Getting to Camp Dudley

By Car:

From the north, south, or west: Take I 87 (the Northway) that is the main route between Albany and Montreal to exit 31. At the exit, go (east) to Westport on Route 9N. Go through town on Route 9N/22 South. 1.5 miles after leaving the Village of Westport, you will see the Dudley Rd. on the left, with a sign that points to Camp Dudley. Follow this road until you see the Camp.

From Vermont, cross Lake Champlain by the ferry at Charlotte, go south on Rt. 22 to Westport, then follow directions above; or use the bridge at Crown Point, NY, and take Rt. 22 & 9N north. About 9 miles past Port Henry you will see a sign for Camp Dudley pointing to the right. Follow this road to Camp Dudley.

By Train:

Amtrak has a train that leaves Penn Station in New York City daily in the morning and, with no switching of trains, arrives at the Westport Train Station in the afternoon. If you tell us your son’s train schedule, we will pick him up at the train station. This is a great opportunity for a group to travel together.

By Plane to Burlington, Vermont and Albany, NY:

Burlington and Albany Airports are served by many airlines, including USAir, Continental, and United. Your son’s flight should be scheduled to arrive at one of these airports on the opening day for the Camp season, or the first day of the second session, depending on the session which your son is attending. We prefer that your son arrive before 3 PM. This will allow him to have his first meal and a full evening with his new cabin-mates and Leaders on his first day of Camp. There may be some cases when boys need to arrive later in the day. Please let the Office know (in advance) of any arrivals after 3:00 p.m.

Camp Dudley will arrange ground transportation from the Burlington or Albany Airports to Camp. You must let us know the time of arrival, airline and flight number.  Return Flight: Your son’s return flight must be on either the closing day of the first session or the closing day of the Camp season, depending on the session which your son is attending, and must be scheduled for 3 PM or later. Do not schedule a flight before 3 PM, since transportation to the airport cannot be arranged.

For All Boys Under the Age of 12 Traveling by Plane:

Most airlines consider boys under the age of 12 to be “an unaccompanied minor.” Check with your airline to ensure that all necessary paperwork is completed and in the child’s possession when he flies. He will need these papers on both his outbound and return flights. We cannot be responsible for this required paperwork…it can only be completed by parents or guardians.

If you are interested in coordinating group transportation for boys in your area either by public conveyance or by charter, contact the Camp Office. We can assist you by providing contact information for other campers in the vicinity. In your acceptance packet, we have provided postcards for you to use to notify us of how your son is arriving/departing. If you have any questions call the Camp Office at 518-962-4720. We want to make sure your son’s trip to Camp Dudley is smooth for him and for you.

Please Note:

Current conditions at airports concerning all areas of security will make it much more difficult for your son to handle lots of baggage. A particular problem is the distance from permitted parking locations to the terminal and the fact that vehicles are not allowed to remain outside the terminal unattended. This situation will be problem enough for a family and one camper to deal with coming to Camp; we will not be able to deal with five, six or more campers with loads of baggage leaving Camp.

BAGGAGE:

We strongly suggest that the boy coming to Camp by public transportation carry only the luggage he is able to handle himself. For his trip home we will only allow him to carry what he can handle. This applies for trains and buses also.

We will utilize UPS and FedEx ground services for sending excess baggage home and suggest you do the same for sending trunks and large duffel bags to Camp
