Bristol children's help society

HISTORY

Bristol Children's Help Society  was established in 1884 and the first camp was held in Barton 3 years  later.  As such, it is one of the longest running residential adventure camps for children in the country. 

Through the continued efforts and support of the Harvey family , Barton continues to thrive through to the present day.
