CAMP WILDWOOD HISTORY

Camp Wildwood, located in the Catskill region of New York State (Town of Earlton, Greene County), is a campground on over 90 acres of majestic rural land and hills. The property was purchased in the 1970s with a vision to provide a safe place to take students from urban communities out of their everyday routine and invite them into a community which facilitates spiritual formation, instills character, implants Godly values, and inspires a life of service.

Over the years, there has been a struggle to maintain the buildings on the campground. As a result, most of the property has become unusable due to deterioration. Significant work is required to restore the campground. While uninhabitable in its current state, a vision has been cast with a belief that this site will be revived.

OUR MISSION
