Barbara C. Harris Camp and Conference Center

The Barbara C. Harris Camp and Conference Center, is located on 326 wooded acres on the shores of Otter Lake in Greenfield, New Hampshire. The camp and conference center is named after the late Rt. Rev. Barbara Clementine Harris (1930-2020), bishop suffragan of the Diocese of Massachusetts and the first woman to be consecrated a bishop in the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Campers and conference attendees alike can take advantage of the facility's numerous amenities:

  • A mile-long lake for canoeing
  • An inviting shoreline
  • Nature trails and picnic areas
  • Basketball and volleyball courts
  • Softball and soccer fields
  • Low and high ropes courses

The camp

The summer camp opened in 2003 and has established itself as one of the premiere Christian camps in New England. Campers and parents from the first summer on have discovered the cornerstones of the camp: an incredible staff, spectacular facilities, a caring Christian community and a strong commitment to excellence.
