In case you didn't know, 2nd Beaver Bank Group Committee has rebuilt the Harold T. Barrett Fun Forest Camp - a new 2300 square foot year around camping facility available for Scouting groups in the Halifax Region and surrounding area.

The lodge is situated on a wooded 20-acre lot, which is located within 1700 acres of wooded crown land. It sits on the shores of beautiful Beaver Bank Lake, Beaver Bank, NS. To find the Harold T. Barrett Fun Forest Camp, simply take the Beaver Bank Road exit off Highway #101. Follow Beaver Bank Rd approximately 9 km. The camp facility is located 2.5 km. in on a private logging road at 1901 Beaver Bank Rd. This road is kept gated and locked at all times. Keys can be obtained from the Camp Managers.

The camp boasts sleeping accommodations for 22 youth (with ample floor space for more), two separate leader's quarters for a total of eight leaders, plus a sick bay with room for two. A well stocked kitchen with propane fridge and stove, and a large eating area.

There is a large activity area. Inside and outside bathroom facilities are available. The camp has wood and oil heat. Limited parking is available inside the second gate. There is a turn-around located beside the lodge for drop off and pick-up only.


There are now two tenting sites available for the outdoor camper. The King Site is equipped with several graveled tent pads providing room for 10 to 12 tents, as well as a large eating/cooking shelter.

The Natural Site has been left in its natural state with very little disturbed.

The lodge has also installed a wharf and cleaned up the swimming area as well.

Check out the camp layout for more information and photos of these recent changes.
