Captain Doug DiCenzo Camp Fund FAQs
What is the Cpt. Douglas DiCenzo Camp Fund?
The Camp Fund is non-profit organization dedicatd to sharing Doug’s love of adventure and the outdoors with the area’s young people. Teachers, coaches and school counselors from the New Hampshire area identify students who they feel would benefit from attending camp, but may not be able to attend without financial assistance. Then working with the person making the recommendation, the child’s parents and the camp, an appropriate assistance program is put in place to provide the camp opportunities. Our goal is to meet the needs of as many of the Plymouth area’s young people as possible.
