The Pat Peavy Award is given annually to one Leader at Dudley and one Leader at Kiniya who best exemplifies the traits of Dudley / Kiniya Leadership … caring, integrity, and putting others before self. Our Summer 2021 award was given to #22172 Austin Carmody, and #22887 Lydia Groves.
Two Dudley men, Head Coach Chris Feifs #16319 and tourney MVP Tommy Burke #22569, led the UVM Men’s Lacrosse Team to the top of the America East Conference for the first time, as well as their first birth in the NCAA Championship.
#24447 Carlos Toribio was an essential member of the 2016 and 2019 A-Hut Teams. His energetic and friendly demeanor will be remembered by anyone who worked with Carlos.

In December, #8276 Charlie Updike introduced our Camps to Tracy Ormsbee, the publisher of Adirondack Explorer. Tracy and Charlie visited Camp and had a socially distant tour with Matt Storey and Dave Langston. Tracy was pleased to see the Dudley physical plant after hearing about it for so many years from Charlie. As a result of this relationship, we hope that the Adirondack Explorer will help us tell the story of Camp Dudley and Camp Kiniya’s work with our campers.
