In 1924, Camp Barton was established at Taughannock Falls, a mile or two south of our present location at Frontenac Point on beautiful Cayuga Lake in the heart of New York's Finger Lakes. In the more than eighty years since then, thousands of Scouts have been a part of the Barton tradition of fun, Scouting and year-round activity. We moved to Frontenac in 1927, and the fun has continued on the lake and in the nearly 200 acres of woods and fields. Camp Barton is the perfect setting for your troop's next summer camp adventure, and will provide your Scouts with camping experiences which will be remembered for a lifetime.
