4-H Barry Conservation Camp (BCC) is operated by the UNH Cooperative Extension 4-H Program in cooperation with the N.H. Department of Fish and Game. It is located in the White Mountain National Forest at the Berlin Fish Hatchery. BCC provides a close-knit community for its 38 campers and 11 staff. There are six cabins, each housing up to seven campers and a counselor. Campers are grouped by age and gender. There are central toilets, shower facilities, and a dining hall complete with kitchen.
4-H Barry Conservation Camp is a great program for kids who love the outdoors, enjoy hands-on learning in environmental and conservation programs, and can benefit from participating in a small camp. Staff take pride in creating a special place where kids can discover their individual strengths. Campers and staff work together as a team in the hope that everyone leaves camp with a greater awareness of themselves and the world around them.
