Summer Camps at BCH are inclusive Christian formation ministries of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts in partnership with the dioceses New Hampshire and Western Massachusetts.

You and your family are welcome here! As an Episcopal camp, we are passionate about being a safe space for all campers and families and we strive for a rich diversity of campers and staff. Each week chaplains participate in all camp activities and lead space for chapel and reflection.

Our 2024 Camp Sessions are:

Family Camp:

*Part of our mission at the Barbara C. Harris Camp and Conference center is that no child or family would be unable to participate in camp due to financial need. Camperships are available for those who need them. More information about applying for camperships can be found as part of the registration process.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:

The Barbara C. Harris Camp and Conference Center is committed to engaging in equitable practices in all of our programming. Our work as a camping community is to acknowledge and resist systems that allow for oppression and disenfranchisement. Our goal is to honor the diverse backgrounds of our campers, staff, and other participants so that we may all find meaningful ways to participate, together, in community. People of all races, colors, religions, creeds, sexes, gender identities, national origins, abilities, and sexual orientations are welcome.

Compliance and Safety

BCH Camp is American Camp Association (ACA) accredited. ACA accreditation means we undergo a thorough (over 250 standards) review of our operation – from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. ACA collaborates with experts from The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross and other youth service agencies to ensure that our current practices reflect the most up-to-date research based standards in camp operation. Every camper’s safety and well-being is our chief concern.
