Tier 5:    Tuition Assistance Program

At Dudley and Kiniya we are proud of our mission and we set the goal for ourselves to work to make the camp experience available to as many families as possible. We are proud to support families through a robust financial aid program, but we also recognize a need to do more, which is why the Board of Trustees has made it a priority to continue to offer our tiered pricing program for 2020.

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 at a subsidized rate due to the generosity of the Dudley & Kiniya family and their support of The Annual Fund. Please select a tier that is most suitable for your family.


Tier 1: $6,450 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: 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.

In 2019 we gave tuition assistance to approximately 20% of the campers at both Camps totaling nearly $900,000 in tuition reductions.

How Much Should I Pay?

In Tiers 1-4 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 5, 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.
