Barry Camp is a highly acclaimed youth conservation camp located within the White Mountain National Forest in Berlin, New Hampshire. Originally called York Pond Conservation Camp, the facility was renamed in 1985 in honor of the Barry Family – Everett, Charles and Rebecca – who dedicated more than seventy five combined years of service to the NH Fish and Game Department.
The camp is located on the grounds of the Berlin State Fish Hatchery. Six rustic cabins, a program building and a multipurpose dining hall/kitchen building support up to 216 campers each summer. UNH Cooperative Extension 4-H and Youth Development has been a co-sponsor of the camp since its inception. The focus of the summer youth program is on conservation, including increasing knowledge of how to manage and conserve the natural world as well as providing opportunities to learn shooting sports and fishing skills. The camp is also used as a training facility at other times of the year for teacher institutes and sportsmen’s groups.
Major capital improvements are currently underway at the camp, and are expected to continue into 2011. To learn more about these improvements and how you can help, click here.
