Gone Home Board

Camp Barnard Gone Home BoardThis refers to the universal trail marking symbol for “I have gone home”, a circle with a dot in the middle. This memorial in the heart of the camp recalls for us all the youth and adult members of Scouting who have “gone home”, but whose memories linger on at camp.


The procurement and mounting of the plaques are vested in the 2nd BP Guild.
