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.
