The History of Camp Piney Woods

Camp Piney Woods started out as a very small, family Camping Experience in August of 2001.
The Grasshopper Hitty Club, our family Hitty Club, sponsored some Hitty fun while the AGA Hittys were on
vacation at Butterfield Lake, in Redwood, NY. Hittys from the (NC) Atkinson, (NY) Atkinson, McBath, Faubert, Cole, and DeGroat family were present. We did this for two years, and then the idea occurred--why not
invite some other Hittys to share the fun? That's when we created Camp Ash Grove. Camp Ash Grove ran
from 2003 to 2005, during which point, a vote was taken among the campers to change the name to
Camp Piney Woods, a name that continues to this day.
