Camp Barrachois, Cape Breton

Camp Barrachois, Cape Breton

I was up on Cape Breton Island for the Canada Day long weekend and the cottage I was staying at is just a few lots over from the old YMCA Camp Barrachois. Now that’s it’s no longer in use, it’s a fun and slightly depressing walk around the property. Great for photos — I took quite a few with my “real” camera — not so great for the kids of the area who no longer have access to the place.

It looks like the YMCA has decided to sell the property as its become more of a liability than anything.

This is a panorama of the lodge and what I assume is a cabin for the camp counsellors. This is what you’d see as you came in to the driveway.
