Tier 4: Tuition Assistance Program
Dudley & Kiniya believe deeply in making our camps financially accessible to a wide cross-section of incomes. A summer camp experience can be life-changing, and, as much as possible, we don’t want financial circumstances to be a barrier to a summer in Westport or Colchester.
Traditionally, we have worked to support families through our robust financial aid program. However, we recognize a need to do more, which is why we’re beginning to use a tiered tuition model while also continuing to use our traditional financial aid program.
Your tier selection is completely confidential and the experience for every camper is the same.
Tier 1: Most accurately reflects the true cost of camp for each camper, including but not limited to: staff, meals, program costs, maintenance and upkeep, utilities, insurance, equipment repair, overhead and depreciation. Please pay this amount if you are able.
Tier 2: This is in line with our traditional tuition and reflects a slightly subsidized rate for each camper, including food, staff, and program costs. We are able to offer this tuition due to the generosity of the Dudley & Kiniya family.
Tier 3: Reflects a more heavily subsidized rate for each camper, including food, staff, and supplies. We are able to offer this tuition due to the generosity of the Dudley & Kiniya family.
Tier 4: As a charitable, non-profit organization, we strive to ensure that as many families as possible have access to our programs regardless of ability to pay. Families have the option of utilizing our Tuition Assistance Program. For this tuition option we ask families to submit a financial aid application through a separate online application administered by TADS, a widely used and highly respected financial aid application program. Once you complete the enrollment application and you select Tier 4 we will send you a link to get started with your TADS application. After you submit the TADS application we will grant aid based on need demonstrated in your application. Please note that we will not be able to grant financial aid until the TADS application is complete.
In 2018 we gave tuition assistance to approximately 25% of the campers at both Camps totaling nearly $800,000 in tuition reductions.
How Much Should I Pay?
In Tiers 1-3 we ask that you pay the rate that best suits the financial picture of your family.
In Tier 4, we’ll ask how much you think you can contribute toward tuition and then assess need in accordance with the aid application.
Other Ways to Make Tuition Affordable
Beyond our Tiered Tuition we also offer flexible payment plans to spread payments out over a period of time that is manageable for your budget. You can contact our Business Manager, Fred Guffey for more information on setting up a payment plan with us.
We require a $400 deposit when you submit your application, which goes toward your final tuition balance. If you would like to request a deposit reduction request, please email our Admission Director, Evan George.
We accept credit cards to pay the deposit and/or tuition. You can also send a check to pay for the deposit or tuition payment
