Elks Camp Barrett is a camp designed to help young people of all backgrounds develop and grow by affording the opportunity of getting outdoors for adventure and fun. It is operated by the Elks Association of Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia. Campers are sponsored by local Elks Lodges and the cost of camp is covered by that sponsorship.
While at the Elks Camp Barrett, the campers are divided into individual groups with their own cabins. Their activities are under the supervision of counselors, which assures more personal care. Some of the activities are various Sports, Arts & Crafts, Nature Study, Archery and a closely supervised Rifle Range, to name a few. Meals are carefully prepared to be tasty and nutritious. A nurse is on the property, or on call at all times.
Any youth between the ages of 9 and 13 from the Maryland, Delaware, or Washington D.C. area is eligible. They do not have to be needy, but should be worthy and deserving or one who would not otherwise have such an opportunity for a camping experience.
