learn to move our own canoe; to move forward; always forward.
