One of the highlights of the Camp Dudley season occurs when boys are assigned to a team for daily competition within their division. The games played range from soccer, baseball, basketball, lacrosse, flag football, ultimate frisbee to water polo. Better yet are the team names to which they will now show their allegiance for the rest of the session. Our Juniors and Seniors choose team names from the pantheon of Camp’s athletics legends– Mott, McCutcheon, Prior and Gherke, to name a few. Cub and Plebe leaders are allowed to show more creativity, and this session we’ll see highly anticipated match-ups featuring Zesty versus 2 Pops, Fooslang versus Bingo Game Night, and Double Dutch versus Sturz Local 62. The boys fully embrace these team competitions, and they will have fond memories of the great times they shared with their mates on the fields and courts and diamonds in Westport.
Athletics is off to a great start at Kiniya! We are psyched to have expanded our fields to the entrance of Camp and added basketball lines to one of our back tennis courts allowing divisions to be playing the same sport at the same time. By now, campers have had the opportunity to play each of our 4 team sports, basketball, softball, soccer, and lacrosse. In addition to these team sports, we are offering a field hockey athletics major for the first time this year. We are so glad to provide these offerings for those preparing for the fall season and those trying something new. Next up, let the track meets begin! Keep your fingers crossed for great weather for the rest of the session and summer!
