Camp Dudley and Kiniya and the wild Spring weather

• 7 years ago • Announcements | Blogs | Uncategorized

It has been well documented on the national news, we’ve had a visit from the Governor, Andrew Cuomo and despite rising tides, we’re still all set for another spectacular summer on both sides of Lake Champlain!  After a record amount of snow covered the North Country and Green Mountains this winter, Mother Nature did not hold back on turning that pretty snow into heavy rain – – – the combination of snow melting and rain falling allowed Lake Champlain to surge to record heights.  Currently, the Lake is almost 103 feet deep compared with the usual high at this time of the spring at 97 feet.  In Westport, erosion caused significant shoreline damage which has prompted us to be creative with how we will use a few of our facilities.  In Colchester, Junior Beach has more of a “Junior Lake” feel to it. Fortunately, our maintenance crew along with several alumni volunteers and construction teams will have Camp ready for opening day!  Our location on the shore of Champlain doesn’t come without it’s challenges but the entire Dudley team has reacted quickly and well.  We may swim in a slightly different spot, sail from a new location, or discover different  ways to explore our shoreline.  Nevertheless, we will be ready to welcome all of you very soon for another season of “The Other Fellow First!”  We’re counting the days…
