Camp Barton

 

Camp Barton is a Baden-Powell Council camp located on 300 acres on Frontenac Point on the west shore of Cayuga Lake in New York State's Finger Lakes. It is approximately nine miles north of Ithaca, New York.

Camp Barton operates 5 one week sessions for Boy Scouts and 1 three day sessions for Cub Scout overnight camping.  The camp has twelve summer camping sites with 2- and 4-man platform tents, as well as winter lean-tos in one of the two gorges which surround the camp.  The camp facilities include many water-based activities on the camp's half-mile of waterfront, including rowing, Motorboating, sailing, waterskiing and swimming, as well as handicrafts, nature, rifle and archery ranges, and Scoutcraft areas. Camp Barton also has a special Intro to SCUBA course and is currently a pilot site for Personal Water Crafts (PWC).

The camp's buildings and cabins are available for year-round use by Scouting and other youth organizations from after Labor Day until mid-June (dates may vary depending on summer camp season).  For more information contact the Council Service Center.
