The Chief’s Memorial Campership Fund provides financial support for children whose families cannot afford the full fee for the North Country Camps (Camp Lincoln for boys and Camp Whippoorwill for girls).  Established in 1974, the Chief’s Fund honors Colba “Chief” Gucker, founder of the North Country Camps, and the Gucker family.  Our board consists of current and former members of the camp community. We solicit donations and award camperships for each summer.

The Chief’s Fund is a non-profit organization administered by a volunteer board of directors. It is a separate organization from The North Country Camps.
