Bear Facts... lions and tigers and bears oh my!

We have had to have the Conservation Officer remove a nuisance black bear from camp in June after he tried to peel the side off the dumpster. This is a good reminder to us all that Camp Barnard is a WILDERNESS camp with all the associated WILDLIFE. We need to be bear aware in handling our food and garbage at camp not only for our benefit but for the benefit of the wildlife. Other critters to remember when visiting camp are cougars, ticks, mice, mosquitos, slugs…  Do your homework and educate the youth BEFORE you get to camp to ensure everyone at camp has a good time.
