Barry Conservation Camp (BCC) is a great program for kids who love the outdoors, enjoy hands-on learning and like a small camp environment. Staff take pride in creating a special place where kids can discover their individual strengths.

BCC's six cabins are located in the White Mountain National Forest at the Berlin Fish Hatchery and is run by the UNH Cooperative Extension 4-H Program in cooperation with the NH Department of Fish & Game.

Barry Conservation Camp has been making summer magic happen for New Hampshire youth since 1984 and educates young people about wildlife, natural resources and helps them develop life and leadership skills. And when camp is over, youth bring those new skills back home to their communities. Be sure to follow our Facebook Page for camp updates:  Barry Conservation Camp
