The North Country Camps Foundation
Established in 2017, the North Country Camps Foundation, Inc. is inspired by the 100+ year history of the North Country Camps and has been created to support and conduct the successful continuation of camps Lincoln and Whippoorwill into the future.
Our nonprofit organization offers families the opportunity to choose summer experiences for their children centered on wilderness living, learning, leadership development and diverse community living.
Nestled in the Adirondack region of New York State, the North Country Camps were established by Colba “Chief” Gucker in 1920 and have invited children and their families into the camp community ever since.
The foundation will continue to expand on the Gucker family’s legacy with the support of generations of campers, parents and our extended community. It is led by a Board of Directors comprised of individuals who understand the history and tradition of the North Country Camps and are committed to carrying out the Foundation’s mission.
