Support the Barry Camp Fund


Thanks to widespread support from New Hampshire's outdoor community, Barry Camp is open today for our youth. The work is not yet done! Improvements continue, and we are working to build The Barry Camp Fund to ensure that New Hampshire's only true conservation camp will continue to be here to inspire future generations of conservationists and outdoor enthusiasts. This dedicated fund will keep Barry Camp viable into the future by providing the annual operation and maintenance costs. Please help if you can.


How to Donate: Mail your donation to NH Fish and Game, or contribute online at or send your donation to: Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire, P.O. Box 3993, Concord, NH 03302. Specify your gift is for "The Barry Camp Fund." Thank you!


ShootingCapital improvements: Campers are enjoying a covered shooting range and pavilion built with donated materials and labor. Plans are in the works to build a covered screened-in programming area next to the dining hall, giving us additional dining capacity and space for small group instruction. Your donations to the Barry Camp Fund can secure the camp's future and help us make these and other improvements.



Partnership with 4-H: Barry camp is operated by Fish and Game in partnership with 4-H through UNH Cooperative Extension. Programs include education in the shooting sports, hunting, fishing, camping and other outdoor skills.
