NEW - 2016 Repair Projects
Barr Camp has received permission from the United States Forest Service to perform some much needed repairs around the camp. The scope of work approved includes:
- Repair/replacement of main cabin foundation and deck.
- Ground floor entrance into composting toilets.
- Replace 12’ x 12’ canvas shed with larger hard-sided shed.
Operated as a 501(c)3, the camp has built a capital improvement fund over a number of years. Unfortunately, the fund won’t cover the entire cost of the construction. As a result, we would greatly appreciate your support in expanding our capital fund to allow us to begin construction on these capital projects.
As you may know, Barr Camp is a source of information, shelter and food for up to 20,000 hikers and runners each year. Over 2,500 visitors per year spend the night at Barr Camp and are provided breakfast and dinner with their bunk. Our exceptionally friendly caretakers give assistance to those who need it and often act as first responders when emergencies occur on that side of the mountain.
Barr Camp is one of only two structures on Pikes Peak built to support tourism and still in operation (Glen Cove is the other). At nearly 100 years old, we hope you will be as enthusiastic as we are to help put Barr Camp on a solid foundation to carry it into its next 100 years!
