The Power of the Dudley Connection Dear Friends, On  a  cold  March  afternoon  I  received  a  visit  from  a  long  lost  Eastern   European  friend.  #15855  Pawel  Kicinski,  who  came  to  us  from  Poland   as  an  AL  in  1991,  and  a  leader  in  1992-­94,  was  in  the  States  for  a  con-­ ference  in  North  Carolina.  At  its  conclusion,  he  thought,  “I  must  get   back  to  Dudley.”  Though  it  was  14  hours  by  car,  the  pull  for  Pawel  was   overwhelming,  and  as  a  result  we  spent  an  afternoon  walking,  talking   and  reconnecting.   Said  Pawel,  “I  first  came  to  Plattsburgh,  NY  to  visit  an  exchange  student   who  lived  with  us  in  Poland.  During  my  two-­week  visit,  we  came  to   Camp  Dudley  where  I  met  Willie  Schmidt.  He  let  me  stay  all  day  and   visit  with  campers  and  leaders.  At  the  end  of  the  day,  he  offered  me  a   Dudley  Director  #13804  Matt  Storey  (R),  with   leadership  job  for  the  following  summer.  I  came  the  next  three  sum-­ #15855  Pawel  Kicinski  (L)  at  Camp mers,  and  Dudley  remains  one  of  the  most  influential  experiences  of     my  life,”  he  told  me.  “My  lessons  in  leadership  from  Dudley  hold  true   today.  My  first  leader  #12735  Ed  O’Hara  was  such  a  good  role  model  that  all  I  wanted  to  do  was  to  be  like  him.   When  I  returned  as  a  leader,  I  felt  a  great  responsibility  to  do  my  best  for  the  campers,  my  fellow  leaders  and  for   Willie,  who  had  given  me  this  great  chance.”   Pawel’s  pilgrimage  to  Dudley  was  an  excellent  reminder  for  me  of  just  how  treasured  this  place  is  for  so  many.  We   walked,  visited  his  cabins,  the  new  buildings  and  took  in  the  beautiful  views  of  the  Lake  and  the  mountains.  We   shared  our  mutual  good  fortune  to  be  able  to  call  this  place  home. I  am  spoiled  by  the  number  of  great  folks  that  I  get  to  reconnect  with  as  part  of  my  job.  I  never  tire  of  hearing  the   stories  from  others  who  have  found  neighbors,  co-­workers,  roommates  and  teachers  who  also  went  to  Dudley,  and   how  they  instantly  “connected”  because  of  their  shared  values  and  experience.   Davo  and  I  drove  over  to  Middlebury,  VT,  to  have  a  “mini-­reunion”  dinner  with  #18778  Blake  Harper,  #19279   Matt  Wojciechowicz  and  #19304    Tommy  Dils,  three  of  our  Dudley  leaders.  Tommy  recalled  that  during  his   first  week  at  Middlebury  he  ran  into  #19227  Jack  DeFrino,  #19691  Quincy  Nichols  and  #20481  Fitz  Bowen,  all   Dudleyites  on  the  lacrosse  team.  Tommy  played  on  the  soccer  team  with  #18538  Graham  Knisley  and  quickly  ran   into  #20364  Mary  Claire  Ecclesine  and  #22352  Ali  Surdoval  from  Kiniya  as  well  as  Emily  Vicks,  whose  brother,   #19100  Dwight,  was  a  leader  at  camp.  “Meeting  these  Dudleyites  so  early  at  Midd  helped  me  feel  right  at  home   and  was  a  huge  help  .  .  .  reminding  me  of  my  first  few  days  as  a  Cub  back  in  2005.”   Being  connected  to  Dudley  is  a  rare  advantage  that  we  are  fortunate  to  have.  Let’s  remember  that  along  with  it   comes  the  responsibility  to  demonstrate  “The  Other  Fellow  First,”  our  shared  value  that  never  gets  old. Respectfully, #13804  Matt  Storey,  Director

THE CAMP  DUDLEY  NEWS


. . . Forever Connected! Greetings  From  Kiniya, Reading  through  our  Strategic  Planning  Survey  responses,  I  am  reminded   of  our    connections  to  Camp  as  we  move  through  life  and  how,  for  many   of  us,  these  connections  change  as  we  grow.   ‡$VFDPSHUV  eagerly  awaiting  each  summer’s  Opening  Day,  Camp  is  the   place  we  can’t  help  thinking  about  during  the  depth  of  winter.  Our  day-­ dreams  take  us  to  a  happy  place  called  Kiniya,  as  an  escape  from  homework   and  chores.  Some  never  outgrow  this  phase  —  and  that  is  a  wonderful   thing! ‡$V\RXQJOHDGHUV  Camp  reflects  the  relationships  we’ve  created  with  our   peers  who  can  support  us  through  challenging  times.  These  relationships   Kiniya  Director  #20001  Marnie  McDonagh help  guide  us  through  high  school  and  college  as  we  celebrate  success  and   deal  with  rejection.  Our  peer  support  network  is  as  important  at  home  and   school  as  it  is  when  we  share  our  summers  together.  Even  if  we  do  not  feel  as  deeply  connected  to  Camp  during   these  years,  we  know  these  relationships  with  our  Camp  peers  never  fade.   ‡$VZHKHDGLQWRWKHZRUNLQJZRUOG,  demands  of  work  life  may  pull  us  away  from  Camp.  But  the  regular  reminder   through  CD  News,  frequent  social  media  posts,  and  occasional  get-­togethers  with  old  Camp  pals  keep  us  connected.   Though  latent,  the  feeling  is  still  there,  and  is  no  less  important.   ‡$VZHIRVWHUUHODWLRQVKLSVDQGVWDUWIDPLOLHVRIRXURZQ  we  begin  to  relive  our  Camp  years  through  the  eyes  and  the   hearts  of  our  children,  grandchildren  (maybe  even  great-­grandchildren!)  and  nieces  and  nephews.  Their  actual   experiences  at  Camp  will  vary  from  those  we  remember,  but  the  emotions  and  the  joy  are  ever  so  familiar  .  .  .  the   flame  in  our  heart  for  Camp  burns  strongly  again.     Regardless  of  your  current  stage  of  life,  and  connection  to  Camp,  please  know  that  Kiniya  is  a  place  that  you  can   always  come  back  to.  I  am  thrilled  to  be  a  part  of  Camp  for  this  very  reason  and  to  be  building  on  the  work  of   those  who  came  before.  As  I  see  Kiniya  in  all  of  its  winter  glory,  with  the  promise  of  spring  at  hand,  I  can  also  see   the  glimpses  of  its  incredible  potential  and  exciting  future.  We  are  grateful,  proud  and  filled  with  hope  and  antici-­ pation  for  the  years  to  come.  We  embark  on  summer  2014  with  utmost  enthusiasm  and  look  forward  to  sharing  it   with  each  one  of  you! Warm  regards,   #20001  Marnie  McDonagh,  Director

Letters to the Editor . . . The  Dudley  Admissions  Department,  under  Evan   George,  recently  received  a  very  nice  letter  of  recom-­ mendation,  supporting  the  candidacy  of  a  prospective   camper.  The  letter  came  from  Paul  Ingrey  of  Palm   Beach,  FL,  who  also  has  a  summer  home  in  Hague,   NY.    He  wrote,  in  part,  “I  have  known  Dudley  for   about  60  years.  I  believe  it  is  the  outstanding  camp   facility,  but  also  much  more  than  a  facility.  It  really   does  help  youngsters  to  grow  and  mature.�  Very  nice,   recommendation  noted.  But  then  Paul  went  on  to  say,   “I  have  an  old  friend  named  Paul  Grinwis.  It  is  my   belief  that  Paul  still  helps  out  around  the  grounds  as   a  retiree.  Many  years  ago,  I  think  in  1958,  he  brought   quite  a  basketball  team  down  to  Silver  Bay  where  I   was  working,  to  play  us  employees  in  our  indoor  gym.     That  team  included  some  Dudley  legends,  including   Phil  ‘Lefty�  Bisselle,  Alf  Kaemmerlen,  Pete  Willmott,   the  Belz  brothers,  several  of  whom  were  the  captains   of  their  college  teams  .  .  .  Colgate,  Princeton  and   Williams.  Your  counselors  beat  us  by  about  60  points   —  they  were  good!  Anyway,  I  do  have  many  great   memories  of  Dudley  and  its  ‘other  guy  first’  excellence.   Thanks,  Paul  Ingrey.� The  editors  wanted  to  confirm  details  of  this  story  of   55  years  ago,  going  directly  to  Grinny.  Said  Grinny,   “Absolutely  accurate.  I  have  known  Paul  Ingrey  since   the  early  1950s  from  Silver  Bay  where  my  parents   used  to  go.  The  basketball  game  he  referred  to  was   in  1958.  I  believe  the  cast  of  characters  included  the   above  mentioned  plus  Bruce  Gerhke,  Charlie  Johnson   and  me.  I  forgot  my  sneakers  and  had  to  share  with   Charlie  so  each   of  us  got  to  play   a  little.  Believe   it  or  not  I  had   brought  Barbara   Watson  with  me   and  when  we   stopped  at  the   Cave  in  Hague   *ULQQ\DQG&'$5HXQLRQGDWH%DUEDUD afterwards  for   Watson some  beers,  we   could  not  get  served  as  she  was  only  17.  I  still  hear   about  that.�

THE  CAMP  DUDLEY  NEWS

Pete  Willmott’s  recollection  was,  “The  game  took   place  during  Reunion,  which  explains  both  why  then   Director  Bob  Marshall  would  let  us  play,  and  also  the   attendance  of  Barbara  Watson,  who  would  have  been   at  the  Reunion  with  her  family,  staying  in  one  of  the   Frisbie  cottages.  We  stayed  out  very  late,  primarily  try-­ ing  to  find  a  bar  where  Barbara  could  be  admitted.  I   remember  the  Gerk,  in  particular,  not  being  too  happy   with  Paul.� #8891  Moose  Rogers,  Bronxville,  NY,  wrote  to  the   editors,  saying,  “We  were  looking  at  the  Fall  2013  CD   News  again  and  I  noticed  an  error  in  my  note.  It  said,   “Matt  Rogers  and  his  brother  David  Johnson.�  The   funny  thing  is  I  used  their  camp  numbers  too. To  bring  you  up  to  date,  Dave  Rogers  and  his  wife  Kel-­ ley  have  a  beautiful  daughter  Ella,  now  3-­months  old.   On  another  topic,  I  took  the  boys  to  Scotland  for  10   days  of  golf  this  summer.  Needless  to  say  it  was  a  once   in  a  lifetime,  fabulous  trip. Ed.  Note:  Sorry  Moose,  there  are  now  so  many  Johnsons  and   so  many  Rogers  that  we  must  have  had  a  hard  time  keeping   them  straight!  For  the  record,  Rich  and  Gay  Johnson  Rogers   have  three  sons, #15891 Alexander, #15091 David and  #13891 Matthew.

Small World #15917 Christian  Thorn,  New  York,  NY,  who  is  with  LGT  Capital  Partners  in  New   York,  went  to  Boston  on  business  recently  and  was  introduced  by  a  colleague  to  #12625   Daniel  Madison  of  RBC  Capital  Markets  in  Boston.    Christian  said,  “As  we  were  chat-­ ting,  Dan  mentioned  that  he  had  grown  up  in  the  Syracuse  region,  and  I  mentioned   that  my  family  had  a  house  in  the  Adirondacks.  He  then  said  that  he  and  his  brother   had  attended  a  camp  in  Westport!  Dudley?!?    Go  figure  .  .  .  here  I  am  with  my  Swiss   colleague  in  Boston  and  the  guy  I’m  meeting  with  is  a  Dudley  guy!  Daniel  eventually   remembered  his  Dudley  number,  and  immediately  texted  his  brother  #9947  Joe  who  is   in  the  9000s.  #12625  Daniel  has  a  ten  year  old  son  and    lives  in  Newton  MA  outside  of   Boston.   #21804  Henry  Gillis,  St.  Louis,  MO,  was  in  Orlando,  FL  for  a  lacrosse  event  (3D  Blue   Chip  Camp)  where  Henry  unexpectedly  ran  into  his  buddy  #21789  Chris  Dunne,  of   Davie,  FL  who  was  there  with  his  dad  Pete.    Henry  was  competing  with  the  Class  of   2018  group  and  Chris  was  in  the  Class  of  2017  group.  It  was  a  great  weekend.  The  pic-­ ture  was  taken  during  halftime  of  one  of  Henry’s  games.  This  past  summer  Henry  was   in  Hamilton  and  Chris  was  in  Williams  cabins,  about  25  feet  from  each  other! Caroline  Burch,  the  longtime  production/manufacturing  director  for  Storey  Publish-­ ing  in  North  Adams,  MA,  was  on  a  trip  to  visit  Vicks  Publishing  in  Yorkville,  NY,  which   Dudley  dad  Dwight  Vicks  owns  and  operates.  Decades  earlier,  when  Caroline  worked   with  #5320  Ed  Fisher  in  getting  the  CD  News  out,  she  had  been  gifted  a  Camp  Dudley   sweatshirt.  On  this  most  recent  trip,  Caroline  squeezed  in  a  visit  to  her  old  home  town,   Aurora,  NY,  and  happened  to  be  sporting  her  CD  sweatshirt  on  the  sidewalks  of  Auro-­ ra,  when  she  was  stopped  in  her  tracks  by  an  acquaintance,  Randi  Shaw  Zabriskie,  who   Henry  Gillis  and  Chris  Dunne   owns  a  dress  shop  in  Aurora.  Asked  Randi,  “Why  are  YOU  wearing  a  Dudley  sweatshirt,   PHHWDWWKHODFURVVHILHOGLQ Caroline???”    Randi  and  her  husband  Steve  are  the  parents  of  #15932  Charlie  Zabriskie,     Florida! New  York,  NY,  who  is  also  the  grandson  of  #5932  Rube  Shaw.  Charlie  had  just  attend-­ ed  a  “Dudley  Today”  gathering  in  NYC  and  had  agreed  to  contribute  an  article  on  “The   Lost  Sheep  Campaign”  to  Dave  Langston.  Pretty  appropriate! #20001  Marnie  McDonagh  ran  into  Majken  Tranby  (Kiniya  ’94-­’99)  in  the  Lululemon   store  (where  Majken  works!)  on  Church  Street,  Burlington,  VT,  in  December.  Majken’s   parents,  Mike  and  Sue  Tranby,  own  Shore  Acres  Restaurant  and  lodging  in  North  Hero,   VT,  and  Majken  remains  close  with  her  Kiniya  friends.  Her  roommate  in  Burlington  is   none  other  than  Ann  Carpenter  (Kiniya  1994-­2001)  who  graduated  from  UVM  in  2006   and  has  lived  in  Burlington  ever  since!  Majken  promises  to  visit  this  summer. #18002  Martha  Storey,  taking  a  walk  in  Placida,  FL,  population  around  1800,  spotted   a  young  man  fishing.  “Caught  anything  yet?”  she  asked.  The  young  man  turned  around,   looked  at  her  sporting  her  Dudley-­Kiniya  hat,  and  said,  “Wait  a  minute  .  .  .  is  that  Camp   Dudley  —  on  Lake  Champlain?”  Equally  surprised,  Martha  said,  “It  is.”  “Wow!  I’m   #19918  Peter  Kowalski,  from  Burlington,  VT,  and  I  was  at  Camp  four  years  ago.”  The   #19918  Peter  Kowalski  in   next  day  brother  #18518  Jack  Kowalski,  who  is  a  student  at  Furman  University,  and  who   Placida,  FL. was  recently  a  leader  at  Dudley,  joined  Peter  and  his  family.

Transitions . . . Chairman Poler to Chairman Quigley

T

here  was  no  doubt  that  #11889  Dwight  Poler  would  become  a  Dudleyite.  His   grandfather,  #3043  E.  Edson  Poler,  came  in  1919  and  his  father,  #7689  Hank   Poler,  in  1948.  Dwight  came  in  1976,  and  met  his  young  leader  #11264  Mark  “Davo�   Davenport.  Dudley  lessons  learned  well,  Dwight  was  named  to  the  Board  and  became   Chairman  in  2009.

#10643  Matt  Quigley’s  route  to  the  Dudley  Board  was  less  predictable.  Largely  raised   in  a  single  parent  Wilton,  CT  home,  his  working  mom  was  invited  by  Dudley  ambassa-­ dors  Endy  and  Pat  Perry,  to  “come  over  for  a  Dudley  Reunion.�    Recalled  Matt,  “The   Perrys  were  effusive  about  Dudley  and  my  Mom  was  instantly  sold!  I  took  the  New   York  to  Westport  train  and  was  warmly  greeted  for  the  summer  of  1968.  My  younger   brother,  #11184  Peter,  came  to  Dudley  three  years  later.� Said  Dwight  of  his  five  years  as  Board  Chair,  “We  expected  great  summers,  happy  par-­ ents,  glowing  kids.  We  did  not  expect    the  collapse  of  ‘the  Banks’  (not  financial  institu-­ tions,  but  the  banks  of  Lake  Champlain,  just  before  Camp  started!);    the  movement/ rebuilding  of  five  cabins;  a  new  director,  business  manager,  and  development  director   search;  launching  the  NOLS  program;    revamping  the  leadership  development  pro-­ gram  or  the  2013  summer  noro-­virus!    So  much  unexpected,  but  such  extraordinary   resources:    two  Directors  who  make  the  hardest  challenges  look  easy;  a  leadership  team   that  delivers  every  summer;  alumni  that  step  up  with  extraordinary  generosity.  It  has   been  a  JOY  to  be  Chairman  of  this  special  place!� Matt  Quigley  brings  solid  Dudley  background  (1968-­74,  camper  through  JL)  and   experience  (Dudley  Board  2006-­10  and  Finance  Chair  for  most  of  his  tenure)  to  the   Board.  Recalls  Matt,  “I  had  seven  wonderful  leaders  at  Camp  and  took  away  some-­ thing  special  from  each.  On  the  coaching  side,    #8070  Ben  Nelson  stands  out  amongst   many  great  Dudley  teachers,  combining  life  lessons  with  his  ministry  of  sport  —  that   much  can  be  accomplished  with  teamwork  and  hard  work  and    we  must  learn  from   our  mistakes.  Ben  asked  for  toughness  on  the  court  but  offered  empathy  off  it,  and  he   was  always  there  for  you.�

Dudley Welcomes New Board Members Mike Bransford  #13033  —  Minneapolis,  MN

Mike arrived  at  Dudley  in  1981  during  the  Willie  era.  Growing  up,  Mike  had  heard   countless  Dudley  stories  but  was  eager  to  make  sense  of  it  himself.  It  all  came  together   when  Mike’s  Cub  leader,  Doug  “the  Bug  Man”  Schmidt,  decided  to  parachute   (unannounced)  into  main  campus  on  July  4th.  In  Mike’s  words,  “It’s  tough  for  a   10-­year  old  to  pin  down  the  Dudley  experience,  but  the  impact  is  real.  Dudley  offers   an  amazing  combination  of  experiences  at  precisely  the  right  age  –  exposure  to  new   activities  and  perspectives,  heartfelt  support  and  encouragement,  hilarious  sponta-­ neity,  gratitude,  rock-­solid  friendship,  and  appreciation  for  the  value  in  putting  the   other  fellow  first.” Says  Mike,  “Dudley  has  been  a  bedrock  in  our  family  since  my  dad,  #8982  Roger   Bransford,  stepped  foot  on  campus  in  1955.  My  dad  grew  up  down  the  street  from   best  pal,  #8804  John  Storey,  in  Chatham  NJ,  who  introduced  him  to  Dudley.”  Roger   relished  all  things  Dudley  and  remained  a  fixture  at  camp  throughout  his  life,  serving   as  camper,  leader,  fabled  painter  of  red  rock,  former  Board  Chairman,  and  CDA  Man   of  the  Year  in  1997,  the  year  he  passed  away.  Mike  shared  memorable  camper  years   (1981-­1984)  with  his  brothers,  #12743    Jeff  and  #13623    Steve.  Mike  and  his  wife,   Gretchen,  have  three  children:  #22033  Henry,  #22733  Rose,  and  #TBA  William,   who  are  hard  at  work  on  their  own  camp  stories.

For more  than  a  century,  beginning  with  camper  #742  Eugene  Cowlin  (Jack’s  grand-­ father  and  a  boyhood  friend  of  Chief  Beckman),  the  family  has  been  a  presence  at   Dudley.  Jack’s  first  year  was  1949;  he  served  as  a  JL  and  leader  during  the  summers   of  1954-­56.  Though  he  was  involved  in  the  Rhythm  Ramblers  and  edited  The  Last   Whistle,  it  was  a  love  of  the  outdoors  that  truly  captured  his  interest  for  the  rest  of  his   life.  Jack  and  his  wife,  Katie,  honeymooned  in  Westport,  with  Director  Bob  Marshall   announcing  their  marriage  at  hymn  sing  in  July,  1961!   After  a  Ph.D.  at  Cornell,  postdoctoral  appointments,  and  several  years  on  the  faculty   of  Kansas  State,  Jack  and  Katie  settled  in  Oneonta,  New  York,  where  Jack  led  a  dis-­ tinguished  career  as  Professor  of  Chemistry  at  SUNY-­Oneonta.  He  won  numerous   awards  for  teaching,  among  them  being  named  a  SUNY  Distinguished  Teaching  Pro-­ fessor.  Jack  was  an  accomplished  speaker  and  lecturer,  as  well  as  coauthor  of  funda-­ mental  textbooks  for  inorganic  and  general  chemistry.

As a  camper,  leader  and  assistant  division  head  during  the  summers  of  1990-­2001,   Mark  became  intimately  familiar  with  Camp  Dudley,  and  he  carries  many  of  the  fond   and  nostalgic  memories  that  most  alums  do.  Mark  was  connected  to  Dudley  through   a  friendship  with  the  Perry  family  of  Wilton,  CT  and  through  his  grandfather,  Frank   Hutchins,  who  treasured  the  Adirondacks  and  lived  by  Dudley  values  in  every  way.

Today, Mark’s  enthusiasm  for  camp  is  stronger  than  ever:  “There  is  no  institution,  no   mission,  no  community  that  I  hold  more  sacred,  and  in  today’s  fast-­paced,  individu-­ alistic  culture,  there  is  no  motto  more  important  than  ‘The  Other  Fellow  First.’”  He   anticipates  bringing  his  industry  experience,  constructive  perspective,  and  energy  to   his  role  on  the  Board  of  Managers. Mark  and  his  wife,  Emily,  live  in  Cambridge,  MA.  Mark  works  for  Google,  Inc.  as  an   Account  Executive  focused  on  digital  media.  Since  joining  Google  he  has  served  on   a  healthcare-­focused  team,  helping  clients  with  ongoing  digital  marketing  efforts,  and   rethinking  healthcare  delivery  and  discovery  via  web-­based  platforms.  Mark  is  pas-­ sionate  about  supporting  innovation  through  technology  and  efficiently  connecting   patients  to  the  quality  care  they  need.  Mark  previously  worked  in  healthcare  consult-­ ing  and  later  served  as  a  Product  Manager  for    Johnson  &  Johnson. Mark  brings  his  love  of  camp,  an  empathy  for  the  pressures  on  college-­age  leaders,  a   deep  belief  in  Dudley  tradition  coupled  with  a  material  understanding  of  the  need   for  change  and  evolution.  He  also  possesses  an  inherent  bent  toward  diversity  and   inclusion,  and  an  interest  in  bringing  Dudley  out  into  the  world.  Mark  looks  forward   to  the  opportunity  to  become  more  involved  in  the  mission  of  enriching  young  peo-­ ples’  lives  and  supporting  the  Dudley-­Kiniya  foundational  pillars  of  service,  character,   leadership,  compassion  and  integrity.

emember  a  world  without  smartphones  and  email?  We  do  too.  The  oldest  data-­ base  at  Camp  is  an  impressive  piece  of  history—a  handwritten  ledger  holds  the   names  and  camp  numbers  of  every  Dudleyite  to  ever  grace  the  hallowed  grounds   of  Dudley.  It’s  a  treasure  indeed,  but  in  today’s  digital  world  the  ability  to  keep  in   touch  with  our  Dudley  family  requires  slightly  more  information  than  just  camp  num-­ bers  (sadly). The  switch  from  manual  to  digital  record  keeping  has  been  a  lesson  in  perseverance   for  our  tenacious  office  staff,  as  it  requires  frequent  updates.  It  is  an  exciting  step  for-­ ward,  but  the  switch  has  reminded  us  of  a  few  things:    

1 Email  addresses  and  phone  numbers  are  notably  more  useful  than  camp       numbers  when  it  comes  to  getting  in  touch,  but

      

2 Even  if  we  have  yours  on  file,  they  might  not  be  up  to  date.  If  you’ve       changed  your  email  address  from  something  like  hotjock96@aol.com,  great     move  (Davo)‌but  send  us  the  new  one!

              

3  Finally,  not  everyone  has  made  a  personal  switch  to  the       digital  age,  which  means  they  might  not  even  have  access  to     the  website,  our  last  line  of  defense.  Our  outreach  to  our       Dudley  family    extends  only  as  far  as  permitted  by  the  tools   at  our  disposal,  and  our  tools  need  some  work.  If  you’ve       changed  your  email,  you  don’t  have  email,  or  your  phone       number  and/or  home  address  has  changed,  we  can’t  see  you       and  you  can’t  see  us.  And  that’s  no  way  to  be!

If  you’re  reading  this,  we’re  thrilled  you  are  connected  with  Camp.  You  know  just  how   special  it  is  to  attend  reunion  in  August,  to  welcome  Matt  and  Marnie  to  your  home-­ town,  to  read  the  CD  News  and  to  hear  about  all  of  the  exciting  happenings  at  Camp.   If  you  lost  touch  for  a  while  and  then  reconnected,  you’ve  experienced  that  visceral   thrill  when  you  first  set  foot  back  on  campus.  We  want  all  of  our  Dudleyites  to  experi-­ ence  that  feeling. Here’s the problem:  The  ones  we’re  looking  for  are  obviously  not  reading   this.  The  unfortunate  reality  is  that  we’re  only  in  touch  with  about  25%  of  our   living  Dudleyites,  not  including  current  and  recent  campers.  Sadly,  the  others   probably  don’t  even  know  we’re  looking  for  them.  It  is  our  mission  to  at  least  triple   that  number  by  2017.   Now here’s the fun part:  We’re  compiling  a  list,  organized  by  camp  num-­ ber,  of  all  Dudleyites  for  whom  we  have  no  recent  contact  info.  Do  you  see  the   names  of  your  friends/aides/Als  and  JLs  or  leaders?    Do  you  remember  how  in-­ tegral  they  were  to  your  Dudley  experience??  Are  you  surprised  they’re  on  our  Lost

That  year,  the  Campâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  total  operating  budget  was  $8,725.  Tuition  for  the  9-­week  sum-­ mer  had  been  nudged  up  to  $72.    A  round-­trip  ticket  from  Grand  Central  Station   to  â&#x20AC;&#x153;the  Westport  milk  stationâ&#x20AC;?  was  $8.50,  and  the  Camp  Directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  salary  was  $400.     Some  groused  that  he  was  overpaid! Camp  founder  Sumner  Dudley,  who  had  started  with  seven   boys  in  1885,  would  have  been  amazed  that  Camp  was  expect-­ ing  245  boys  and  men  that  summer  in  their  â&#x20AC;&#x153;permanent  Dudley   homeâ&#x20AC;?  on  the  former  Roe  farm  on  what  would  become  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dudley   Road.â&#x20AC;?  Our  beautiful  location  had  been  acquired  with  the  help   of  the  NY  State  YMCA  Executive  Committee  some  seven  years   earlier,  in  1908.

THE  CAMP  DUDLEY  NEWS

Then,  Chief,  in  a  burst  of  energy  and  fund  raising  enthusiasm,  was  hap-­ py  to  announce  that  the  summer  of  1914  would  be  â&#x20AC;&#x153;bigger  and  better   than  ever.â&#x20AC;?  As  reported  in  the  Dudley  Doings,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;During  Christmas  week   the  Chief  tried  a  new  stunt  and  made  a  trip  through  New  York  State   to  hold  a  number  of  Reunions  in  the  various  Dudley  Centers.â&#x20AC;?  Stops   were  made  in  Albany,  Gloversville,  Watertown,  Rochester,  Buffalo,  and   Jamestown  for  the  first  time.  


Lest  there  be  any  doubt  in  parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  minds  that  Camp  was  for   the  boys,  a  new  sign  went  up  on  the  front  gate  which  read,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Visitors  welcome  on  Wednesday  afternoons  from  2-­5  pm.â&#x20AC;?   Two  major  new  facilities  were  dedicated: Â&#x2021;7KHEUDQGQHZ$YHU\%RDW+RXVHRQ:HQVOH\%D\VLWWLQJ just  where  it  sits  today.    This  was  made  possible  by  a  gift  from   Samuel  P.  Avery  in  1913. Â&#x2021;7KHÂł3RVW0DQXDO7UDLQLQJ%XLOGLQJ´FRQVWUXFWHGE\/HDG-­ ers  and  Campers  about  where  Arts  and  Crafts  sits  now.    Much   of  what  camp  used,  from  row  boats  to  Adirondack  chairs,  were   built  here,  again  by  the  Leaders  and  Campers.

7KH$YHU\%RDWKRXVHEXLOWLQ

On  the  eve  of  Campâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  opening,  Chief  said,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;What  a  glorious  Camp  we  should  have   this  summer!    With  the  carpenter  shop  and  the  new  boat  house  available,  and  the   extensive  program  planned  for  this  yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  camp,  Dudley  should  experience  the  best   season  in  its  entire  history.â&#x20AC;? The  season  itself  was  an  unqualified  success.  The  first  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Indian  Pageantâ&#x20AC;?  was  written,   charting  the  sagas  of  the  tribes  of  North  America,  and  held  in  the  Archery  Glen. Hikers  departed  for  the  high  peaks,  including  Marcy,  Hurricane,  Bald  Knob,  and  on   the  other  side  of  the  Lake,  Snake  Mountain. Day  trips  to  discover  the  glories  of  Vergennes,  Ausable  Chasm,  Fort  Ticonderoga,   Montreal  and  Lake  Placid  took  place.     And,  at  the  final  banquet,  much  like  those  enjoyed  at  Dudley  today,  Chief  spoke,  say-­ ing,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;It  is  not  the  programs  and  buildings  alone  that  make  Camp  successful.  It  is  the   spirit  and  the  traditions  that  make  Camp  Dudley  what  it  is.â&#x20AC;? And  so  it  is  today  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  100  years  later.

A beautiful and much larger garden peeks from behind the barn and awaits campers to come water, weed and eat what is grown. Hikes and paddling excursions to new and old sites await, and campers will be greeted with the friendly faces of alumni as well as some new (and more!) outdoor staff. The brand-new challenge course (detailed in diagram above) offers opportunities to play meaningful games, practice problem solving skills with cabin and team groups, as well as have a thrilling good time.

Father -­  Son  Weekends By  Dudley  Dad  Bob  McCann  

To visit  Camp  Dudley  in  the  middle  of  an  Adirondack  winter  is  a  treat.  I  have   done  it  with  each  of  my  four  sons  for  the  past  10  years  as  part  of  the  Dudley   Father-­Son  weekend.  The  idea  of  the  weekend  is  to  introduce  potential  Cubs  to   the  camp  and  build  their  enthusiasm  for  attending  the  following  summer.  The   boys  loved  it…each  and  every  one  of  them.  Want  to  know  a  little  secret?  The  fathers   love  it  more. Day  #1:    We  arrive  in  Westport  on  Friday  after  dark.  Pulling  into  a  darkened,   snow-­  covered  campus  and  seeing  MacLean  fully  lit  and  inviting  is  a  wonderful   start  to  the  weekend.  The  fire  is  roaring,  Matt  and  Davo  are  there  to  give  a  warm   hello  and  one  immediately  smells  dinner.  The  young  cubs-­to-­be  stand  close  to  their   fathers  for  about  2  minutes,  then  see  a  number  of  boys  playing  Foosball  and  ping   pong  and  are  off  to  the  races.  We  stow  our  bags  upstairs  and  watch  a  blur  of  boys,   now  dressed  for  the  winter  cold,  run  outside  to  play  Manhunt  or  King  of  the  Hill.   The  fathers  are  left  to  affix  a  nametag  and  introduce  themselves  to  everyone.  With   no  mobile  service,  we  all  realize  we  will  be  untethered  from  our  phones  for  three   days.  That’s  when  our  smiles  broaden  and  we  sit  happily  by  the  fire  and  talk.  For   the  new  fathers,  there  are  lots  of  questions  asked  and  answered.  For  those  lucky   enough  to  return,  it  is  a  welcome  respite  from  the  daily  grind.  After  dinner,  our   hosts  lead  a  brief  Vesper  and  we  are  encouraged  to  get  some  sleep  because  Saturday   will  be  a  day  packed  with  activity.

Day #2:    After  a  North  Country  breakfast,  we  listen  to  a  Chapel  Talk,  which  cap-­ tures  our  attention  and  makes  you  happy  to  be  in  the  company  of  your  son.  The   Dudley  spirit  begins  to  seep  into  each  young  boy  (and  father).  As  instructed,  we   dress  in  layers,  arm  ourselves  with  water  and  gorp,  don  snowshoes  and  hike  out   to  Albany  Island  over  a  frozen  solid  Lake,  before  heading  to  a  local  hill  for  a  hike   which  offers  stunning  views.  At  the  summit,  many  of  the  older  gang  can  be  heard   muttering  for  the  need  to  “get  to  the  gym”    and  be  grateful  that  it  is  all  downhill   from  here.  The  boys  display  boundless  energy  on  the  way  up  and  down  and  always   seem  to  be  waiting  for  us  to  “hurry  up!”    By  now,  they  are  100%  sold  on  their  Cub   year  and  we  are  too!    Lunch  is  followed  by  a  mandatory  rest  period  (Davo  doesn’t   have  to  tell  us  twice),  and  the  boys  relish  this  quiet  time  with  their  fathers.  The   afternoon  ends  in  the  cold  gym,  with  the  boys  and  some  fit  fathers,  trying  out  the   climbing  wall,  playing  floor  hockey  and  basketball.  Finally,  a  spirited  Fathers  vs   Sons  Dodge  Ball  marathon  ends  the  day.  The  fathers  are  there  to  win  and  the  no-­

tion of  a  calm  toss  of  the  ball  disappears  with  the   opening  whistle.  While  hiking,  we  complained   about  weak  legs.  Now,  our  throbbing  arms  re-­ mind  us  we  are  not  as  young  as  our  opponents.   The  dinner  bell  rings,  we  limp  and  they  sprint  to   MacLean.  The  day  ends  with  a  wholesome  din-­ ner  and  Vespers  led  by  an  older  camper.  The  fire   keeps  us  company  and,  before  long,  our  sons  are   sitting  next  to  us  as  weary  as  we  are. Day  #3:    Davo  brings  the  Sunday  papers  and  be-­ gins  to  prepare  his  world-­class  brunch.  The  boys   emerge  from  their  beds  in  PJs  (and  bed  heads)   and  immediately  go  to  play  with  their  new  friends.  We  gather  for  an  informal  Sunday   Service,  where  we  are  treated  to  a  wonderful  speaker  and  Dudley  hymns.  We  all  marvel   at  how  fast  the  weekend  has  flown  by  and  we  didn’t  miss  our  phones  one  bit.  One   more  meal  is  served  and  the  spirit  of  Camp  Dudley  has  lassoed  another  bunch  of  eager   campers  for  the  summer.

Father and  Son  weekend  had   OHVVRQVIRUERWKJHQHUDWLRQV

Driving away  is  always  bittersweet.    Each  father  is  happy  to  have  had  an  uninterrupted   weekend  with  his  son.    As  we  all  know,  these  are  times  to  be  cherished.    We  only   wish  it  could  have  lasted  one  more  day.    Our  boys  regale  us  in  all  they  did,  what  they   learned  and  how  they  can’t  wait  to  get  back  in  the  summer.    On  Parents’  Weekend,  we   will  see  them  waiting  for  us,  anxiously  sitting  on  the  hill,  ready  to  tell  us  how  much   fun  they  have  had.   No  matter  what  the  season,  there  is  nothing  better  than  Camp  Dudley.

Winter Leadership  Trip By  #17676  Dylan  Pollock

There is  no  better  way  to  end  a  year  than  by   going  on  the  AL  Winter  Leadership  trip!  Our   December  expedition  had  10-­graduated  ALs,   #16119  Marlon  Fisher  and  myself,  spending  a   week  camping  at  Stacy.  The  group  was  part  of  a   trail  crew,  went  ice  climbing,  camped  in  the  Ad-­ irondack  Park,  and  still  had  time  to  dial  in  their   leadership  skills. Four  years  ago  #15509  Scott  Steen  developed   the  AL  Winter  Leadership  trip.  With  the  help   of  #15093  Ryan  Joyce,  the  program  started  from   Pine  Lodge.  The  mission  of  the  trip  was  to  give   $/VJDLQDGGLWLRQDOOHDGHUVKLSVNLOOVZKLOHRXWLQWKHZLOGHUQHVV1RWHWKHVLPLODULW\ the  boys  another  opportunity  to  have  an  experience   EHWZHHQWKLVSKRWRDQGRQHWDNHQ DERYH FLUFDZKHQ&KLHIZDVWKHGLUHFWRU SPRING  2014

such  as  the  Aides  and  sharpen  their  leadership  skills  before  the  summer  of  becoming  a   leader.  It  was  part  of  a  graduated  process  of  growth.  Steen  felt  the  mix  of  winter  sport   blended  with  leadership  development  was  just  the  right  environment.

Each  day  the  group  was  broken  into  different  teams.  The  Leaders  of  the  Day  made  the   major  decisions  of  how  the  day  would  be  organized,  times  for  meals,  and  made  sure   that  the  group  was  prepared.  Cooking  groups  were  assigned  by  day,  and  at  night  a  pair   of  boys  would  give  a  Vesper.  From  the  beginning  to  the  end,  the  ALs  ran  the  trip,  and   that  was  the  beauty  of  it.                         This  winter  trip  was  like  no  other.  For  the  second  year,  the  expedition  was  based  out   of  a  winterized  yurt  in  the  Stacy  wilderness.  Although  at  times  we  worked  hard,  it  was   all  fun.  The  first  day  in  Westport  we  joined  the  Champlain  Area  Trails  crew.  Recently,   Chris  Maron,  Director,  has  been  building  a  trail  that  will  connect  Westport  and  Essex.   We  spent  our  day  lopping  and  sawing  away  trees,  manicuring  the  beastly  wilderness   into  a  trail  that  could  be  a  new  Cub  hike.                         On  the  second  day  we  met  two  guides  from  ADK  Rock  and  River  for  some  ice  climb-­ ing.  The  company  has  their  own  private  wall  we  climbed  the  entire  day  by  ourselves.   It  is  amazing  to  have  ice  axes  in  your  hands  and  spikes  on  your  feet.  Many  of  the  guys   stepped  out  of  their  comfort  zone,  finding  the  challenge  of  climbing  a  60-­foot  ice  wall.   It  was  incredible  to  see  how  they  were  willing  to  push   themselves.                         Even  with  all  the  fun,  we  were  able  to  slow  down  and   have  a  Dudley  moment.  On  the  â&#x20AC;&#x153;down  dayâ&#x20AC;?  the  crew   spent  the  morning  wandering  a  snow-­covered  campus.   In  the  afternoon  Davo  made  a  guest  appearance.  The   rest  of  the  day  was  spent  discussing  leadership  and   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Leave  No  Traceâ&#x20AC;?  practices.                         The  last  section  of  the  trip  was  a  day  and  a  half  in  the   Johns  Brook  Lodge  region  on  the  Adirondack  Park.   This  winter  the  park  was  covered  entirely  with  ice.   The  only  means  of  travel  was  with  crampons  (spikes   for  shoes).  In  the  late  afternoon  on  the  last  day  three   members  of  the  team  climbed  to  the  top  of  Lower   Wolfjaw  for  a  panoramic  view  of  the  park.  In  the   morning  everyone  packed  their  bags  and  hiked  out,   ready  to  spend  New  Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  with  their  friends  and  fam-­ ily.  After  lunch  and  the  returning  of  gear  the  trip  was  complete.                         As  it  all  came  to  a  close,  I  thought  about  how  well  Dudley  integrates  leadership  train-­ ing  into  each  stage  of  camp.  Seniors  become  Aides,  each  year  learning  and  gaining   more  responsibility.  It  is  exciting  to  think  of  how  much  has  changed  since  I  was  a  Cub   back  in  1999,  and  wonder  where  it  will  be  10  years  down  the  line.  I  might  be  biased,   but  I  think  we  have  something  very  good  when  it  comes  to  our  wilderness  leadership  trips.


Kiniya  JL  Leadership   weekend Marnie,  Kat,  Mollie  and  summer  staffer  #20194  Mea-­ gan  Oliver  hosted  our  third  JL  Weekend  and  it  was   a  huge  success!  We  had  11  young  women  join  us  in   Westport  for  a  weekend  of  leadership  training  in  prepa-­ ration  for  their  first  summer  as  employees  of  Kiniya.  It   truly  felt  as  though  this  weekend  together  marked  the   beginning  of  Summer  2014.  Chef  Gail  prepared  our   $VFROGDVWKLVZLQWHUZDVLQ:HVWSRUWWKHVHKHDUW\.LQL\DJLUOVORYHG meals  and  our  beloved  Dining  Hall  songs  and  claps   were  rehearsed.  The  highlight  of  the  weekend  included   their  JL  leadership  experience.   snowshoeing  up  to  Yurt  Village  where  Lang  Fu  had   prepared  a  fire  for  us.  Each  and  every  JL  that  was  in   attendance  was  clearly  dedicated  to  her  upcoming  role   and  incredibly  enthusiastic  for  the  summer  ahead.   Yoha!

Mother/Daughter  Weekend March  has  become  a  very  special  time  of  year  for  Kiniya   as  we  welcome  several  different  groups  to  enjoy  some   time  together  in  Westport.  This  year  our  Mother/ Daughter  weekend  had  a  record  number  of  attendees   and  the  weather  could  not  have  been  more  perfect;   sun,  snow,  and  sunsets!  Saturday  was  filled  with  activi-­ ties,  camp  songs,  and  sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mores,  a  snowshoe  trek  up  to   Yurt  Village  and  even  a  walk  on  Lake  Champlain.  Not   to  mention,  the  skill  level  of  friendship  bracelet  mak-­ ing  has  really  improved  over  the  last  few  years,  way  to   go  momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s!  It  is  incredible  to  watch  our  girls  in  their   element  of  Camp  and  share  some  of  our  traditions   with  their  momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.  Coming  off  this  wonderful  weekend   together,  we  are  counting  down  the  days  until  we  can  be   with  our  Camp  family  once  again! .LQL\DGDXJKWHUVZLWK0ROOLHOHIWDQG0DUQLHULJKWHQMR\HGWKHLU special  time  at  Dudley  with  their  mothers  in  late  March.

riting  in  late  February,  I  eagerly  look  forward   to  longer  and  balmier  days  and  a  summer  of   fun  on  Lake  Champlain!  It  has  been  a  tough  winter   in  many  parts  of  the  country,  and  the  thought  of  the   hot  rocks  down  by  Swim  Point  serves  as  a  wonderful   antidote  to  these  cold  and  darker  days!   Dudleyites  have  been  getting  excited  about  their  up-­ coming  summers  since  1885.      Dudley  will  celebrate  its   130th  summer,  and  across  Lake  Champlain  in  Colches-­ ter,  VT,  Camp  Kiniya  will  begin  its  96th  season.  We   can  say  proudly  that  the  more  things  change,  the  more   they  remain  the  same.  While  there  are  many  exciting   changes  afoot  for  the  summer  of  2014,  more  impor-­ tantly,  Dudleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  motto  remains  unchanged  and  carries   as  much  weight  today  as  it  did  a  century  ago.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   Other  Fellow  Firstâ&#x20AC;?  is  a  life  standard  that  has  guided   over  23,500  Dudley  and  Kiniya  campers,  not  only  dur-­ ing  their  summers  of  fun  but  also  as  they  returned  to   their  communities. 100  years  ago,  Director  Chief  Beckman  greeted  the   leadership  team  and  arriving  campers  to  the  1914   season  saying,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;What  a  glorious  Camp  we  should  have   this  summer!    With  the  carpenter  shop  and  the  new   Avery  boat  house  available  and  the  extensive  program   planned  for  this  yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Camp,  Dudley  should  experi-­ ence  the  best  season  in  its  entire  history!â&#x20AC;?    Chief  Beck-­ manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  enthusiasm  of  a  century  ago  is  echoed  today  by           Directors  Matt  Storey  and  Marnie  McDonagh,  as  they   anticipate  the  arrival  of  over  1,000  campers.  We  all   believe  that  this  will  be  â&#x20AC;&#x153;the  best  summer  yet!â&#x20AC;? As  we  approach  the  summer  of  2014,  we  are  confident   that:

As  I  assumed  the  role  of  Chairman  of  Dudleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Board   of  Managers  at  the  end  of  last  year,  I  was  humbled   to  consider  those  who  have  preceded  me.  I  represent   the  25th  Board  Chair  since  the  Board  of  Managers   was  established  65  years  ago,  and  fully  recognize  that   many  caring  Dudleyites  have  occupied  this  seat  before   me.  I  must  give  special  recognition,  however,  to  my   immediate  predecessor  #11889  Dwight  Poler.  Dwight   encouraged  us  all  to  â&#x20AC;&#x153;leave  it  better  than  you  found  itâ&#x20AC;?   in  whatever  we  are  doing,  on  a  hike,  a  task,  or  per-­ haps  a  problem  to  be  tackled.  Dudley  and  Kiniya  are   profoundly  in  a  better  place  and  position  than  when   Dwight  assumed  the  Chairmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  role  four  years  ago.   Thank  you,  Dwight  for  your  tireless  energy,  effective   leadership  and  vigilant  stewardship  of  the  mission  and   traditions  of  our  two  wonderful  Camps.     Sincerely,     0DWW4XLJOH\


Annual Giving  at  Dudley

T

he Annual  Fund  Campaign  is  the  centerpiece  of  the  development   efforts  here  at  Camp  Dudley  YMCA,  Inc.  Your  generous  support  of   the  Annual  Fund  last  year  helped  more  than  250  Dudley  boys  and  Kiniya   girls  have  the  summer  of  their  lives  on  the  banks  of  Lake  Champlain,  in   Westport  and  Colchester.  Without  your  gift,  they  would  have  missed  out   on  the  joy  of  Dudley. While  unrestricted  gifts  to  the  Annual  Fund  are  predominantly  used  for   scholarship  (75.5%)  the  Fund  is  flexible  enough  to  be  used  for  operational   expense  priorities  such  as  leader/staff  training  and  development,  immedi-­ ate  facility  costs  and  related  program  expenses. The  ethic  of  giving  back  to  Dudley  can  be  traced  all  the  way  to  our  founder,  Sumner  F.   Dudley,  who  was  described  by  Camper  #1  George  Peck  as,  “A  man  who  knew  no   limit  in  doing  for  others.  He  would  impoverish  himself  for  those  in  whom  he  was   interested…he  was  the  most  self-­sacrificing  man  I  have  ever  known.  The  spirit  that   characterized  his  life  is  what  we  know  as  the  Dudley  Spirit.” That  same  Dudley  Spirit,  which  Sumner  Dudley  personified,  led  to  Camp’s  offer-­ ing  a  scholarship  program  as  long  ago  as  1934,  when  we  know  from  our  history   that  “A  scholarship  fund  of  $784  will  benefit  24  boys  this  summer.” We  are  grateful  to  the  more  than  1600  individuals  and  organizations  that  sup-­ ported  the  Annual  Fund  by  contributing  more  than  $927,000  in  fiscal  year  2012-­ 13.  Thank  You!  This  broad  base  of  contributors  who  support  our  Annual  Fund   with  gifts  ranging  from  $0.50  to  $100,000  is  truly  impressive.  We  could  not  do  our   critically  important  work  without  the  generous  financial  support  of  our  Board  of   Managers,  alumni,  parents,  leaders,  staff,  friends  and  so  many  others. Our  challenge  now,  in  2014,  is  to  boost  the  number  of  individuals  who  we  can  count   on  to  support  the  Annual  Fund.  That’s  one  reason  why  staying  connected  and   helping  your  friends  be  in  touch  with  Camp  is  so  very  important.  The  2013-­2014   Annual  Fund  drive  has  been  called  “The  1885  Donor  Challenge.”  Our  goal  is  to   report  at  least  that  number  of  Annual  Fund  supporters  to  the  entire  community   when  our  year  ends  in  September.   Because  you  are  connected,  you  know  the  value  of  our  scholarship  program,  the   quality  of  our  leaders  and  the  great  condition  of  our  campuses.  Your  gift  makes   that  excellence  possible!  Please  use  the  envelope  enclosed  in  this  magazine  or  go   online  now  (www.campdudley.org/givenow)  to  make  your  gift  today  as  the  start   of  the  130th  season  is  fast  approaching.  Thank  you  for  being  part  of  this  faithful   community.

 Budget  Bits  .  .  .    #17600  Fred  Guffey,   Business Manager                             Camp  Dudley,  Westport

Working  with  the  Finance  Committee  of  the  Board  of   Managers,  we  budgeted  for  â&#x20AC;&#x153;break  evenâ&#x20AC;?  this  year  on   revenues  of  approximately  $4.3  million.   Our actual revenue experience reflected: Â&#x2021;+LJKHUWKDQH[SHFWHGUHYHQXHDOORZLQJ'XGOH\ in  Westport  to  post  a  budget  surplus  in  excess  of   $300,000.  This  in  turn  was  based  on; Â&#x2021;7KHVWURQJ'HYHORSPHQWHIIRUWVRI'DYH/DQJVWRQ and  Dawn  Gay,  and  tremendous  support  from  the   Dudley  family,  resulting  in  a  record  year  for  annual   giving,  and Â&#x2021;7XLWLRQUHYHQXHVH[FHHGLQJRXUIRUHFDVWDVWKH demand  for  Camper  and  Aide  positions  continued  to   grow  and  as  we  budgeted  annual  increases  in  the   3%  range.  Our  NOLS  (National  Outdoor  Leadership   School)  and  German  Exchange  revenue  were  â&#x20AC;&#x153;right   on  track.â&#x20AC;?    We  also  experienced  higher  revenue  than   budgeted  for  our  off-­season  programming. On the expense side: Â&#x2021;0RVWH[SHQVHVZHUHYHU\FORVHWRRXUEXGJHWUDQJH Food  Service  expenses  were  higher  than  budgeted  but   not  necessarily  unexpected.  A  background  note;  Dud-­ ley  took  on  the  management  of  our  own  Food  Service   Program  this  past  year  (previously  handled  by  outside   service  provider  Sodexho).  This  included  the  addition   of  a  full-­time  Food  Service  Director  along  with  a  very   strong  emphasis  on  a  healthier  and  more  nutritious   diet,  utilizing  local  vendors  for  fresher  produce.     Â&#x2021;3URJUDPH[SHQVHVZHUHKLJKHUWKDQSURMHFWHGGXHWR the  replacement  of  non-­serviceable  athletic  equipment,   the  leasing  of  one  additional  van,  and  the  increased   cost  of  first  aid  training.     Â&#x2021;6FKRODUVKLSH[SHQVHVFRQWLQXHWRULVHGXHWRHFR-­ nomic  factors,  with  a  larger  number  of  families  seeking   aid  annually. Â&#x2021;12/6H[SHQVHVZHUHXSGXHWRWKHLQFUHDVHGFRVWRI transportation  to  our  base  camp  in  Wyoming.

Our  budget  surplus  was  used  to  make  the  final  payment   for  the  Bank  Stabilization  (Erosion  Control)  Project,   which  was  deferred  by  the  Contractor  from  FY2012,  as   well  as  the  pending  Solar  Project  for  Beckman  Hall  and   some  potential  new  uses    being  considered  by  the  Camp   Dudley  Board  of  Managers.

Camp Dudley  at  Kiniya,  Colchester ,iÛi˜ÕiÃ\ Kiniya  now  has  revenues  of  approximately  $1.7  million.   As  with  Camp  Dudley  in  Westport,  higher  than  expect-­ ed  revenue  resulted  in  a  budget  surplus  of  slightly  more   than  $60,000.  Most  of  the  increase  can  be  attributed   to  the  record  setting  year  for  Annual  Giving  as  well  as   higher  than  expected  miscellaneous  revenue. Expenses: Overall  expenses  ran  true  to  form  with  the  exception  of   slight  increases  in  staff  development  training,  food  costs   and  utilities  costs  (our  propane  vendor  sold  out  and   the  new  vendor  raised  our  prices  significantly  before  we   were  able  to  switch).    Development  expenses  were  lower   than  expected  due  to  the  same  reasons  listed  for  Camp   Dudley  in  Westport. Funds  from  the  surplus  were  used  to  offset  additional   costs  of  capital  projects.

It is important to note that we also maintain: Â&#x2021;D'HSUHFLDWLRQ5HVHUYH)XQGZKLFKFXUUHQWO\VWDQGV at  $875,000.    It  was  this  fund  that  allowed  us  to  move   immediately  when  we  were  faced  with  a  $1  million  +   â&#x20AC;&#x153;rainy  dayâ&#x20AC;?  and  severe  erosion  of  our  lakefront  banks.   It  is  our  goal  to  get  this  Fund  up  to  $1.5  million  as  a   reserve  for  both  Dudley  and  Kiniya  combined,  and Â&#x2021;DWUDGLWLRQDOEDQNPRUWJDJHQRZDWZKLFK assisted  in  our  acquisition  of  Camp  Kiniya  in  2006.

Lizzie (Long)  Lang,  Brooklyn,  NY,  (Kiniya  1995  –   2002),  has  co-­founded  a  not-­for-­profit  company  called   KITE  (Kids  Inspiring  Tomorrow’s  Education).  KITE’s   mission  is  to  break  barriers  in  education  by  providing   students  around  the  world  with  supplies  for  success.   “KITE  decided  to  start  our  supply  line  with  pencils.   Although  pencils  may  seem  inconsequential  to  most,   they  are  a  hugely  understated  necessity,  unavailable  to  


millions of  children.  A  charter  teacher  in  Zimbabwe   said  it  best,  ‘a  pencil  is  like  a  jewel  and  this  could  be   shared  by  two  students;  an  eraser  is  like  a  diamond.’”   Lizzie  wrote:  “A  few  weeks  ago,  Emily  Blair,  co-­founder,   and  I  drove  down  to  Baltimore  to  deliver  our  first   round  of  pencil  donations  to  KUVA,  Kipp  Ujima  Vil-­ lage  Academy.  We  had  470  pencil  packs  and  sharpeners   in  tow  and  an  eagerness  to  get  to  the  school  that  for   months  had  been  just  a  name  we  recited  as  KITE’s  do-­ mestic  pilot  partner.  Our  efforts  were  finally  coming  to   fruition,  and  when  walking  down  the  school’s  hallways,   painted  with  colorful,  bold  words,  ‘excellence,’  ‘reach,’   ‘college  bound,’  feelings  of  inspiration  and  a  sense  of   peace  came  over  me.  As  86%  of  KUVA’s  students  come   from  families  living  below  the  poverty  line,  these  are  the   words  they  live,  walk  and  breathe.  Equipping  these  kids   with  motivational  tools,  as  well  as  literal  tools  is  key  in   order  to  succeed  in  their  education  and  break  out  of   this  cycle  of  poverty.  It  was  in  that  moment  where  I  said   to  myself,  this  is  why  KITE  was  started.  Our  visit  with   the  school  where  we  spent  time  with  the  students  and   distributed  the  pencils  validated  that  feeling  times  100.   Principal  Lucas  made  our  time  extra  special,  providing   us  the  opportunity  to  share  KITE  with  a  small  group  of   8th  graders  and  get  their  feedback  on  our  work.  They   too  shared  KIPP  (‘Knowledge  Is  Power  Program’)  with   us  and  proudly  rendered  KIPP’s  seven  strengths  that   build  a  student’s  character  —  zest,  self-­control,  curiosity,   optimism,  grit,  social  intelligence  and  gratitude.  It  was   an  exciting  and  invigorating  moment  that  confirmed   -­-­  kids  have  all  the  potential  in  the  world.  Today,  we  are   proud  to  report  we  have  passed  our  pilot  with  flying   colors.  We  are  so  grateful  for  all  of  the  support  we  have   received  in  our  very  humble  beginnings,  and  all  the   more  motivated  to  continue  building  and  learning,   collaborating  and  innovating,  and  hopefully,  inspiring   others.” Phil  Longo  (father  of  Kiniya  Leader  #20859  Liz  Lon-­ go),  Bedford  NY,  met  Lizzie  Lang  for  the  first  time  at   an  Art  Show  where  she  was  selling  Kite  pencils.  The   Longo’s  have  known  Lizzie’s  parents,  Terri  and  Nelson,   for  many  years  but  Phil  noted,  “It  was  great  to  finally   meet  Lizzie!”  He  added,  “My  Elizabeth  is  totally  into   her  service  and  mission.  We  laugh  at  home  about  the   similarities  between  our  Liz  and  Lizzie  Lang  –  they  are  

both Kiniya  girls,  both  grew  up  in  Bedford,  and  with  a   similar  name  and  common  interests!  That’s  one  to  add   to  the  ‘small  world’  department.  We’ll  see  you  in  just  a   few  months.  If  we  ever  see  the  grass  again!” Dudley  Dad,  Paul   Mudie,  coached   the  undefeated  14-­0   Westport,  NY  Eagles   modified  girls  basket-­ ball  with  three  Kiniya   girls  in  the  front  row.   #22675  Taylor   Gough,  #21204  Ellie   Storey  and  #22710   Lizzie  Stephens.   Way  to  go  Westport  girls!
