Camp Dudley is pleased to announce that Evan George, Camper #15017, is joining the year-round team as the new Admissions and Program Director. In this new role, Evan will be responsible for the the coordination, outreach, and further development of our admissions and enrollment process at Camp Dudley, with particular attention paid to expanding the diversity of campers in Westport and Colchester each summer. During the camp season, Evan will be the Program Director at Camp Dudley. Following in the footsteps of greats like Ben Nelson #8070, JR Scanlon #10932, and Mike Schloat #15288, Evan will work to continue the storied history of Dudley programs while also looking to find new and innovative ways to enhance each aspect of the 4 pillars of Dudley’s program: athletics, the arts, the outdoors, and spirituality.
Evan’s first interaction with Dudley was attending Sunday Chapel services with his father, Rev. Floyd E. (Skip) George III, who was invited to preach at Dudley when he was serving the Westport Federated Church from 1987 until 1993. Evan then became a Cub in 1989 and attended Dudley for the next 5 years (the highlight of which was a Long Lake canoe trip led by our current Director, Matt Storey!), including the German Exchange Program. Evan returned to Dudley as a Leader in 2000, was the Senior Division Head from 2001-2003, and, in 2004, Evan ran the Boathouse. Though Evan hasn’t spent a summer in Westport since, Camp Dudley has never been far from his heart as he met his wife here, Diana McGuigan #18079. Three of Evan’s nephews and one niece now have camp numbers, Jacob Martz #20695, Samuel Scott #21854, Ben Scott #22554, and Hannah McGuigan #22879.
In his professional life, Evan has been guided by the lessons of leadership and service he learned at Dudley. After graduating from Hobart College in 2001, Evan became an English teacher and the head Varsity Soccer Coach at the Winchendon School in Massachusetts, where he led them to the NEPSAC Class B Championship in 2003. A native of New York City, Evan returned in 2005 as a program administrator for Working In Support of Education, Inc. (WISE), an educational non-profit focused creating social entrepreneurship programs for New York City’s public school students. Evan then became a Fellow at the Coro New York Leadership Center, where he studied organizational and leadership development in the public affairs arena. For the past 5 years, Evan has been with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation as a Project Manager overseeing the development of Parks concessions.
