Camp Dudley / Kiniya — YOHA!

Information for the NOLS trip can be found here. Check back often for new information. If you have any questions you can email Dawn

Overview & History

Dudley has offered leadership-based, extended wilderness trips for over ten years. These trips are designed for our leaders in training and take place in both summer and winter. In 2008, this branch of the Camp program was dubbed the Boys’ Camping Society after Camp Dudley’s original name. As Dudley and the BCS continued to evolve over time, we’ve found ourselves ready to take the adventure to the next level. In the past, our trips have ventured into the Adirondacks, White Mountains, The Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, the Maine Coast, and even to northeastern Ontario.

In 2012, we partnered with NOLS, one of the oldest and most prestigious outdoor leadership schools in the country, to create an even bigger and better wilderness trip for our young leaders.

About the Trips

The focus of these trips is on leadership development in small groups, and in a wilderness setting. In addition, trips maintain a firm grasp on Dudley & Kiniya’s roots, staff and leadership, and traditions. “The Other Fellow First,” our Camp Motto, remains part of an ongoing conversation. While on the trail, we do Vespers and Sunday Talks and relate much of what we learn back to leadership at Camp. We maintain Camp continuity by balancing our 4 Dudley pillars in our daily activities, Athletics, the Arts, the Outdoors, and Spirituality
