Starting Roughing It Day Camp 1972
We started Roughing It Day Camp in 1972 with 17 campers, 1 bus, 2 canoes, 5 fishing poles, and a dream in our hearts. This was almost our whole camp in 1975!
Growing Up at Roughing It
Our own daughters, Amy and Katey Woods grew up at Roughing It Day Camp. We consider all our campers part of our Roughing It Family.

Alumni Families and Staff Make Camp Special
Our camp community continues to grow as alumni campers and staff send their own children to Roughing it for the same special experience. Many of our counselors were also campers themselves. Over 20 second generation campers attended camp last year!
