About Camp Barbour

106 acres in Norfolk, CT with weekend campsites, a wilderness camporee site. 

FACILITIES

WATER
After many years, the camp well has been reactivated.

LATRINE
The camp latrine has recently been renovated

3 WILDERNESS CAMPING AREAS and ANOTHER CAMPING AREA CLOSE TO THE PARKING AREA
Camping areas are designed to allow patrols to establish separate areas while the adult leadership can still monitor the activities

DEDICATED LEAVE NO TRACE CAMPING AREA
A base camp off the BLUE Trail allows the adult leadership and any younger/inexperienced scouts to experience wilderness camping while allowing older/experienced scouts to venture out into the woods to practice LNT

3 HIKING TRAILS
The RED (main), WHITE and BLUE Trails offer short but fun walks in the woods.

MOUNTAIN BIKING
Units with mountain biking programs are welcome to use the trails, but please talk to the Campmaster regarding safety requirements

COUNCIL FIRE RING
Located just off the rear of the parking area, this is a great place to hold an outdoor Pack Meeting or Court of Honor.

WINTER CAMPING FUN
The RED Trail is great for sliding
A great way to explore Barbour is by cross-country skis or snowshoes

The two sheds at Camp Barbour have been removed, but large tent off-ground platforms remain with a fire pit. This is the cold spot of Connecticut for wilderness leave no trace camping. Recent improvements have added three latrines closer to the campsites. A new Cub camping site allows for first-time Cub tailgate camping.
