Tier 6: Tuition Assistance Program
At Dudley and Kiniya, we are proud of our mission and we work to make the camp experience available to as many families as possible, which is why the Board of Trustees has made it a priority to continue to offer our tiered pricing program for 2023.
We recognize that camp is a big investment. We also know that it is of tremendous value to the development of every child. The tuition a family can afford to pay for an equally valuable experience varies drastically based on their own personal financial position.
The tuition tier selected by each family is expected to reflect the family’s income level and asset base. Our goal is that our camps will be populated by campers drawn from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds.
Your tier selection is confidential and, regardless of your selection, the experience and program for every camper is the same. We are able to offer Tiers 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6 at a subsidized rate due to the generosity of the Dudley & Kiniya family and their support of The Annual Fund.
In 2022, through the generosity of our camp family, we subsidized over $1.1 million of camper tuition through our tiered pricing and tuition assistance program.
Tier 1: $6,600: This tuition most accurately reflects the true cost of camp for each camper.
Tier 2: $5,950: This tuition tier is in line with our traditional tuition and reflects a slightly subsidized rate for each camper in which endowment funds are used to off-set some costs.
Tier 3: $4,950: This tuition tier reflects a more heavily subsidized rate for each camper.
Tier 4: $3,950: This tuition tier reflects a deeply discounted rate for each camper and is heavily funded through the Annual Fund, which is made possible through the generosity of our alumni and parents.
Tier 5: $2,950: At this tier, over 50% of the cost of camp is covered by our Annual Fund. Our hope is that this tier allows families to forego our traditional tuition assistance program.
Tier 6: Reflects our traditional tuition assistance program. For this tuition option, we ask families to tell us how much they think they can afford and then complete a financial aid application. We then do our best to award aid based on financial need.
How Much Should I Pay?
In Tiers 1-5 we ask that you pay the rate that best suits the financial picture of your family while recognizing the investment you are making in your child and the Dudley & Kiniya experience.
In Tier 6, we’ll ask how much you think you can contribute toward tuition and then assess need in accordance with the aid application. Our expectation is that every family makes an investment in their camper experience.
*In the event that your camper must return home due to an actual or suspected case of COVID-19, tuition is refundable upon request based on the below weekly pro-rata schedule:
We are extremely proud of our Tuition Assistance Program, which allows us to support families through a robust financial aid program. In 2022, approximately 18% of the campers at both Camps participated in our Tuition Assistance Program. This is made possible through the generous support of The Annual Fund.
