Bar Harbour camp volunteers seek historical information, hope to collect some at reunion Oct. 2

Volunteers supporting the preservation and improvement of Bar Harbour camp site are appealing for information to be able to create a proper historical profile of the popular camping area.

Kayla Penteliuk, one of the volunteers said they had a few bits and pieces of information but they were far short of what was needed for a complete historical account of how the camp was developed and maintained.

She said they knew very little about Fred Holder, owner of the camp area, who is said to have donated the land to the United Church.

Penteliuk also said they would like to know more about a group who called themselves “Bar Harbour Ladies’ League.”

She said they were organizing a Bar Harbour Camp fans reunion on Saturday, Oct. 2 and that they were hoping that they could collect more historical information, evidence and objects on the camp site.

Penteliuk called on all those who may be in a position to provide some historical information to contact her either through e mail at or by phone at 403-396-7546.
