Support the Barry Camp Fund

Thanks to support from New Hampshire's outdoor community, Barry Camp is here 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.

How to Donate: Send tax-deductible contributions for Barry Camp to the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire, P.O. Box 3993, Concord, NH 03301. Specify The Barry Camp Fund.

Learning to shoot at Barry Camp

Over the years, thousands of children have learned to hunt, fish and appreciate the natural world through their experiences at Barry Conservation Camp.

Our goal: We have reached the halfway point in our effort to raise $100,000 for The Barry Camp Fund.

Capital improvements: Campers are enjoying a new covered shooting range and pavilion, built with donated materials and labor. Upgrades are planned for the archery area. One goal is to build a covered screened-in programming area next to the dining hall will give us additional dining capacity and space for small group instruction. Additional landscaping is needed for the main camp area, including installing a gravel drive for food deliveries and planting grass for 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 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.
