Support Barry Camp: Located in the White Mountain National Forest, Barry Conservation Camp provides a close-knit community for 38 campers and 11 staff. Newly renovated cabins each house seven campers and a counselor. Help ensure Barry Camp is here to connect future generations with the outdoors by contributing to the Barry Camp Fund. Additional improvements and an endowment campaign are underway to ensure that Barry Camp will always be here to nurture new generations of outdoors enthusiasts and conservation-minded citizens.

Sponsor a camper: Although Barry Conservation Camp is competitively priced, many families find it challenging to finance a week at camp. Fortunately, there is a long camp tradition of individuals and organizations providing “camperships” to Barry Conservation 4-H Camp. Check out our sponsorship brochure at extension.unh.edu/Counties/Coos/Docs/campershipflyer2013.pdf or call 788-4961 if you would like to learn how to help send a youngster to camp.
