Camp Barnhardt

Camp John J. Barnhardt

Description -- Camp Barnhardt is located on 1,000 acres of rolling, wooded hills on Badin Lake in the William C. Cannon Scout Reservation between Albemarle and Salisbury, N.C. The camp features 14 well spaced troop sites around an Olympic-sized, L-shaped swimming pool, two man-made lakes, a new dining hall, a chapel, a commissary, a health lodge, an ecology lodge, a rifle range, a shotgun range and an archery range, an outpost camp, a picnic area, a C.O.P.E. course and a rappelling tower. Montgomery Campfire Circle, a replica of a Seminole Indian enclosure designed after the nearby Town Creek Indian Mounds State Park, is the site of many good campfire programs and ceremonies. The Lone Scouts, which is a division of the Boy Scouts of America that made it possible for "any boy anywhere to become a Scout" selected Camp Barnhardt as the home of its National Museum and Memory Lodge.
