Dear Friends, How many weeks does it take to understand the magic of Camp Dudley? Until the late 1970’s, nearly all Dudleyites came for the entire summer . . . eight weeks was the only option. By the time I was a Cub in 1985, every cabin still had three to four full-season boys. Today, 95% of our campers are here for a single session only. Can they possibly absorb the Dudley magic in just 27 days? As a possible clue, we’ve just had the most remarkable Father/Son weekend, filled with all of the right ingredients for any successful Camp Dudley event:

Dudley Director #13804 Matt Storey clearing the snow away on the Cub Beach Skating Rink!

We had the perfect mix of new and current campers. We had dads who had not set foot on campus since 1993, others who came on a recommendation of a trusted Dudley friend, and fathers who have been back religiously each winter.

If you are going to live in Westport, with our long, cold winter, you’d better enjoy a ton of snow to play in. With snow all week leading up to the event – and more all weekend – Camp became a winter wonderland. We skied the perimeter of campus, snowshoed through the Stacy Wilderness Area, played king of the mountain at the top of Brodie Hill, and of course skated on the ice. Which leads to . . . Our ice rink on Cub Beach has everyone talking. After a recent trip to Lake Placid where we witnessed a large pond hockey tourney, we decided to try it at Camp. The ice measured 12+ inches thick, was incredibly smooth, so the conditions were perfect. Armed with the shop shovels, the team of dads and sons made quick work of the new snow and we played for hours.* After hockey we retreated to our weekend home, MacLean Lodge, for a roaring fire and camaraderie. And of course . . . Gail Coleman and Josh Olcott led the way in the kitchen keeping us all wonderfully fed for the entire weekend. These two have become quite a team, working hard to insure everyone’s happiness. The highlight? An outdoor chicken roast followed by s’mores on the fire. “The Other Fellow First” lived strong all weekend. Older boys looking out for the younger guys. Dads helping boys, theirs and others, learn how to skate or get their snow shoes on. Three current campers leading a vesper on “Role Models” featuring several fathers, but also sons and staff members from the group. Bunk rooms mixed boys and dads from other families, with everyone insuring each other’s comfort. At the end of the weekend, everyone pitching in to make sure their “cabin” was cleaned. After an event like this, my belief in the power of Dudley . . . for a month or for a weekend . . . to inform our thinking and guide our behavior . . . could not be stronger. Matt #13804 *PS: If you are wondering, the dads won by a goal!

The Camp DuDley News


Dear Friends of Camp, I will never forget the image of Mimi Williams sitting at her desk in the sunny Kiniya office within their home. Strategically sited overlooking the tennis courts and fields below, Mimi loved the warmth of the afternoon sun and the evening sunset. Just steps away would be Jack at his beautiful, heavy cherry desk looking out toward the upper fields. There he took in the morning sun, monitored the busy bird feeders, and spent countless hours overseeing every aspect of Kiniya. Each person entering the Williams home would be met with a warm “Good Morning” or “Hello” coming from the office, where Mimi was working on her latest correspondence with a Kiniya family. Her personal touch was in every letter. She acknowledged each with a handwritten Jack and Marilyn Williams with Marnie and sister note, always with a personal PS. Every issue of the Alumnae News and Sally McDonagh in 2000. Kiniya Record was typed by Mimi and taken to the local printers to be photocopied for distribution. Jack’s annual notebooks were meticulous, with a full accounting of every camper enrolled, tuition payments made, and expenses incurred. He was a masterful businessman and, with Mimi’s personal touch, they were an incredible team. Marilyn and Jack knew every aspect of the Kiniya Operation. They not only knew every camper who came through the gates, but a unique story about each one — their hometown, their parents, their interests and their talents. As noted in the Fall 2014 CD News, Mimi passed away last September at the age of 87. A small group of family and friends celebrated her life on October 25th. Jack passed away at the age of 90 . . . just twelve days later. After spending every day together for 64 years of their marriage — 51 years as co-owners of Kiniya — it seems that spending two months apart was long enough. Recently some treasures emerged from our rich Kiniya archives which can be found on page 26, including handwritten notes, old brochures and newsletters. While Kiniya has fully embraced technology, it is comforting to know that there is such continuity between the old and the new. While our website and social media platforms are just one click away — our fundamental message of the past nine decades remains constant. I think that Jack and Mimi Williams would be pleased with today’s operation . . . that the experience Kiniya provides girls today remains inspiring; that it is camper-centered and mission-driven; and that our pursuit of excellence is fueled by creativity, curiosity and flexibility. Most importantly, I think they’d be pleased to know that we have not lost sight of the importance of genuine conversation and enduring relationships. As we look ahead to the many possibilities for our exceptional camps, I am both thankful for, and humbled by, the strong foundation on which we can build. Jack and Marilyn Williams

Warm regards, Marnie #20001 Spring 2015

Letter to the Editor . . . A letter from #7630 Bill Doescher

Hurd Cabin, 1950, with Leader Cab Woodward (top center), Pete Willmott (bottom left) and Bill Doescher (bottom right).

Poking through the 1948 Last Whistle, we found this sports report. “Cub Division Pennant Race Intense . . . Bucky Doescher pitches two no-hit games in first half.” Pretty impressive! So we tracked down in Scarsdale, NY, who shared some great memories.

“I remember that summer like it was yesterday, with #7593 Tom as my catcher. Pitching for my third no-hitter, a funny thing happened. I was unceremoniously relieved by my third baseman — Handing the ball over, I said something to my coach, , that he didn’t like. He sent me not to the bench, but to my cabin! That was a rude awakening to how a Dudley camper should act and to ‘team play.’ I had to apologize to both teams and all the campers in Cub Lane in order to get my swimming privileges back. It was an important life lesson learned as a 10-year-old. “I was lucky to discover Dudley. My father’s boss, Townsend Foster, CEO of the Foster Brothers Manufacturing Company, encouraged my brother and me to try Dudley. We went to a Utica reunion that Morgan Bisselle organized. His son, and I were on the Westminster Presbyterian Church basketball team and his older brother, was our coach. I was sold. “I spent five glorious summers at Dudley. My first leader in Burr was a teddy bear of a man named Everybody at Camp had a nickname and a number. I loved baseball and basketball, but even learned to like a 5-day canoe trip. I played both a girl and a boy in H.M.S. Pinafore in 1951. I’ll never forget #6511 Norm antics every 4th of July or the annual Indian Pageant. My Aide year (1952), #8481 Zenro Osawa was our Junior Leader. It was the first time I had met a Japanese national and we quickly became friends. That friendship helped prepare me for future travel to Japan and 32 other countries while working for Dun & Bradstreet. “I never went to Prep School, but as I think back on this, Dudley really was my prep school, preparing me not just for college but for the life that lay ahead of me. “My brother, #7004 Bob, came as did another pal who passed away in 2007. We lived a football field away from one another in Utica and always stayed in touch. Dick was the only person to be in both of my weddings, which I noted at his memorial service. The mourners laughed, but I was serious because it was a great honor to have him with me on both occasions. “On a golf outing in the mid-2000s, Dick and I were in the foursome that won a Jackie Robinson Foundation (JRF) golf tournament. Established in 1973 by Rachel Robinson, now 92, in honor of her husband, the JRF is one of the nation’s premier education and

leadership development programs for minority college students. I am proud to have served its Board for 18+ years where I also ran into Dudley alum er. He and I once did the D-U-D cheer in their boardroom! “ ‘The Other Fellow First’ may not always have been top of mind, but that Dudley phrase has had an enormous impact on my life since 1948. On occasion, I used it to make a point in a corporate or non-profit organizational setting. Other times I’d find myself doing things for others without even thinking about it. and his wife, #13283 Holly, lived that motto each time they visited my father and step-mother in Hamilton, NY, when they were ailing in their later years. “Dudley has also meant lifelong friendships. Once a Dudley friend, always a Dudley friend. I can recall competitive games with Dudley pals such as the extra inning game when and were locked in a pitchers’ duel on the Junior Diamond by the dining hall and lasting through lunch! (Clark beat Maynard, 2-1, in 15 innings.) Others on the field and diamond those summers were and others. Many remained friends long after Dudley days were over. At Colgate, Dohm was a fraternity brother and and #7480 Bill Knowles were students. “Over the years, ‘Dudley meetings’ just seemed to happen. One time , my Leader in 1950, and a tremendous role model and who was then Vice Chairman of ITT, invited me to his office. When I arrived, he said, ‘C’mon, I want you to meet somebody.’ The next thing I knew we were in the Chairman’s office performing the Dudley cheer for him! The CEO loved it! In Scarsdale, I still see Dudleyites , and Dudley parents Kevin and Anne Lyons. “Long after the failed no-hitter, , former FEDEX CEO, retired from Carson Pirie Scott in Chicago. The Wall Street Bill Doescher with public relations students from Journal ran an article that reported his severance package. I wrote City College of New York, May 2014, when Bill received to him saying, ‘I wouldn’t pay you $5 to be my third baseman.’ My the John W. Hill Award. The award “recognizes leadership in the development of public relations practices and phone rang promptly the next day! the highest standards of integrity.”

“Camp has served me and so many others well. Good night, ” Following his no-hitters, Bill Doescher became a sports writer in Binghamton, NY, and then built a 50+-year career in public relations and corporate communications. He graduated from Colgate University, and the Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. He was with Dun & Bradstreet for 22 years before forming the Doescher Group, a communications/consulting firm, where he is President and CEO. Remembering “The Other Fellow First,” he has sponsored JRF students and established the Doescher Campaigns Lab for Advertising & Public Relations at Newhouse and an annual award to recognize top PR students. He and Linda Blair, a noted Interior Designer, have been married for 37 years. Together they have four children and seven grandchildren. Spring 2015

Patrick arrived at Camp Dudley in 1977 and spent 12 summers as a camper, leader, and division head. Six summers were spent within his beloved Cub Division, which anchored Patrick’s belief that life has the potential to be one endless “Extravaganza!.” The Dudley tradition has firm roots in the Butler family. It continues with Patrick’s daughter #21482 Natalie, his brother , John’s wife #22041 Kim and their children: , and .

Small World Two middleaged guys are on a ferry from the island of St. Thomas in the Caribbean en route to Tortola. Yes, we know — life can be hard sometimes. They wind up sitting Bob Stroud and Rick Tomlinson on the ferry to Tortola! back to back to each other. Midway through the trip, having completed their coffee and newspaper, they decide to chat. “Where are you from?” asks the slightly older gentleman. “Northern New York State,” the slightly younger one responds. “Ah, I used to go to Camp up that way,” gent #1 responds. “Which one?” asks gent #2. “Camp Dudley,” responds gent #1. “9606,” shouts . “8608,” responds Bob followed by loud hoots and hollers. “I remember you,” said Rick. “I was on the Cub Diamond, supposedly playing baseball, but was easily distracted. You were a Coach and yelled at me.” That would have been the summer of 1960, a mere 55 years ago, when young Rick was a Cub in Watson and Bob was Cub D-Head in Burr. Ah those Cub Diamond memories. Said Rick, “What are the chances of running into your Cub D-Head on a ferry in the British Virgin Islands?” Rick and Julie had a great week on a 46-foot catamaran with #9555 Randy and Sib Quayle. Bob and Tuey spend time on Virgin Gorda each winter.

Kiniya camper and Dudley staffer Nicoll wrote to Marnie after seeing the “small world” note and picture of her brother marrying a Kiniya woman, waterfront early 2000s. “Couldn’t believe my eyes when we saw the small world note in the CD News!! What a hoot! The plot thickens though – Shaina married , my brother, who was at Dudley from Cubs – JL, as was my Dad, . . . small, small world. Shaina is another addicted to the tradition! Will share the “zine” with them and have them update their addresses when they move. Give #15017 Evan and #18079 Diana a hug for me . . . miss them dearly.” wrote to Matt, “My roommate and best friend at Fordham, Madison, ran the NYC marathon yesterday for Camp Korey, a Seattle based summer camp for terminally ill children. (http://campkorey. org) The children and families attend for free, thanks to fund raising throughout the year. I was at the after party speaking to the “guest of honor” who had run his first marathon in 17 years and has been battling cancer. Camp Korey offered support to him and his family. He asked me where I was from and I said a tiny town in Upstate NY. He proceeded to tell me he went to camp when he was younger on Lake Champlain and at the same time we both said ‘Dudley.’ His name is and he went Plebe through Senior years. We reminisced on Dudley stories and traditions and it was so great to see him light up over Dudley. He has a son, Charlie, who is 13.”

Jean Stowell, nurse extraordinaire!

When I was in Pinga, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo working with Doctors Without Borders this past year, I spent countless hours on the back of a motorbike traveling through unbelievable muddy and arduous paths in the jungle. I thought a lot during those rides – about the people I served there, who live under the umbrella of violence and a level of chaos unimaginable to most of us. I thought about how lucky I was to work alongside some exceptional colleagues. I thought about reading Heart of Darkness in high school, a book about the mysterious, dangerous jungle of Congo, and how many twists and turns carried me to that very place twenty some years later – this year for the second time. I was barely even aware back then that Congo was a real place with real people. But sometimes, I thought, on those arduous trips, about camp, too . . . what I might want to say to you if I was standing here again some summer, giving a Chapel Talk. There are things I wish I knew, way back when I was 12 and 15 and 20 . . . struggling to find myself, like perhaps some of you are. I was often afraid to do anything that would make me stand out in a way that might make me look weird or uncool. I was nervous for a long time I wouldn’t do things exactly “right.” By choosing the wrong college, the wrong major, the wrong paths . . . because absolutely everyone knows the wrong major can completely ruin the rest of your life! Word of advice: Thankfully, it does NOT! Once, when I was 22, I turned down an opportunity to be a nanny in Paris for an American family for a year because I thought it was more responsible to use my nursing degree. Plus, I’d just bought my first car and I didn’t speak a word of French. (Remember the French part. It will come up later, because nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know.) Sadly, we don’t get a chance to talk to our younger selves, which is somewhat unfortunate because it turns out . . . you learn some cool stuff over the years. Some years ago, I read this sentence in a column – I no longer remember who wrote it, but it forever changed my perspective. “I am not usually aware that I am happy, but I often know I have been.” Do not let this happen. Never let a chance to truly notice when you are filled with joy. Just the act of noticing will make you more present in the moment. When you really pay attention like this, your heart might tell you something important. Joy like this may happen for you at strange and sporadic times. Sometimes, it will happen on the summit of a mountain or after a particularly difficult accomplishment. But it might simply be as you drive alone down the highway, a sky deep and cloudless blue, and with just the perfect song playing on the radio. These will be times when life feels like – just for a moment – like it’s all falling into place. Really notice this. Memorize this feeling, even if you forget the memory itself. Memories are strange, elusive things and some of the best ones fade a little bit over time. Some of the girls on my canoe trip this session might remember what I call

The Camp DuDley News


“go to memories.” There are going to be times in your life, as I mentioned, where everything is exactly as it should be, for whatever reason. Hopefully, you have had a moment or two like this at camp this summer. Take a snapshot of these moments with your heart. You will need them sometimes — these “go to” memories. You will need them to give you courage, to make you laugh, to give you strength to make leaps of faith. Before standing up here this morning, because public speaking is one of my least favorite things on earth, I reminded myself of a speech I gave to our staff in Congo just a couple of months ago at my going away party . . . in somewhat imperfect but very heartfelt French! I have a container of cool rocks at home. I have picked them up around the US and the rest of the world over many years. This is a piece of volcanic rock from the piste (trail) in Pinga, to be added into the mix next week. In that bowl is one from Kiniya’s beach as well . . . sometimes it surprises me I can’t remember anymore exactly where each one came from. When I look into that bowl, I am overwhelmed with how many irreplaceable experiences are contained in those memories even though I can’t always identify them in a linear way. I wish this for you too, as you remember your summer here at camp: that it be a jumble of laughter and challenges and pride and love and trust. I’m going to charge you with a couple of challenges this year. Say yes to at least one invitation to do a thing that scares you because it is unfamiliar. Say no to something too, if it doesn’t feel right at the time. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be alone. In fact, being comfortable being alone is an important life skill. You will, over time, figure out this balance if you listen to your heart. Practice saying yes to yourself. The second thing I encourage you to do is to make a list of things you want to do . . . a so-called “bucket list.” Some of you have already started these, and I absolutely love hearing your ideas! Maybe yours will be 20 before 20, 30 before 30, even 100 things before 100. Dream big when you do this — but think close to home too. Among things on my current list are to ice climb in the Canadian Rockies, learn to make sourdough bread, teach my nephew to ski, and write a thank you letter to a high school teacher who inspired me. Look at your list over the years from time to time and make changes if you want to. There are no penalties for not finishing but you will be amazed at what happens when you put your intentions on paper! I assure you . . . when I wrote this list several years ago. I had absolutely no idea that I would be leaving for India in late October, to work for the next nine months. Number nineteen: go to India . . . check. You will probably forget all of this right after breakfast. Maybe you should. The hardest, hugest, most beautiful work for each of us is to make our own way in the world, and this involves making our own choices, our own mistakes. So let me simply make a promise, one that I am absolutely positive is true for each one of you, and maybe even still for me. The best things you’re ever going to do . . . you haven’t even dreamed of yet.

What interested me most was how I could foster community growth and trust within groups of campers and leaders. It is truly amazing how much we discover through team building exercises.

Dudley models the ideal classroom. At Dudley the classrooms are small, every student is supported, and learning happens in the middle of a community that is committed to having a good time. My job now is to lead discussions around a table--something I’ve been learning how to do from peers and leaders during vespers since I was a Cub. Dudley absolutely put me on the right path to effective teaching. Pirate Ganza, 2013

Williams College Castlemont High School, Oakland, CA Math, Grade 10 Math Recovery Classes, Assistant Coach, Jordan Mickens Varsity Boys’ Basketball, Graduate Classes Ever since I was in 6th grade, I knew I wanted to work in education. I loved being in front of a classroom at an early age and, growing up with much younger siblings, I loved working with young men and women even more. My time at Camp Dudley only helped to solidify this sentiment. As a leader, we battle the exhaustion of supervision and teaching life lessons to our young men 18 hours a day, only to wake up at first whistle to do it all over again. But the unwavering passion and energy that our kids bring to the table every day makes us glad to share such great experiences with our campers, regardless of how


tired we may be. These feelings are synonymous with those that I experience every day teaching. I wanted to love what I chose to do as a career; I love the times spent at Camp Dudley, and teaching became the natural extension of that – during the off-season, at least. The Quidditch Ganza, 2010

t Dudley and Kiniya, we pride ourselves on fostering a workplace culture that encourages and inspires continued growth and professional development. Throughout the off-season, members of our year-round team participate in networking, professional development, and conference opportunities. Here’s a snapshot of our adventures: they participated in the annual consortium gathering of independent not-for-profit camps. The group of 100+ camping professionals discussed common challenges and shared best practices while enjoying the beautiful surroundings of New England. meeting in January where presenter, Catherine Steiner-Adair, author of The Big Disconnect, discussed the challenges of the digital age and the importance Camp’s “unplugged” initiative play in youth social development (YOHA!) #20595 Kat Nelson and represented our Camps in New Orleans in February for the National American Camp Association Conference. Says Mollie, “Going to the ACA national conference is both tinder and spark to my off-season work. I like hearing about other camps best practices. I find the presentations informative, especially if I go in looking to reflect on what we already do well and what we can improve. I came back with a list of “To-Do’s” to integrate ideas including updating leader/staff training, creating fresh and new experiences for our campers, and managing people effectively. The conference crowd is affirming, and I walked away feeling we provide a high quality experience for our campers.” and participated in the Camp Food Industry Conference in March, where Josh presented on Sustainability Initiatives at Dudley. and set off for the American Camping Association Maintenance Conference in late March. manager positions set off for a NOLS Leadership Expedition in Tucson, AZ.

NOLS Staff Trip s we enter into our 4th summer with our NOLS/ Dudley partnership, we couldn’t be more proud of where we’ve been and where we are going. This summer we’ll send more than 40 young leaders into the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming to further their leadership training. Another exciting fact is that we have 41 members of this summer’s leadership team at Dudley and 14 at Kiniya that have graduated from one of our NOLS programs. That’s a remarkable number of which we are very proud. “What’s next?” Marnie and Matt asked themselves last fall during the season ending review. They realized that they would truly benefit from their own Dudley/Kiniya Staff Leadership trip, and in March, ten managers on the yearround team headed to Tucson, AZ, for a week-long backpacking expedition. They focused on topics such as Leadership, Teamwork, Wilderness Skills, Risk Management, and Environmental Impact, while getting first-hand knowledge of the

NOLS program that so many of our young leaders are encountering. The group attending is currently functioning at a high level, but we believe that they can become even stronger managers, and the leadership trip will allow them to do just that. “Each of us was challenged in a way that we were unaccustomed to, and each of us had to live outside of our comfort zone, which is something we ask of our entire community each summer. To partner with NOLS on yet another wonderful leadership program is very exciting,” said Matt.

#7289 Ace Scharges | Dudley Archives January 2015


ORGANIZING

PRESERVING

HISTORY & HERITAGE Created By Brendan Loughman | Dave Langston | Marnie McDonagh So what does it take to preserve the history and archival material of our two great camps? To be sure, the hard work and dedication of many Dudleyites. Camp's Directors have maintained collections of historic documents, photographs and memorabilia from every Dudley era. The archiving process took a major step forward in the late 1990s when a gift from Reed and Nan Harman of California made possible the outfitting of two rooms in MacLean Lodge for a permanent archive. The work of organizing and preserving materials is no small feat. Through the years, alums have played a key role in the preservation process, but there is still so much to do. #7289 Ace Scharges is currently working to further the archival work of others who served in the past. Says Ace, “The mission for preserving our past began 30 years ago. Ever since, steps have been taken to accomplish this task. Today we stand ready to take some giant steps toward the organization and preservation of the history of this unique camp that means so much to so many.” The following collection of materials, summarizing Dudley and Kiniya's history and traditions in the world of publications and communications, shows the value of having that “magical mirror.” This is only a small representation and not a definitive narrative.

THE GREATEST KINIYA TREASURE by #20001 Marnie McDonagh

In search of inspiration for this year’s Open House Tour, I came across the most incredible treasure in Kiniya’s Archives – an original brochure from 1928, approaching Kiniya’s 10th Season! The brochure begins by stating: The Camp’s purpose lies in its name for Kiniya, which means “to inspire,” “to recreate.”

to feel that the Camp is not only run for them but, to a large extent, by them – that is, that they themselves are responsible for the happy atmosphere of the Camp, for the success of its work and for the well-being of their fellow campers.

As we approach Kiniya’s 10th summer as a part of the Dudley family, I have found great comfort in knowing that there are many similarities between the experience of 1928 and the one we share today.

• The first building one comes to, driving through the grounds is Taku Tipi (now known as the Welcome Center). “Taku Tipi” was the generous gift of patrons, campers, staff and friends in 1923.

Here are some direct quotes:

• Kiniya is a small camp, maintaining a large staff, which enables it to render the highest possible service to the individual girl. Its sunny fields, sandy soil and beautiful wooded shores, its gently sloping beach and magnificent views, both of the • Field sports stand next in popularity to water Adirondacks and the Green Mountains, combine in sports.

• The “Trips from Camp” that are taken each summer, to new shores and mountain regions, are not only interesting but they bring into the girls’ lives experiences of primitive life and impressions of nature that are of priceless value. • The quiet hours spent in the Arts Building develop the girl an individual. Group consciousness, for the time being, is lost and


individuality given free rein. The girl is here able to create something of her own imagining and accomplish it through her own effort. • Sunday at Camp is a quiet day for reading, writing and resting . There is a picnic supper servied by the Aides, and after supper, the Song Service.

• Some of the happiest hours of the summer are often spent singing, dancing, rehearsing plays, playing games or enjoying more quietly an evening fire. And no atmosphere fosters better camp friendships and group spirit. It’s so nice to circle back to our founding years and realize that there are a lot of similarities between the “now and then.”

1965 . . . A Change in the Air from the Archives

965 was Camp’s 81st season, and veteran Director 19th at the helm. 10,000 boys had entered the Dudley gates as Marshall, in January ’65 celebrated “The Dudley spirit and the unchanging nature of Camp Dudley.” Wrote Bob, “Each summer seems to be a continuation of the last . . . with the comparatively small turnover in Leadership each year . . . it’s easier to get down to facts and program without having to go through a shakedown period.”

At that moment, Camp and the nation were “business as usual.” Experienced leaders would all be back. #3887 Ken Hafner, at Camp since 1925, was back at the A-Hut, joined by and was in the boathouse. All veterans, everything seemed in alignment.

Director Bob Marshall, circa 1965

A dedicated Board of Managers approved a $151,000 budget for the season, with $44,000 in cash on hand and $177,000 in endowment. Annual Giving reached $11,000. Tuition was increased to $490 for eight weeks, and $250 for the 27 boys whose parents insisted on “just four weeks.” The Board planned the modernization of the Dining Hall and the expansion of Witherbee. Both were, “Built for 250 campers and are now trying to serve 500.” But nationally and internationally, major external forces were about to emerge. In February, President Johnson would authorize the first 3500 U.S. troops in Vietnam. By year end 190,000 troops would be there. Future Dudley director , a senior at West Point, would, soon after graduation, find himself as an artillery officer in Vietnam. Lifelong Dudleyite would miss the summer due to B52 navigator training in the Air Force. Before the U.S. departed in 1973, the nation would be divided, and nearly 60,000 Americans would perish. Domestically, the call for civil rights was about to explode on the national scene. In March, the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was arrested in Selma, Alabama, marching for voter registration. In mid-August, there were six days of riots in the Watts section of Los Angeles, with 34 dead, 1,000 injured. Camp Dudley, with two black campers that summer, had yet to embrace “diversity.” In this “calm-before-the-storm” summer, Dudley remained an oasis with no end of fun. Dudley “characters” such as #7681 , and #8608 kept things lively. Rhythm Ramblers led off each Saturday Night Show with “Stairway to the Stars.” The “Mystery Man,” foisting mischief upon campers, was revealed as , a future Board

“In this ‘calm-before-the-storm’ summer, Dudley remained an oasis with no end of fun.” Chair. The Stacy Brook Country Club ran a full-page advertisement in the Dudley Doings. Camp employed seven women that summer . . . four in the Camp Office, and three as nurses. Marshall kept an eagle eye on these women who were praised in the Last Whistle as “sweethearts.” The hottest new item at the Camp Store was something called “the Frisbee.” Cool campers wore Madras jackets to Chapel, rather than blue blazers. The German Exchange Program, forged between Walter Lutz, who spoke no English, and Bob Marshall, who spoke no German, was now five years old.

Junior Division Coming to Kiniya cquired in the early 1950s, Camp Kiniya’s “Moscow” property (named for the valley road leading to the property) is nestled in Mansfield State Forest. In the 1960s girls hauled all materials by hand to build a traditional salt-box cabin, complete with bunks. During this time remembers driving girls up to the trailhead in a VW bus with provisions for several days. They enjoyed time exploring and practicing outdoor skills in the beautiful surroundings.

While this property has been used lightly in the last few years for base-camping to ascend to The Long Trail and “The Forehead” of Mt. Mansfield, it will become a hub of activity for our Junior campers this coming summer as they begin a new tradition of cabin overnights! The old cabin (fondly referred to now as “the old creepy cabin”) has been removed by our year-round team, and will be replaced with tent platforms. Led by their wonderful leaders, our Junior campers can look forward to a beautiful and peaceful introduction to camping in the Green Mountains.

By #14962 Josh Olcott he Dudley Cheer . . . We all know it by heart, and the smile that naturally comes to our face when we think of it makes for a good day.

When I accepted the position as Food Service Director just over a year ago, I started to recall all the wonderful times I had back in the late ’80s and early ’90s while I was a camper, and wondered if anything would be different now. Although there were a few minor tweaks to the system (all positive of course), I was shocked that so much was exactly the same. Programs, cabins, Chapel, meal time, rest period, Hymn Sing, and the Wednesday Night Show . . . so much the same. Naturally I was ecstatic about this, but what really hit me was hearing the Camp Cheer at the first Hymn Sing. When I thought back, I had forgotten how loud we screamed the Dudley Cheer. The amount of energy and emotion that is put into belting out those few words, the smiles on the kids faces as they yelled at the top of their lungs. It was an amazing feeling for someone who hadn’t heard it that way since ’92. At that moment, I knew that I had to bring that cheer into the kitchen and prepare a “Cheer Meal” at some point during the summer. originally was going to be one large pie per cabin, our supplier decided to sub us with individual shells . . . 650 individual pot pies were made in nine hours! I have made bug juice for the campers earlier in the year, and my brother, #17113 Jared, told me that back in the day the sweet drink was called Pink Music. 42 gallons!! Easiest to execute, baked a simple sugar cookie and glazed it with a white icing, 690 in total! We had to get a bit creative, as I was told the long nosed fish used to call the Lake “home” but was not available east of Michigan at the time of service . . . So, we went with the next best thing – Fried Pickles!! 137 lbs. in all! After hearing that first cheer in the beginning of the summer, I expected one during chow time. When I stepped out of the kitchen to see if everyone was enjoying the food, the cheer erupted and could have been heard in downtown Westport! I’ll remember that moment for a very long time.

ate last fall Davo decided to transition from his full-time role in leadership development and alumni relations to a part-time role. Fortunately for Dudley, he’ll continue to work with Dave Langston and Matt during the off-season on alumni relations on a part time basis, and full-time during the summer as the Director of the Arts program. After 15 years of fulltime Dudley employment, working 40 weekends a year, Davo is looking forward to a well-deserved break in the action. He continues to live in nearby Port Henry, NY, coach the girls basketball team in Schroon Lake, NY, and manage several properties locally. This transition also allows him to get to New York City regularly to spend more time with his wife, Kathy, and daughter, Bridget. At Camp, Davo has been working closely with Evan George, who will be taking over the reigns of the Leadership Development program.

he votes are in and the 2015 Father/Son Weekend was voted the “best ever!” With the AMAZING Dad v. Sons hockey game on the brand new Cub Beach Hockey Arena, the spectacular snowshoe trek into the Stacey Brook Wilderness Area, and the time to unplug, what could be better? Here’s what some of the participants had to say:

Longtime Dudley Staff Guy #11264 Mark “Davo” Davenport and Director Matt Storey

The dinner table with everyone was the best!

“We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was great to have time set aside to spend with my son and to meet the other dads and sons.” “Another positive to the weekend was being able to detach and just live in the moment. I forgot a wall charger for my phone which ensured that I could not check emails.” “Thank you all so much for a wonderful and memorable weekend. Such an amazing experience on all fronts for my boys and me. It’s beyond words to express how magical you all made our weekend together.”

espite an unseasonably warm start: (temps in the low 50°s, rain, etc); the Winter Leadership trip, led by Dudley’s own seasoned and competent hike hut leaders, and #19304 Tom Dils, was a great success. It is a testament to the inherent leadership dispositions of the participants involved that they were easily able to make lemonade from the lemon-like warm weather and lack of snow on campus. Thankfully, the High Peaks region’s thick winter coat of snow had yet to shed its layer. This made for some excellent cross-country skiing on the first day of the trip at the renowned 1980 Olympic venue – Mount Van Hovenburg. There the participants were provided with a cross-country ski lesson from Camp Dudley’s new Outdoor Program Director Afterwards they worked on refining their new-found crosscountry skiing skills exploring the venue’s many trails. The following day the group took a visit to the home of and bushwhacked up Coon Mt. while practicing outdoor leadership skills. Camp

Dudley Director joined the group to facilitate discussion on leadership styles, characteristics, and development. Winter-like weather returned for the backcountry segment of the trip. The crew hiked through John’s Brook Valley where they base camped at the Peggy O’Brian Cabin. From there, they made a winter ascent of Big Slide Mountain. For all involved this was perhaps the capstone of the adventure as they were able to utilize and refine many of the skills they had been taught on the previous days. It also helped that it was a perfect winter Adirondack day. The view from the top was sublime and offered a commanding perspective of the Great Range. This is the fifth year that Dudley has hosted the Winter Leadership trip. It is evident that this experience continues to strengthen our potential leaders’ outdoor skills, decision making ability, risk management, and outdoor professionalism. We are already looking forward to next winter!

Kiniya and Dudley JLs took advantage of the new Middlebury Outdoor Pavilion during their March JL Leadership Training weekends.

The Camp DuDley News

The rank of Junior Leader at Dudley and Kiniya is pretty special because it’s the first year that our young men and women are actual “employees.” It’s also a big step for our Leadership Development Program as the participants begin to truly understand what an important role they play in the success of our two camps. For this reason, we set aside weekends in early-mid March (one for Kiniya and one for Dudley) to get our new crop of JLs on campus for a fun-packed weekend of leadership development and training. Conversations focus on understanding leadership styles, basic principles of child development, and some good old-fashioned fellowship and fun. A guaranteed outcome is that these Junior Leadership teams begin to develop for the summer while strong bonds of friendship are built among these young people.


#10643 Matt Quigley Dear Dudleyite: At our January Board of Trustees Meeting in NYC, we paused and looked back 50 years, focusing on 1965 – a summer and year of great change for our nation. We spoke of the importance of being prepared for the unexpected, being open to change and to different perspectives. This “historical moment” (see page 28) was instructive. It also reminded us of the wonderful work of the Directors, Staff, Leaders and Alumni who came before us. Change is ever-present in our lives. Change occurs at times through our actions or those of others, or due to factors beyond our control. Change can be both exhilarating and frightening – although with time, change can seem less pronounced, more manageable and even less significant.

Matt Quigley

Dudley is for most of us a source of constancy – a rock amidst shifting attitudes and values. Yet our Camps also experience regular change. On the physical side, witness the magnificent new Middlebury Pavilion on the Main Dudley Campus or the spectacular new Climbing Wall at Kiniya. On the people side, we recognize decision to transition from full-time to summer employment after decades of legendary service to our Camps. There is also change on the policy side, as this year will mark our Camps’ first year without affiliation with the Y. Each of these and other changes are important, but they take place on the bedrock of our Camps’ immutable motto and mission. The physical changes are noticed by returning alumni or parents – as investments in our Camps, our programs and our campers. They are made possible only through the remarkable generosity of the Dudley Family that loyally support our ever-growing scholarship needs and the overall stewardship of Dudley and Kiniya. At the same time, we repeatedly hear the refrain from those returning after a long absence: “Wow, it really hasn’t changed!” It doesn’t take long to see and feel that the core – the essence of our Camps – hasn’t changed. We feel “re-grounded” when we return. For returning campers, leaders and staff, the upcoming summer is another opportunity to have fun and soak in the “Dudley Magic,” experiencing anew what makes our Camps so unique. For the rest of us, life moves on and we live vicariously through them or through reunions, large or small. Each year is a different chapter in our own lives, one in which “Camp” can occupy a prominent place. As a camper might say this summer while mid mountains and lakes: “Here I am, up at Camp again, There I am, up on the stage, Here I go, playing games again, There I go, turn the page.” May this next chapter be bountiful and joyful for you and your families. As we turn the page and look toward another “best-ever” summer, please know that it is through your commitment to Dudley and Kiniya that these life-changing experiences are possible. As they were 50 years ago, they will be today and for many, many summers to come. In the Spirit of Dudley and Kiniya,

he Camp Dudley Board is pleased to announce that we have successfully formed the not-for-profit Camp Dudley Foundation (CDF or Foundation) which will hold and oversee the endowment and long-term financial assets of Camp Dudley and Camp Kiniya. Establishing a separate entity allows us to protect, preserve and focus on the long-term growth of the Camps’ financial assets, as separate from the operating assets of each camp. The Foundation has its own separate Board of Directors which will provide oversight of our Camps’ endowment and other funding sources for the long-term capital needs of the Camps. The main operating Board, the Camp Dudley Board of Trustees, will continue to set the budget for the capital needs of the Camps, toward which the Foundation Board will direct funds, such that future Dudley generations can thrive. New gifts to the Foundation will continue to be tax deductible to the same extent as allowed by law. Members of the Camp Dudley Foundation Board of Directors, elected by the Camp

Dudley Board of Trustees, serving staggered terms, include: and Additionally, the elected officers of the Camp Dudley Board of Trustees serve on the Foundation Board. These currently include: Chair; , Secretary; and #22443 Karen Ramsey, Treasurer. The CDF will meet twice annually. We are delighted to have taken this important step, helping to assure the financial viability of our Camps for years to come. Should you have questions about the CDF, or making gifts toward the endowment, please contact Dave Langston (dave@campdudley.org) or Fred Guffey (fred@campdudley.org).

ach year our amazing camp community generates the donations needed to sustain the Annual Fund. Our Annual Fund supports the William J. Schmidt Scholarship Fund, leadership development and facility needs not covered by tuition. 238 boys and girls benefited from your generous gifts to the Scholarship Fund last summer. During the 2013 - 2014 fiscal year (October 1, 2013 September 30, 2014) we were challenged to raise $800,000 for the Annual Fund and increase the number of individual givers to more than 1,885. (Do you remember the 1885 Donor Challenge?) We are pleased to report success on both fronts!

You helped make this summer the “best-ever!”

2,014 donors supported the Annual Fund with $826,729! THANK YOU! What an accomplishment for our community. Your contributions made such a difference to the boys and girls of our camps. In the following pages we are pleased to highlight the broad range of parents, campers, trustees, leaders, staff members and friends who made gifts to Camp. Our new “online giving ‘ganza” during June 2014 was an exciting development event that boosted the Annual Fund. We received 163 gifts and $31,695 in just 30 hours! Our goals were 130 donors and $30,000. Another grand show of support! Camp Dudley, Inc. continues to be a qualified charitable organization, 501(c)(3), so our donors are able to give generously and enjoy the benefits of tax deductions to the extent allowed by law. Thank you!

Thanks for a great summer!

One Light* One Light Shines out across the sky. One Star with many roads thereby. A Beacon to draw you on; A Blessing that fills you from The Child that you carry as you go. One Lord to carry in your heart. A promise you have before you start. To bless you, to keep you, To never leave you weeping in the dark and threatening seas; To bless you, to keep you, Across the trouble waters of your gold and silver sea. *Lyrics by #11444 Henry Timm Music by #9373 Pete Edwards
