Matt #13804

Dear Dudleyites,

In January, we had the privilege of working with the Brunswick School to develop a weeklong Winter Leadership course for several high school juniors. Fourteen young men came to Dudley to learn from each other and more about themselves. The trip included time on campus, skill development at the Stacy Brook yurts, and winter mountaineering in the Adirondack Park. The trip was a tremendous success, and the skills the boys learned were impactful. However, one of the most important things this crew took away with them was the knowledge that they could actually live without their phones for an entire week. One of the benefits of our time at Camp Dudley each summer is the opportunity to become “unplugged.” Most of us are programmed on a daily basis to try and stay connected to friends online. A recent 2015 study by the Pew Research Center suggests that 95% of all teens spend time online daily, with 25% in a category of online “almost constantly.” This constant connectedness is a new phenomenon; it is still uncertain what the long-term effects will be. However, at Camp, we celebrate a different kind of connectedness and because of it, lifelong friendships are made. Here at Camp, boys are greeted on day one by others from all around the world. Within the first hours of their stay with us, they are sitting at a table, sharing a meal and, quite often, cabin laughter. On day two and three, they visit the challenge course for a team building experience with new friends. They are


given the chance to personally connect with others in the cabin, on teams, and on hikes. Budding friendships at Camp are genuine and authentic—built on the shared experiences of being away from home—the kind characterized by eye contact and friendly highfives. These relationships are at the very core of each camper’s experience; in truth, they are the heart and soul of Dudley. When parents discover that there is no technology at Camp, they are often relieved, but sometimes respond with hesitation: “Oh, my son will not like that,” or, “I’m not sure he will be able to make it without his phone.” In reality, campers are at ease without their devices within hours of being here, and oftentimes, even relieved. This comfort and confidence carries over into the strong relationships we witness; how wonderful to be given a chance to forget for a time about the outside world. Our experience with the boys at the Brunswick School reminded me of just how significant a time of being “unplugged” can really be for developing young bodies and minds, even if only for a week. We are proud of the work we do each summer in helping young boys become better connected to themselves and those around them. The skills they are able to develop, away from the “noise” and necessity of their devices at home, can give them the confidence and courage they need to carry back home.

Marnie #20001

Dear Friends,

Each year, I am grateful for a professional development opportunity through the American Camping Association’s National Conference. As part of this larger camp community, we learn how other camps operate. This, in turn, helps us see things a bit differently while changing our perspective in subtle ways. No matter how different our camps, our missions, and our philosophies, there is always something to learn from other organizations that stirs our creativity and brings new insights to leading our Camps. For me, that is very exciting! This year, the conference was held in Atlanta, GA, where I also had the honor of touring the recently opened National Center for Civil and Human Rights with #11320 Steve Lutz. The Center’s tagline, “Inspiration Lives Here,” comes to life through an interactive, immersive experience presenting civil and human rights issues in different contexts: current vs. historical, domestic vs. international, local vs. worldwide. The Center brilliantly marries events of the past with current struggles around the world and convinces you that you can make a difference! As Steve and I walked from room to room, we paused on inspirational quotes emblazoned on the walls. We both immediately felt the connection to the Dudley and Kiniya experience. In particular, I was drawn to this:

group – to take possessive investment in each others’ struggles where whatever is happening to them is happening to us.” Isn’t this the premise of “The Other Fellow First”? As outlined in Camp’s 2020 Vision Strategic Plan, the greatest responsibility we have as a community is to preserve, maintain, and enhance our beloved Camps. In doing so, we recognize that we come together each summer from widely varied backgrounds and with different stories to share. The only true way to create a fully open and supportive community is to commit ourselves to values of equality and respect all the time, every day. A community that cares deeply about the safety and happiness of every person is by definition a wonderful place for our campers to grow and thrive! Kiniya has much to be thankful for – a breathtakingly beautiful campus, a dedicated leadership team and staff, loyal campers, parents, grandparents and friends and an extremely capable Board. As a team, we work together to foster an inclusive and welcoming community for all. We are so grateful to all of those who have so generously contributed to our past and invite you to visit this summer because INSPIRATION LIVES HERE!

“As much love as I have for my own group, I have for every other Spring 2016


Letters to the Editor

Sunset at Junior Beach, Camp Kiniya #7486 Rocket McElroy, Ottawa Hills, Ohio, wrote, “In the most recent issue of the CD News you asked about nicknames. When my older brother, Paul, went to Dudley (first year 1942) he was nicknamed ‘Rocky’. Because of his Scottish heritage it seemed that ‘Sandy’ would be appropriate, but there was already a ‘Sandy’. So he became ‘Rocky’. When I got to camp in 1947, there was thought given to ‘Little Rocky’ and ‘Rockette’. Happily those did not survive and ‘Rocket’ became my moniker. Jim Shaw was in my cabin - Renssalaer - played with a Y0-Yo all the time. So he was ‘Yo-Yo’. Tom Osgood was the JL with a shock of hair that draped over his left eye so he looked like Veronica Lake. ‘Veronica’ was his nickname. Charlie Ormsby walked around the cabin flexing his 10-yearold muscles and was nicknamed ‘Atlas’. Tommy Walton was nicknamed ‘Isaac’ in honor of the legendary fisherman. Hugh Romney was ‘Nubby’. Bill Wolverton, from Florida, was in Cutler. He was ‘Uncle Remus’ and later just ‘Remus’. Richard Ralph (note the RR initials) got dubbed ‘Railroad’. ‘Lefty’ Bisselle’s brother was a righthander, so, obviously, he became ‘Righty’ Bisselle. On and on it went!” #8437 Lennox “Dice” Stuart, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, wrote to Matt, “I noted a photo of Willie Schmidt and two campers in the Fall CD News. Upon a closer look I saw that the camper on Willie’s right is my son, #13037 Courtney Stuart. Here’s a list of our Stuart CD campers; Lennox Stuart, ‘Bud’ — #3068: My Father - deceased Lennox Stuart, ‘Dice’ — #8437: Author of this email Lennox Stuart , ‘Lennox’ — #12667: My son

Thanks for your hard work on behalf of Camp Dudley.” #17001 Ron MacLean, Trumansburg, NY, wrote to Matt, “I always enjoy reading the Camp Dudley News as it triggers pleasant memories. The letter from Ken Hoyt #23659 was the highlight of the issue for me. Ken’s letter reflected on his experiences as part of the Kitchen Crew in 1955, his visit to camp in 2009 and how he received a camp number several years later. The accompanying photograph showing the 1955 commissary staff was familiar to me as that was my first summer in the kitchen and I have the same photo, but I was cropped out of this one for space I presume. I can appreciate Ken’s feelings with this link to the Camp

The Camp Dudley News

in the thirties (?), some of what had been back nine holes were incorporated with front nine holes to keep everything on the clubhouse side of the back road. My understanding is that originally one crossed the road after the fifth hole and played the rest of the front nine over there before coming back to finish on the current 18th hole.”

Dudley family because I, too, received my #17001 from Wheaton Griffin several years after my time at camp. The special Dudley memories and values mean more as the years go by — even after 60 years.” Ed.Note: Sorry you were cropped out Ron! Here it is again with you in it! #6581 Berk Johnson, Mashpee, MA, wrote regarding the Westport Golf Course article: “Sometime early in the century, the course was expanded to 18 holes and was a beautiful and well maintained course. It was shrunk to 9 holes around WW II because of cost and lack of play. At some point the Inn people sold some of the ‘back nine’ to a neighbor and this included two of the original holes. Accordingly, when they reopened the back nine, they had to carve out two new holes . . . #10 which is horrible and #17 which runs through what was their dump at one time. Shots on 17 used to turn up bottle caps and other excitement until recently. While it was called the ‘“Back Nine,’ I was told that that was not quite accurate. When shrinking to nine holes

#23830 Christopher Johnson, wrote from Crown Point, NY. Chris was a Plebe in 2015 and hopes to return to Camp as a Junior in 2016. “Dear Editor, In the last issue of the CDA News there was a wonderful chapel talk called ‘A Life Remembered’ by Ed Schmidt. It was a great story, the story of Willie Schmidt’s life. This issue was so good that I chose to share it with my whole family, my parents and my grandparents. If you haven’t read it, read it (after you finish this of course). So I won’t spoil it. When I read those three long pages, I only loved it more. I had read it before but I wasn’t really giving it my full attention. It is a story you have to read with all your attention. Chapel Talks and Sermons are some of the best ways to show the messages that Camp wants to teach you. Also, sometimes I think that my grandparents wish I was more involved in Boy Scouts as I was in Dudley. So my parents and I like to show them what kind of stuff we are exposed to at Camp Dudley. Read it to others, share it, spread it. Many parents think that their kids can’t go to Camp Dudley because it’s expensive or they don’t think their kids are athletic enough and all that. Parents need to see this story who are still in doubt about sending kids to Dudley.”

Small World #7486 Rocket McElroy, Ottawa Hills, OH, wrote, “Last Saturday I had coffee with a young man, Matt Barchick, whom I had coached (rowing) at St. John’s Jesuit High School in Toledo. He had just been commissioned Second Lieutenant in the USMC and was home on leave prior to starting Basic training. I was telling him about some meaningful experiences I had had in my life and mentioned a camp I attended. ‘Oh, what was the name of the camp?’ Well, there is only one CAMP, I thought, but told Matt Camp Dudley. He flashed a big smile and said, ‘One of my platoon mates went to Dudley.’ Next time you chat with him, ask him his camp number. ‘I’ll send him a text right now.’ (Isn’t 21st century technology, terrific?) Here is what he sent: ‘I’m with a fellow Dudley man. What is your camp number?’ The response: ‘18754’ — his name was Connor Smith. Matt sent him, ‘7486’ (my camp number). ‘First time at Camp was 1947.’ ‘Holy cow! What’s his name?’ ‘Rocket McElroy.’”

replied, “Of course it is!” With that exchange another lost sheep was recovered. John gave Bill his business card and we now have one of our own back in the fold. Glad to have you back, John.

It was a real treat to meet Will Van Praagh, #23504. He was a Plebe last summer. (I was a #11527 Joe (Maruca) Cook, left Plebe in – gulp – 1974!).” and #23504 Will Van Praagh have Ed.

I’m participating in the less raucous versions of some of my favorite hymns, when none other than #15509 Scott Steen (my senior leader of 2005) pops up three rows ahead of me. I hadn’t seen Steener since his Hike Hut contributions in 2012, and after a discussion on the finer points of ‘The First Noel’ key jangling, we decided to meet up for a few runs on Rendezvous Mountain.

“Being the experienced local that he is, Scott introduced me to some of his favorite spots, and showed me what altitude can do to a pair of lowland lungs like mine. At the end of the day, I walked away with a snapped pole and the attached picture. Seeing as I wrote my 2014 Chapel Talk on the small world of Dudley and a previous run-in with Scott Steen, I thought it appropriate to send this in.” #9137 Ken White ,Westport, NY, wrote, “While awaiting the start of the UVM vs New Hampshire basketball playoff game at the Patrick gym with grandson Griffin, I noticed a security guard standing on the opposite side of the court. As I looked at him for a few seconds, he looked familiar to me but could not be sure. I approached one of the guards on my side of the court, inquiring if the guard in question might be the person I was hoping him to be. Word was sent across the court and sure enough, it was #12467 Isiah (Ike) Harris, Dudley leader in the ’80s.  We chatted for a minute or two as I learned of his three daughters, one of whom attended Kiniya. Upon introducing him to Griffin and exchanging camp numbers, it turns out the three of us have numbers ending with the digit 7.  Ike says hello to all his Dudley friends and hopes to attend the reunion this August.”

#16627 Justin Bolger, Washington, DC, writes, “I had a fortuitous dinner with the Ecclesines at my house in DC where I’m a Dominican House of Studies religious brother studying to be a priest. We had an event where several Supreme Court justices spoke followed by dinner. I ended up sitting with Kevin and Joanne Ecclesine and halfway through dinner we realized the Dudley connection. My cousin Alex is good friends with the Ecclesine boys. The Ecclesines also noted some friends of theirs named ‘Judd and Maggie.’ Also funny, since my old band with Maggie went by the same name. I gave them a Yoha! and my Camp number to verify Dudley status.”

New Board Members At the November Meeting of the Board of Trustees, three new members were welcomed, along with new Officers for the Camp Dudley Association. #12335 Bill Bullock, Sheffield, MA

Bill remembers arriving at Camp in 1977. “I had no idea what lay in store for my three idyllic summers. I now realize it changed my life.” Bill and his wife, Bebe, are happy that their three children have now had their own Dudley/Kiniya experiences. Bill graduated from Colby College in 1989, joining the Bank of New England, Fleet Bank and Merrill Lynch. He then followed his passion for the outdoors and fly fishing with the Orvis Company, and as Executive Director of the American Museum of Fly Fishing, both in Manchester, VT. In 2007, Bill and Bebe joined the faculty at Berkshire School in Sheffield, MA, where he currently teaches U.S. History and Economics and Philanthropy, while assisting in Advancement. During his nine years at Berkshire, he has worn many hats, serving as Director of Advancement, Academic Dean and Associate Director of Admissions. He also coaches soccer, squash and golf, and oversees the fly fishing club. “I’m excited to serve our Camps in this new role and look forward to contributing my own skills and experience to help our Camps continue as leaders in changing the lives of children from all over the world,” said

#19629 D’Anne Hurd, Bourne, MA

D’Anne’s Dudley roots run deep . . . her grandmother, Edith Start Hurd, donated Hurd Cabin more than 75 years ago, recognizing Camp’s positive impact on her sons, #3829 Kenneth (D’Anne’s father), #3943 Russell, #3944 Robert, and #4535 Gilbert. Many Hurd family members have attended Dudley, including sons #17629 Eric and #18629 Doug Forsythe, both campers, leaders and, in Doug’s case, D-Head, between 1999-2014. D’Anne’s service to Dudley began in 2003 when she joined the Dudley Girls’ Sub-Committee charged with establishing a camp for young women. She served on the Board (2006-10) championing Kiniya’s acquisition while serving on and chairing numerous committees. D’Anne’s business career combines law and finance (JD/MBA) at large (PepsiCo, Inc.) to small companies (Boston tech start-ups). She has served on public and private company boards since 1993. D’Anne currently works as an independent Board Governance Consultant with the National Association of Corporate Directors, sharing leading boardroom practices. She is also an independent trustee of the Pax World Funds and the Pax Ellevate Global Women’s Index Fund, the first broadly diversified mutual fund to invest in companies demonstrably advancing women’s leadership. D’Anne, who is married to George Forsythe, says, “I am thrilled to be planning for Dudley’s future and supporting Marnie and Matt as they instill values and teach leadership to the young men and women in the Dudley family.”

CDA Names Officers #24278 Karen Johnson, Lewes, DE

#14992 C. David Ready, Richmond, VA

Karen’s 20+-year career with The Rouse Company in retail real estate marketing has provided experience in advertising, media strategies, event planning, budgeting, customer service, risk management and tenant relations. Karen is now a Senior Account Director/Brand Strategist with COHN Marketing, working with retail real estate companies to define their brand and propel it forward. As an International Council of Shopping Centers member, Karen mentors the next generation of marketers in advertising/media courses through the John T. Riordan School for Retail Real Estate Professionals.

David graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy and the University of Virginia, and has applied his communications experience in service of educational communities. He was Director of Communications for the Packer Collegiate Institute, Brooklyn, NY, for 10 years. He returned to Richmond in 2014 to oversee marketing and communications for Trinity Episcopal School. Before entering school administration, he spent three years teaching and coaching at Brewster Academy, Wolfeboro, NH.

While dating #12078 Drew Johnson in the 1990s, Karen made her first trip to Dudley. “I remember stepping off the train and knowing that Dudley would hold a special place in my heart.” Karen and Drew returned every August to visit, then as a family when sons, #22078 Sam and #23078 Luke were born. In a 2001 stop at the Schoolhouse before their 9-hour drive home Karen recalls, “I announced to Drew and then-toddler Sam, in this perfect spot, that a new camper (Luke) would be arriving the following spring.”

David succeeds Marcus Chioffi as President of the CDA. Hailing from Richmond, VA, David was hypnotized by then Director Willie Schmidt’s slideshow and arrived as a Junior in 1989. Over the next 15 years, missing only one summer, he rose through the ranks to become Senior D-Head in 1997-98. As editor of both the Dudley Doings and Last Whistle in the early 2000s, David helped implement the Arts Majors program. “When I look back I am particularly proud that hundreds of campers had the opportunity to see their own writing in print,” he says.

Karen also brings practical experience as a Dudley wife, parent, sister-in-law, daughter-in-law and aunt. Said Karen, “I am grateful for the opportunity to serve on the Camp Dudley Board and helping wherever I can.” Her happiest Dudley memory? . . . whenever James Mayo includes “This is My Father’s World” in the Parents’Weekend Hymn Sing.

His wife Emmy, son Thomas (3), and infant son Curtis were all in attendance at the 2015 CDA Reunion in Westport. “Outside of my immediate family, Camp Dudley has been the single most important influence in my life — personally, professionally, spiritually,” says David. “I could not be more honored to serve my fellow Dudley alumni in this role.”

New Board Members #14571 Peter Groves, Bronxville, NY

Pete started at Camp as a Cub in 1988, when he tentatively signed up for a half season. Five days in, he called his Dad and said he wasn’t coming home. Pete was a full-season camper as a Cub, Plebe, and Junior, and came back for two more summers as a JL and AL. Pete’s camping days stretched from 1988 to 1994. Pete attended Exeter, Yale, and Columbia Business School. He was a Partner at McKinsey & Company and recently joined the hedge fund Bridgewater Associates as the Head of Research. Pete and his wife, Sameena, now live in Bronxville, NY, with their two young children, Wyatt and Zadie. Pete sings “The Dudley Hymn” and either “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” “Climb Every Mountain,” or “Amazing Grace” to each of them every night, a tradition he’s maintained since their

arrival. Pete also leads the family through regular rounds of “Put Your Hand in the Hand” and “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” As ever, Pete sings badly, but with conviction. “I’m excited to lead the next era of Peter, Sameena, alumni connecWyatt, and Zadie Groves tivity and community efforts, and to get to know the Kiniya family,” said Pete.

Thanks to the outgoing Board members!

Lost Sheep 2016

By#15932 Charlie Zabriskie

We’re thrilled to report that our LOST SHEEP project actually works — really well! Thanks to you, Dudleyites on our Lost Sheep lists are being tracked down around the world and reunited with Camp at an impressive clip. Let’s keep at it! We recently reconnected with #12026 Ken Keuffel Jr., a Lost Sheep since the ’80s. Welcome back, Ken! Regrettably never a camper, Ken (aka “Ya Gotta Be Euffel Keuffel”) was recruited to Camp in 1976 as a JL, encouraged to get involved by #10801 Dave Donahue, who had played football for the legendary Ken Sr. at Lawrenceville School and who thought Ken Jr. would be good for Camp and Camp good for him.

Dudleyite #11463 Tom Bolster showed up out of the blue at Ken’s dad’s funeral. Dudley shows up out of the blue in all sorts of places. When we run into fellow Dudleyites out in the world, we should take full advantage of those instances by celebrating the moment AND making sure Camp knows where they are. Camp has given us so much. Next time you come across a Dudleyite, encourage them to get back in touch with Camp and share their memories like Ken has. Our respective stories are what perpetuate the Dudley magic.

Ken grew up in Lawrenceville, New Jersey and eventually ended up in Winston-Salem, NC, where he lives today with his family (including Kenneth III). Ken reports that he attends a Methodist church where he often finds himself reminiscing about Witherbee hymn sings. Music was a pillar of Ken’s time at Dudley. Bob Kindred recruited him into the Rhythm Ramblers early on, and then persuaded him to pull double duty as a babysitter for Bob’s kids. Although Bob never paid him in dollars, he fed him hoagies and played Charlie Parker jazz albums. Labor laws aside, it was a satisfying form of comp. Many years later, Bob repaid the favor by headlining at Ken’s wedding in Tucson, where he split stage time with a Mariachi band. Ken lost touch with Camp for many years, but he was reminded of the Dudley spirit in 2006 when fellow

Chapel Talk at Dudley This chapel talk was presented to leaders and staff in the preseason of 2015 by parent and year-round staffer, #22830 Anita Johnson. Anita’s message beautifully captures the thoughts of so many parents as they prepare to send their children to Camp for the summer.


ood Morning. I want to start off by saying that Chapel Talks are my favorite part of the Dudley Day, and so I sought out some advice from my 12-year old son. He gave me two pieces of advice: “1. Don’t make it too long, or they will stop listening, 2. Don’t get all sappy up there, it’s a boys camp.” I will try to make it short, but I can’t promise to not be sappy, as the subject matter is my whole heart.

Beckman. Hanging out at the Hike Hut was out of the question, and at one point, his buddy needed to come to my bank window to check his balance, and Christopher hid off to the side. I would have had no idea he was there except that his buddy said, “Is Christopher Johnson your kid? He is my buddy and he is right here.” I am sure Christopher wished I was somewhere far away too!

My name is Anita and I am fortunate to be a part of the year-round team, but more than that, I am fortunate to be a mom of one of your campers in the Plebe division. I have a unique perspective as a parent. I don’t get to be hours away, thinking about and wondering how he is doing, trust me, there were many times last summer when I thought it might have been easier to be in Darien, watching the mailbox for my weekly letter. Although Christopher and I had very little contact last summer (I think he said five words to me, “Mom get away from me!”), I was very much tracking his daily process. I was never more familiar with the daily schedule, I searched the camper mail, looking for my name on an envelope, and as kids lined up for the store, I stared like a crazy person, hoping to catch a glimpse of my child. I was definitely “KID SICK.”

Although I was able to track camper #23830’s movements like a CIA Operative, I was not able to witness the moments of triumph on the fields, the deep understanding of the vespers the night before, the moments of uncertainty as he tried something new, and the pure joy on his face as he danced to the Wednesday night show music. But my unique perspective as a Dudley parent who also works here became favorable at times, as I would get small bits of feedback from some of you. There was the time that Big Joe told me of Christopher’s first Skin Diving Lesson, and how he was terrified to trust the mask and snorkle, but he powered through it and was swimming around in no time, or the time when Aaleiyah was doing a vesper to Monkey’s best-dressed Cubs, in their pj bottoms and dress shirts and blazers, and someone farted, and Christopher said in a small voice “excuse me.” I walked into the office one morning and both Matt and Evan couldn’t wait to tell me the story of Christopher throwing his whole division under the bus that was about to take them for Cubby ice cream,

He, however, was not homesick in the least! In fact he avoided the office to the highest degree. Trips to Brody meant making his buddy walk around the back of

because he not only admitted to the cheating scandal, but implicated everyone else too! And a few of the DA’s shared stories about Christopher on the fields and how my very un-athletic child (my description not theirs) had a hit in baseball, and although he was thrown out at first, his whole team cheered as if he had hit a grand slam! And how there was a game of Ultimate, where the only game plan was that Christopher Johnson was going to score, even if it meant throwing to him every time until he succeeded, and by the way, it worked, well I think they lost the game, but Christopher scored!


Even though I tried my hardest to be a “helicopter” parent in disguise, I missed my child so much it sometimes hurt. But the benefits he gained by spending the bulk of his summer away from us were immeasurable. The entire Leadership team worked hard to ensure that he and the other 700 kids that came here had a transformative summer. Camp Dudley and its 131 years of history have provided the foundations and structure for an amazing experience, but it is all of you who will bring the Dudley Spirit to your campers. As I, and all of the other parents, prepare to entrust you with our children, please be mindful of the treasures you are about to receive. They mean everything to us and even if it is just for 3 and ½ weeks, they need to mean everything to you too! Please bow your heads — Lord, please allow me to let him go for 3 ½ weeks, and give these men the tools they need to pick him up.

A happy camper . . . Christopher Johnson Spring 2016


Camp Pillar: Athletics

Athletics at Dudley and Kiniya by #20595 Kat Nelson and #16404 Blair Dils


ne look at the plaques that hang in Beckman Hall and it is obvious that Athletics and team competition has long been an integral component of a boy’s daily life at Camp Dudley. Within the first few hours of their summer session, boys play soccer, basketball, football or run through a “combine” at the Bach track to get them ready for team play. Across the lake at Kiniya, there has been a gradual shift from only individual sports offerings to now a robust team competition component to the athletic program. Increasingly, the athletics programs for boys and girls are looking more and more similar. Athletics Heads Blair Dils and Kat Nelson sat down to discuss the recent history of their programs, the strengths and some of the challenges of meeting Campers’ needs. Both are familiar with how the other half live—Kat was head of the tennis program at Dudley in 2007 before she took her talents to Colchester; Blair has served as a guest soccer instructor at Kiniya on several occasions. Here’s that conversation;

Lacrosse is a favorite sport at Kiniya!


BLAIR: How would you characterize changes in the Kiniya athletic program as you begin your ninth year there? KAT: In the beginning there were no team sports, there were no competitions. When I came over from Dudley we started by introducing basketball and softball and then later we added lacrosse. We had friendly competition, but we weren’t really keeping really score or keeping track of how many wins and losses. Now our spirit of competition is at an all-time high. We introduced a whiteboard outside the dining hall that keeps track of points. Everyone knows the standings and the culminating championship games. Because there are only four teams in each division, everyone has a shot to win a championship. The boys’ model has been a good model for us. How have things changed for you at Dudley? BLAIR: On the boys’ side, not surprisingly, our model has changed less in the twenty plus years I have been there. We’re still guided by our team majors and our individual majors, but the changes we’ve seen are more of an effort to try to cater to the changing interests of the campers. Some of our older alumni might not like to hear this, but baseball is on the decline so we’re playing fewer baseball games at Junior and Senior levels. But, we’re playing more flag football than ever. Senior football has become the marquee sport these days perhaps the way baseball was back in the ’50s and ’60s. We definitely still want to introduce campers to many sports and challenge them in that way, but we also want to cater to our campers and make sure that we’re staying current with their interests.

The Camp Dudley News

BLAIR: What are some of the other challenges you face as an athletic department at Kiniya? KAT: Initially, we were challenged with putting girls on teams with others their same age. We only had two divisions for sports, so we had nine-year-olds playing with eleven-year-olds who could be at very different stages of athletic performance and development. We really looked into how we could make that more even, and now we have three divisions for sports. One of the other challenges we have is making sure that we’ve provided campers with enough background in some of the sports to really make them competitive. We want to make sure we are following the rules that are required of the sport and holding them to the same standards that they would be held to if they were playing for a school or team back home. BLAIR: We’re definitely dealing with the same kinds of issues, but increasingly on our side of the lake it’s dealing with campers who come and want to get really good at their sport, whatever that sport is, and trying to balance that with campers who want to try a sport for the first time. Trying to blend in those two types of athletes with those individual needs is a challenge. I don’t think that challenge is ever going to go away, but it’s nice that we’re able to offer the skill development that you talk about. Evan George has done a nice job at Dudley of getting the coaches to develop a curriculum for each sport for the instruction of the basic skills a camper needs to have to participate in that sport.

Ready for a little friendly Flag Football competition.

a team game even if they don’t know a sport. In the last five years or so there’s been a renewed emphasis on making sure the campers get quality coaching all day long. But that kind of coaching of coaches couldn’t happen if we didn’t have a veteran A-Hut staff. So if a leader doesn’t know as much about coaching basketball, let’s say, they know they can go to a veteran A-Hut staff member and get some help. Our leaders are very receptive to seek advice from the veteran coaches that we have at Camp. How about for you? KAT: It’s similar to the way the Hike Hut asks Leaders to be ready to lead a hike when they get hired. Our Leaders have to be ready to coach a game. They may not know how to play lacrosse, but we’re going to give them the tools—just like we give the campers the tools—and they’re going to learn how to be a coach who is inspirational and one who can provide simple plays and strategies to carry out on the field.

KAT: We tend to think of Athletics from the perspective of the Camp’s relationship with the camper, but how does the Athletics program impact the leadership ranks? BLAIR: Lately, on our side of the lake, we’ve put a lot of emphasis on coaching in the pre-season, whether that’s giving Leaders talks about coaching or giving them specific skills about how to run a warm-up for Spring 2016

Willie’s Week During the week of July 22, 2015 we celebrated what would have been Willie Schmidt’s 86th birthday. We honored his memory and celebrated his passion for educating kids, scholarship, photography, history and fun. Perhaps the highlight of the week was the release of about 500 of Willie’s slides from the 1980’s and 1990’s. If you didn’t get a chance to see them, you are not too late! Visit and take a look. You might even find that you have been tagged. Stay tuned for another release of old slides on the Dudley Facebook page later this summer!

Sustainability In Action By #14962 Josh Olcott & #22406 Mollie Farnham

At Camp Dudley and Camp Kiniya, we are committed to creating a culture of sustainability through educational programming, healthy living, environmental stewardship, and responsible business practices in our campuses and communities. 1






Sustainability Steps Achieved: 1. Summer 2015 saw the completion of the Dudley compost building. Hundreds of pounds of food scraps were turned into nutrient rich soil for the garden (as opposed to becoming sludge in a landfill). The Senior Division helped Jeff Schwoebel maintain the pile as part of their service. 2. Dudley’s solar panel power generation, carbon offset, and cost savings are now tracked online. Since April they generated over 21,000 kilowatts, offset CO2 emissions (equivalent to driving 34,454 miles, or planting 213 trees) and saved a total of $1,260! 3. The farm-to-table major continues to be popular! Campers learn to grow, harvest and cook delicious organic veggies. Onion rings, French fries and personal pizza are a few favorites. 4. Green Mountain Compost takes all scraps and leftovers from the Kiniya dining hall and hosted the farm-to-plate major for a tour of their industrial facility. Amidst steaming piles of nutrient-rich soil (they decompose meat and dairy too!) our campers discovered just how valuable and fun dirt can be. 5. Kiniya’s bees brought liquid-sunshine honey to the table and pollination expertise to the fields once again. With the honey bee world wide population down 90% due to nasty pesticides, we are doing our part to keep populations healthy. 6. Did you know Kiniya’s point is a protected beach and very important nesting site for the endangered spiny softshell turtle? This year VT Wildlife specialists found 33 undisturbed nests with 49 observed hatchlings.


Winter Updates By #20001 Marnie McDonagh


While many have been disappointed in the lack of snow in Vermont this winter, our Maintenance crew has been delighted with warmer than usual temperatures that have carried us through January! The Kiniya Team have been hard at work on a number of major projects, scheduled for completion well ahead of Opening Day! Thanks to the generosity of both the family of an alumnus and the family of a current Board Member, the last two of our camper cabins in need of renovations, Casbah (1) and Hernandos (2), have been demolished and work is underway for brand new cabins to take their place. We’re thrilled that in 2016 every camper will live in a cabin that has been renovated within the last decade! In addition to the cabin renovations, our Kiniya Maintenance Crew is building a new Publications Department (3) from the ground up! This 12’x12’ building will house our photo and video equipment and provide a private office space essential to creating Wednesday Night Slideshows and The Spirit Publication. This is thanks to a very generous gift from another member of the Kiniya community.

D.C. Alumni Group Gathers for Hymn Sing By #21013 Sarah “Bear” McDonough

Down in the nation’s capital, we had a great time holding hymn sings with a group of camp alums that live in the DC area. We gather together at the apartment of Sarah (Bear) McDonough to laugh, tell old stories, and, of course, sing our favorite camp hymns. Per tradition, we start with a rambunctious first half and follow it up with a reflective second half to think about the week behind and the week ahead. We phone in out-of-towners for “Study War No More” solos, so if you see your phone buzzing on a Sunday night, don’t hesitate to answer! We typically gather ten to fifteen regulars including #17982 Matt McElroy, #17920 Connor Smith, #17654 David Fitzpatrick, #167384 Taylor Brown, #16730 Rick Raymond, #18912 Will Dobbs-Allsopp, #21883 Kelly Dale, #20297 Chloe Potash, #18108 Harry Jackson, #19494 Katie Gray, #17391 Pat O’Leary, #18641 Rob McDonald, #19193 Conor

2016 Winter AL/JL Leadership Week By #23685 Colin Loher

In late December, sixteen young leaders assembled at Dudley to participate in our 6th annual winter leadership experience. This was by far our most well attended winter leadership week and that was because for the first time we invited JL’s to the course. This fun-filled, five-day course/adventure provided participants with a unique opportunity to enjoy one of their favorite places with some of their closest friends during a special time of the year. It was even more special with the arrival of our first significant snow! The focus of the week was outdoor leadership. To that end our young leaders were provided with: • 2 days of a Wilderness First Aid course and certification from Stonehearth Outdoor Learning Opportunities ( AKA: The SOLO School ), • Lots of outdoor skills practice in which leaders practiced their outdoor cooking skills, • Time exploring and relaxing at our remote Stacy village. Big thanks go out to our superstar leadership team: #13758 Jake Rutter, #24014 Tom and #24015 Jenn Brayden, and #22645 Raphie Mettle. This course benefitted greatly from their individual leadership, outdoor knowledge, and wisdom. A big part of the reason the course was so successful was because of their mentorship. The pictures tell the story. See the full gallery:

Matt Giles (L) on the Weebee stage in the early 2000’s

Basketball has always been my obsession, but I was especially manic during the five or so years I worked at Camp Dudley. Whether it was recruiting rankings, or coaching moves, or halfcourt sets, I followed everything related to the bouncing leather ball. So when Joe Mantegna, the head coach of Blair Academy, then (and now) a top high school program in New Jersey, dropped by Westport to run a few sessions for basketball majors in the summer of 2005, I was stoked. It wasn’t that I had questions for the coach — I had many of those — but I more wanted to pick his brain about recruits, and what he thought of various prospects like Peyton Siva and Lance Stephenson (this was pre-Google’s omnipotence in all corners of the web, so I really had to deep-dive into the fan forums and grainy VHS tapes to expand my knowledge). After I graduated

college and started freelancing, I realized this obsession could be something I could possibly make money from. I started working as a fact-checker for ESPN the Magazine, and in my free time, contributed college basketball content for the magazine (my first piece was on Chicago State’s David Holton, a 5-foot-8 point guard who led the country in scoring). That gig led to further writing opportunities — with 350-plus Division I schools in the country, there are a lot of players with a lot of interesting backstories — and I now write for the New York Times, Deadspin, NBC Sports, the Washington Post, Vice Sports, and FiveThirtyEight (among others, and along with my full time job as an editor at Popular Science). That passion, fostered during those days at Camp Dudley as a Leader in Columbia and Wesleyan, has continued to fuel a career that I never envisioned.

25 Years Ago, the Summer of 1991... From the Archives, with special thanks to #12664 Ted Smith


represented Dudley’s 107th season and #7405 Director Willie Schmidt’s 17th. Willie reports in mid February that, “Camp will be full and 3/4 of last year’s summer staff will be returning.” Nationally, George H.W. Bush is President, the Soviet Union dissolves, the Gulf War is underway, and the NY Giants nip the Buffalo Bills 20-19 in the Super Bowl. The Dow hits 3000 for the first time. Bill Clinton will seek the 1992 Democratic nomination. Ted Smith, then a Leader in Linwood recalls, “Dudley, that summer, was like an ocean wave that starts as a swell far out to sea, approaching land with gathering force and determination ahead of its thunderous landfall. From 1988-1994, we knew Willie would not be our Director forever. With that in mind, my generation of Leaders (who had been campers in the late ’70s and early ’80s under Willie) was now in our ‘summers-from-college, Leader-age-prime,’ and we wanted to ride that wave to the shore of Willie’s last summer. None of us could figure out how he maintained his energy, his positivity, his passion for Dudley, and his love of Dudleyites summer after summer. We just knew we wanted to be around him, have him as a boss, and soak in his aura for as long as possible.”

The CDA News featured Armed Services Dudleyites #12802 Pat Butler, serving with the Navy 7th Fleet, in the Pacific and Persian Gulf aboard USS McClusky; #12415 Ben Sudduth, USMC, approaching five years of service, specializing in fire fighting. The Director’s Reunion tour reaches 45 cities, including a new “international push” to the Caribbean, London, Hannover, Germany, and Amsterdam. Twenty-seven European boys attended Dudley this summer. A 30th Anniversary German Exchange Program celebration is set for 1992. Regarding leadership, #12664 Ted Smith recalls, “In looking back at the 1991 Last Whistle, one thing that strikes me is a Leadership corps that remains devoted to Dudley in 2016, as fathers of current campers, as current Staff members (some of whom have not missed a summer since 1991!), and as Board members including former Chairman #11889 Dwight Poler. The photo gallery is full of Dudley legends like #8070 Ben Nelson, #6056 Will Prior, #7593 Tom Walton, #12689 Carl Koenig, #11003 Mike Marks and future Director #12141 Andy Bisselle. Those men came to Dudley every year, imparting their wisdom and spreading their kindness to campers and leaders alike.”

The Camp Dudley News



n the weekend of March 11th, the 2016 Kiniya JLs gathered at Camp Dudley to spend the weekend catching up and participating in leadership exercises. We discussed what it means to be a leader at Camp Kiniya as well as the skills we can use when leading our cabins and teams. We spent a lot of time talking about the mission statement and main goals that Camp Kiniya and Dudley share as well as how we work towards these goals during the summer. Along with these discussions, we spent time understanding our own leadership styles and how we work with each other. We carried the energy from these workshops outside where we learned how to cook in preparation for hiking trips. We bonded as a group over Gail’s fabulous cooking (including her famous 7 Layer Bars!). Overall, the weekend was a great experience. This weekend really brought a lot of awareness to us as to what it takes to make sure young girls have the best sum-

mer of their lives and how much the camp is invested in preparing us JLs for the summer. As a group we are much more equipped to lead cabins and feel confident going into this summer. (Submitted by #21412 Gretchen Willmuth)


n the weekend of March 18th, Dudley hosted 19 young men who will be taking a big step up the leadership ladder to become Junior Leaders in the summer of 2016. By our estimate, this was the 20th year that Dudley hosted a JL Leadership Weekend. This gathering is an opportunity for the JLs to think deeply about what it means to lead at Dudley, to work with campers, and to begin learning the ropes of cabin leadership. The JLs this year were lucky to be assisted during the weekend by a stellar group of former and current Leaders and Staff. Joining our Director, Matt Storey, and Admission, Program, & Leadership Development Director, Evan George were Development Director, Dave “LangFu” Langston, Outdoor Program Director, Colin Loher, Food Service Director, Josh Olcott, Mark “Davo” Davenport, Jake Rutter, Dave Nelson, Tommy Dils, George Wells, and Rapheal Mettle.

The School House is 200 Years Old! Built in 1816 on Camp Dudley Road with limestone from a nearby quarry, the School House served schoolchildren of Westport for 100 years, closing its doors in 1916. At its prime, the school had 24 students and a library of 84 books. The School House has a commanding view of the Lake, the Champlain Bridge and the Adirondack Mountains. It has been a special place for generations of Dudleyites.

Helping the Other Fellow — #21649 George Rettaliata, Bay Shore, NY, was at Camp from 2010-13, where he must have learned what it means to put “the other fellow first.” The CD News recently spotted this story:

Since 5th grade, George has enjoyed helping children with special needs, in and out of school. A Varsity Tennis player for Long Island’s Chaminade High School, George wanted to find a way to combine his passions for tennis with working with special needs children. In 2014 he approached the director of Challenger Athletics – a local non-profit that fosters the growth of children through sports. A volunteer at Challenger Lacrosse program, George spoke to the director about expanding the program to tennis. In January 2015, Challenger Tennis was born. The program, free to the athletes, was quickly at capacity. George procured donations . . . 50 new Prince racquets and indoor tennis court time on Long Island. He coordinates 50 athletes, their families, and 100 registered “buddy” volunteers and pros every Saturday at tennis clinics. The program is unique. Each athlete is paired with a buddy/mentor so it is a 1:1 ratio, greatly enhancing the experience. The children have fun while learning the life-long sport of tennis. The courts are full of laughter, while friendships are formed.When the clinics are over, athletes are proud of what they accomplished and their buddies are rewarded knowing they made a difference and a new friend. Said George, “I loved my four summers at Dudley. Since day one, we learned the importance of putting the other fellow first. The effect this had on my life helped me to see the potential of an idea like Challenger Tennis. I hope the impact Challenger has on those involved is one that will stick with them forever, just how Dudley has George (left) coaching tennis stuck with me.”

#23225 Ryan Marrus, New York, NY, will be

at camp for his 4th summer in 2016. A soccer player, Ryan made the website of the Downtown United Soccer Club’s (DUSC). “Last month, Ryan Marrus, a member of the BU14 Blue travel team, had the experience of a lifetime at Yankee Stadium during the season finale against the New England Revolution. He met pro players on the field and was also honored for his community service. A volunteer coach, Ryan raised more than $10,000 to support City in the Community (CIC) after school programs.” Explains Ryan, “When I first started with DUSC as a 7-year old, I met Paul Jeffries, who coached another City Soccer program and asked for my help. It took a little work to get started. The first time almost no one showed up. I then teamed up with Adolfo Lee at PS 134 and was hooked, working with a small group of kids aged 5-8 on skill development and small-sided games. I was also then preparing for my bar mitzvah, which includes a service project. My work with CIC seemed like a natural fit. With the backing of the new NYC Football Club and Paul Jeffries, the program was stronger and I could see the progression of these kids’ skills and felt a real connection. The CIC’s ‘healthy hat trick’ program taught good eating and exercise habits through soccer. I asked people to consider a donation to CIC rather than gifts for my bar mitzvah. Donations started coming in and I raised more money than I had ever expected. I still get up every Sunday I don’t have a soccer game and head over to meet Adolfo and the kids for a couple of hours. It feels really nice to know that they valued and enjoyed having me coach them.”

The Camp Dudley Annual Fund Up and Over the Top in 2015 By #10555 Dave Langston, Development Director, Camp Dudley and Camp Kiniya


ur Camp community is truly amazing! Each year the goal of our Annual Fund is to raise enough money to support the scholarships for more than 250 boys and girls, augment our leadership development activities and help keep our facilities in top shape. That goal was $820,000 in 2015. After counting the final donations, dated December 31, 2015, we are pleased to report that you pushed us past our goal to an exciting $840,430! What an accomplishment! So meaningful to our boys and girls who come to the shores of Lake Champlain each year! Thank you! It took more than a year-end push to assure our success. We are grateful to the more than 200 donors

who “Honored a Camp Leader” with a gift during our online event in June. The donors who gave during “Willie’s Week” also helped move us forward, even as they enjoyed a large sample of Willie’s slides in the process. In the following pages we say THANK YOU to the more than 2,000 individual donors who gave gifts, both small and large to the Annual Fund and other needs at Camp. Each gift truly does make a difference! Thank You! 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!

Alumni Families Make it All Happen!

The Beckman Society #11373 Michael and Leila Stevens Planned Gift to Dudley

Become an Evergreen Donor Today “Dudley has been an important part of my life for over 40 years since I arrived as a Cub in 1973. Virtually every member of my family feels part of the Dudley family. I was the first generation of my family to attend camp, but my parents fell in love with the place and Willie Schmidt got them to donate the Stevens Lacrosse Field in 1978 which they thought they were doing anonymously until Willie made the announcement! My sisters, Kristin #13293 and Stephanie #13303, served on the staff in the late 1970s and were part of the first group of women to receive Dudley camp numbers. My wife, Leila, and I were married at Dudley and the selection of Camp for our wedding was Leila’s idea because she loves the place. Our sons, #21373 Will and #22073 Owen, both share our love of Dudley. Our Weimerdoodle’s name is Dudley and he lives the camp motto every day. For us, Dudley is a special place that we all cherish so when Leila and I updated our estate plan a few years ago, we decided to include a commitment to Dudley and Kiniya by becoming part of the Beckman Society. We hope that other people join the Beckman Society so that Dudley and Kiniya can continue to thrive for generations to come.” #11373 Mike Stevens Legal Name: Camp Dudley, Inc.

#9408 “Rusty” Davis and #19408 Linda Saarnijoki, Watertown, CT, announced their retirement from Taft on November 1, 2015. Rusty started at Taft in the fall of 1972 teaching physics. He coached golf and basketball during his early years at the school, and started the girls’ soccer program in 1974, coaching the girls’ team for 24 years and guiding them to four consecutive New England Championships from 19881991. In 1973, he was appointed the dean of the Middle Class, a position he held for many years until he took the job of dean of students for 12 years, and then ran the Residential Life program before becoming the assistant headmaster. Rusty holds the Donald Oscarson ’47 Master Chair at Taft. Linda joined the faculty of Taft in 1976. Since then, in addition to teaching, Linda has taken on various administrative duties, including class dean, dean of faculty, director of the library and head of the English department. Her coaching duties included varsity field hockey and varsity volleyball, and supervision of the outdoor program. After returning to full-time teaching for five years, Linda returned to administrative work as dean of faculty in 2013. Linda holds the William E. Sullivan Chair in English. Their daughter, #20108 Eliza Davis, was at Kiniya from 2007-2014, and was a leader in 2013 and 2014. Liza is a Taft School graduate now studying at Princeton. Said Headmaster Willy MacMullen, “ Can a teaching couple do more for a school, together and individually, than Rusty and Linda? I’m at the front of a long line of teachers who were mentored by them, blessed with their friendship, and inspired by their dedication. Linda is the absolute model of what teaching at Taft at its very best can look like. And Rusty, one of our greatest coaches ever, a fascinating and riveting physics teacher, has guided Taft in some of our most challenging moments. Great organizations have a compass that points the way forward, no matter the conditions: Linda and Rusty have been Taft’s compass.”

may know the satisfaction of attaining knowledge and understanding. My enthusiasm for the school and its future was wonderfully reinforced by the bright students, the talented faculty, and the caring parents with whom I met. I certainly now concur that Maple Street is a beacon of excellence in a beautiful Vermont setting. After 24 years in independent school education, I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of a school where “joyful learning” is a cherished cornerstone of the academic ethos and where each child is supported and challenged as they grow socially, emotionally, and intellectually.

Vera took Zoe to visit Camp Abbensen. Says Zoe, “It’s really a beautiful place and I felt so glad to show them my little part of Kiniya as they showed me Abbensen. It seems so similar to Kiniya but at the same time it’s so different. I’m so glad we do the exchange every year, and am so excited to meet the new girls coming to Kiniya summer 2016!”

Dudley Old Boys Gathering, Venice, FL Our luncheon this year at the Venice (that’s Florida, not Italy!) Yacht Club drew a robust group of 30 Old Boys and Gals. #5616 Eddie and Joan Card made it down from Temple Terrace with friends Dave Handing and Mary Marcell. Eddie started at Camp in 1937 and shared the story of Chief Beckman spotting him in a local Westport/Port Henry baseball game and offering him a scholarship on the spot. “That opened doors for me that I still can’t believe.” Eddie ran away with the low number award. #7865 Pete and Jeri Muhlhausen drove from Hudson, FL, to join the fun. #7441 Phil and #13283 Holly Bisselle came from Sarasota. Responding to Chairman Matt Quigley’s comments Eddie Card . . . low number . . . about construction 5-6-1-6! possibilities near Roe Lodge, Phil said, “Be careful, one of Captain Cavalenko’s horses is buried there. I can show you the exact spot.” Phil and Holly were getting ready for their 80th birthday celebrations. Brother #8161 Walt “Righty” Bisselle was on hand, with a short commute from his and Val’s Venice home. The short distance award went to Jean and Jerry Forcier, who had a 4-minute walk to the Yacht Club. Conversely, the “above and beyond the call of duty” awards went to #9675 Dave West, #9191 Carlton “Cleve” Cleveland, and #8767 Sandy and #19067 Patricia Short who had to navigate a traffic nightmare on interstate 75 to make it up from Naples. Cleve recalled the arrival of the Hungarian refugees after the 1956 uprising . . . “super soccer players. I had Levente (Urchi) Delaczy and Danny Gaul in my cabin. They had no clue about baseball but discovered that if they were hit by a pitched ball while batting they could go to first base. So several of them would

Joe loved Camp Dudley, the place that introduced him to climbing – a passion to the very end.” Joe was a teacher at Espicopal High School in Alexandria, VA, which posted this note in

The Camp Dudley News

their magazine. “Episcopal community mourns the loss of EHS teacher, coach, mentor, and friend Joe Halm. A member of the EHS faculty since 1996, Joe was a pillar of this community, admired by students and faculty alike.” The Adirondack High Peaks Foundation described Joe as “ an avid outdoorsman, hiker, 46er, teacher, mentor, family man and friend. Joe spent many a summer working at Silver Bay YMCA of the Adirondacks and mentoring young people to the ways of being educated outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen.

Cornel Burgtorf, Hannover,

Germany. On December 16, 2015 we learned of Cornel’s passing. Wolfgang Funke, YMCA General Secretary wrote, “We are very sad and regret to inform you that our chairman of many years’ standing (19792006) and honorary member Cornel Burgtorf died in the Cornel Burgtorf night between Sunday and Monday. With Cornel Burgtorf YMCA Hannover loses a man who always supported us wholeheartedly. He was a person who committed himself to an extraordinary extent to YMCA Hannover and left an important mark on our organization. Thanks to Cornel’s visions about YMCA Hannover in the midst of an international family, YMCA Hannover is still in very close contact to its various international partners. We can’t be grateful enough for the endeavor he showed over the many years. All this illustrates that he deserved rightly to be awarded the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany. Cornel loved the different shades of the various cultures and we were able to learn a lot through his attitudes for our work at YMCA Hannover. No matter which partner I was talking to, in the end I was always asked to pass on regards to Cornel. Cornel Burgtorf was an ‘international’ in the truest sense.” Cornel visited Dudley and made a point of staying in touch with Dudley friends from the 1960s through the 2000s.

#14706 Ingrid Mangold, Hannover Germany. We

learned of Ingrid’s passing away in Hannover on February 7 following a brief illness. She and her husband #9791 Eberhard had been the indefatigable promoters of the Abbensen and Dudley Exchange program for more than a half century. They spent a year working at the Rye Country Day School in Rye, NY. They would have been married for 50 years in June. Every Dudley group that visited was introduced to the warmth of the German people through Ingrid and Eberhard. Recalls one exchange camper, #19304 Tom Dils, “I remember being a nervous but excited 14-year-old stepping off the plane at the Hannover Airport during the summer of 2009. I was one of six campers on the German Exchange, but unlike many of my buddies, I’d never traveled this far away from home. The overnight flight

was exhausting, but exciting for what awaited us. Well, the Mangolds made sure that we didn’t have to wait long, greeting our group at the gate with a breakfast of orange juice and Haribo gummy bears. This probably kicked off my month-long addiction to German candy and chocolate, but I also felt so welcomed and appreciated. Knowing from the first minute we arrived that we had the support of the Mangolds made it even easier to embark on that ride through Germany and let it take us places we’d never imagined.” Added #11264 Mark “Davo” Davenport, “That was classic Ingrid. If she was ambulatory – she once came to the airport in a hip to toe cast after a bad leg break – she was there to greet her ‘American friends.’ She will be deeply missed by her many friends at Dudley and in America.”

Millicent Hope Treiber, Old Brookville, NY, died

peacefully on September 14, 2015 surrounded by her loving family, many of whom are Dudleyites. Hope was born in Morristown, NJ, raised in Sayville, NY, where she played soccer and was a cheerleader. She was proud of her participation in the war effort as a plane spotter in the tower of the old Sayville High School. She graduated from St. John’s Episcopal Hospital Nursing School as an RN. Hope married Howard F. Treiber in1949 and moved to Old Brookville in 1955 where they raised their six children. Hope loved her home most when it was filled with her children, grandchildren and friends. She was an active golfer, tennis player, jogger, and worked out at the Glen Cove Y. Hope loved nature, whether feeding birds, watching baby birds in her birdhouses, butterflies, insects, bird nests, or her ever-blooming garden. She was an accomplished crossword aficionado and a dedicated


Jeopardy fan. Fiercely independent, she always put others’ needs ahead of hers. She was a remarkable mother and grandmother and will be missed so very much. She is survived by her brother, Henry C. Haer (Sally); her children - #9816 John H. (Carol-Ann), #9968 H. Craig (Lora), Millicent Hope #10067 Bruce D. (Virginia), #10524 Treiber Peter S. (Irene), #10525 Scott R. (Jo-Ellen), Pamela H.

Jack was a loving son, brother and a faithful friend to everyone. He had a cheerful, kind spirit and will be remembered for his keen sense of humor and debating skills, particularly politics, football, music, and current events. His childhood friends, teammates, and coaches from the Queensbury School and West Mountain remained close. His years at Skidmore where he matured as a scholar and made lifelong friends left an indelible mark. Rosemont College loved Jack’s insight and contribution to the field of counseling psychology. Jack is survived by his parents John Strange Sr. of Potomac Falls, VA, and Kelly M. Dempsey of Lake George, NY; his sister Lyndsay Strange of Salt Lake City, UT, and many aunts and uncles and cousins.

walk on the damp grass approaching the entrance sign of one of my favorite places in the world, my camp. Next year I will walk to the same sign feel the same wet grass

smell the same lake and have the best time again. As you walk down the Chapel Hill you hear Matt the director greeting campers, and the laughing kids having a ball. As I walk down to Swim Point I see the beautiful landscape of Lake Champlain, the lake and the mountains. As my team huddles up before the last half of our basketball game and I smell all the sweat and, the smell of victory. My camp and all the great people in it are sacred to me. My camp is in Westport, NY, on Lake Champlain, which is very special to me. It is special to me because it is two of my favorite places combined Lake Michigan and the Highlands. I feel a strong connection to the Dud because it has a strong vibe, and they always find a fun way to do things. Along with that it has many activities I like such as athletics, outdoors, water sports, and music. During camp I feel joyful, relaxed, and I’m always in a happy mode. Dudley has introduced me many new activities what I really like, one of them, which is sailing. I traveled to camp this year knowing little about sailing, but next year I will sail my friends all along the lake. My brother also comes up to camp with me we made great memories there and tell them on the way home. I like Dudley more than any other place because I have no one bossing me around, and I have freedom to do whatever I want to. I can sail on the lake, play golf, shoot hoops, play cards, paddleboard, or do archery all in one place the Dud. The Dudley experience allows me to be myself because no one will judge you, try new things, and meet new friends. This place is unlike any other because I will always see an adult at home, but here there are no parents and happy modes all around you. Camp Dudley is one of the greatest places on Earth and I hope I can go there for many more years to come!
