Over the years, thousands of children have learned to hunt, fish and appreciate the natural world through their experiences at Barry Conservation Camp.
Support the Barry Camp Fund!
This dedicated fund will keep Barry Camp viable into the future by providing the annual operation and maintenance costs. Camp operations cost about $6,000 a year and are not covered by camp fees. The Barry Camp Fund was launched in 2011 with a generous donation from the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire. It continues to grow, thanks to statewide support and interest.
Our goal: To raise $100,000 to protect the investment we’ve made in refurbishing the camp.
The first annual Barry Camp Wild Game Weekend was a huge success, raising nearly $4,000 for camp operations. Click here to learn more.
Capital improvements: Things just keep getting better at Barry Camp. In 2012, campers enjoyed a wonderful new covered shooting range and waiting pavilion, built with donated materials and labor. Upgrades are planned for the archery area. We have exciting plans to build a covered screened-in programming area next to the dining hall that will give us additional dining capacity and space for small group instruction. Once these improvements are made, we can finish landscaping the main camp area, adding a gravel drive for food deliveries, fixing drainage issues and planting grass for play and activity areas. Your donations to the Barry Camp Fund can help make all this happen!
Partnership with 4-H: Barry camp is operated by Fish and Game in partnership with 4-H through UNH Cooperative Extension. Programs at the camp include education in the shooting sports, hunting, fishing, camping and other outdoor skills.
Directions: Barry Conservation Camp is in the White Mountain National Forest on the grounds of the Berlin Fish Hatchery in Milan, N.H. The hatchery and camp are at the end of York Pond Road, off Route 110 in Milan.
