Why

Why Choose Bil-O-Wood

Safe and Nurturing Surroundings - Our trained and mature counselors have a genuine interest in and compassion for children. All counselors are carefully chosen to be positive, effective role models. Our surroundings nurture and challenge each child so they can develop a greater level of self-confidence and self-awareness. By learning a greater sense-of-self, camp shows children how to contribute to their surrounding community.

Enriching Environment - Our staff understands that a child first needs to feel secure before they will explore and try new things. Camp Bil-O-Wood’s supportive staff, structured activity program, and guided outdoor living and wilderness program helps campers develop skills, foster independence, and build self-confidence while having fun in a safe and energetic environment. Through daily interaction with fellow campers and staff, children learn to problem solve and to help others.

Friendships Forever - Living, laughing, sharing, and playing together bonds our campers in ways that form lifelong friendships. Camp Bil-O-Wood provides a community where every camper feels comfortable and safe whether they are a first time camper or returning camper.
