Here is the latest Kiniya Slideshow courtesy of the Kiniya Publications Department!
Amid all the excitement of World Cup fever, the Athletics Department has gotten off to a hot start with a full slate of competitions already in the books this session. Team games began last Thursday, and boys received sport-specific instruction in their first session of Team Majors on Saturday. Senior and Junior teams have battled it out in soccer, flag football and lacrosse (among other team sports), while the Cubs and Plebes have enjoyed intra-divisional games in baseball, basketball, and floor hockey (in our new outdoor floor hockey playing space). Our Individual Majors program has also started, with strong turnouts from the boys at archery and riflery.
Even though the weather has been sticky early this week, the coaching and the energy level from our athletes has been excellent. We’re fired up about the prospects of a great first session!

#12228 Rob Campbell has taken his talents from Witherbee Hall to the bright lights of Broadway! Rob spent his first year at Dudley in 1977 as a Plebe in Huron Cabin and progressed through the camper and leadership ranks. Davo reflects that “Rob was a Schmidt brother & Henry Timm favorite in the hall.” The picture above shows Rob playing a female television reporter in the 1984 Big Show, Gamines.
You can catch the Yale School of Drama graduate, Campbell in the Tony Award Winning, “All the Way” at the Neil Simon Theatre now. Congrats, Rob!

YOU DID IT! During the past 30 hours the Dudley Family generated 163 gifts and $31,695.30 to support the boys and girls that will come through our gates in just a few weeks! In addition, we have $6,700 in corporate matching gifts to process. What amazing results!
We went more than 30 gifts over our goal! Raised more than $30,000! For our 130th summer…all in 30 hours! See the pattern?
We have enjoyed broad support of alumni, parents, grandparents, friends, campers, leaders and staff. THANK YOU!
Here are some highlights that we want to share:
- Supporters spanned the generations and represent both camps.
- Donors made gifts to honor our 130 year tradition ($130), the 30 hour challenge ($30) and the camp number of a loved one (i.e., $255.53)
- Cabin mates reconnected from bygone times.
- Some folks made their first gifts to camp.
- Alums and parents honored the memory of loved ones who attended camp.
- Campers honored their leaders
- We have discovered some “Lost Sheep”
- Donors increased the value of the gift by using corporate matching gift programs
What a wonderful event! Your commitment to our mission and timeless motto “the other fellow first” made this possible!
Gifts to the Camp Dudley Annual Fund are welcome at any time during the year. We welcome matching gifts and are pleased to assist you in processing those.
On behalf of the campers at Dudley and Kiniya, Thank You!
