Of all of Lost's filming locations none is more popular than the Barracks also known as the village of the Others. It is here where the Dharma Initiative made its home on the island and where, after the Purge, Ben and the Others lived.
Season 5 of Lost made extensive use of this site for most of the episodes featuring the Dharma Initiative. It is here where in Episode 5 - Namaste, Hurley, Kate and Jack were taken by Sawyer to join the Dharma Initiative. The Processing Center is where the new Dharma recruits receive their work assignments and uniforms. It is where Jack learned that his aptitude test determined that he was best suited to be a janitor - clearly a mean trick on the part of Sawyer, now known as LaFleur, the head of security.
The Dharma Processing Center is actually the Assembly Hall for YMCA Camp Erdman located near Mokule'ia Beach on Oahu's North Shore. If you visit this Lost filming location, please note that it is private property. If you wish to walk onto the property, please stop by the camp office and ask permission. A small donation to the camp will usually help ease your way.
