Summer 2021 Reopening Plan

Updated May 18, 2021

We are committed to providing the most up-to-date information about our plans, policies, and protocols for the Summer of 2021. This page will be updated as new information becomes available. Given the ever-changing landscape regarding COVID-19, all of the offerings on this page are subject to change.

Though some things will look different this season, the Dudley & Kiniya program will, at its core, be as it’s always been…focused on our mission, motto, core values, and our four program pillars, surrounded by our culture of safety.

We can’t wait for the summer ahead!

We received the fantastic news that Overnight Camps in New York will officially be allowed to reopen and operate! This is obviously a great step in the right direction. In the coming weeks, the NYS Dept. of Health will release more specific guidance and we will update this page when that is released.

Travel Advisories

Both New York and Vermont, remain under travel advisors. We do not know how much longer these will be in place, but here are the specifics, but we recommend that you take a look at guidance for New York and Vermont.

The Other Fellow First Promise

The Other Fellow First Promise

Every summer, our number one priority is the health and safety of our summer community. We feel this is at the core of our motto, “The Other Fellow First.” It’s not just one person’s job. All of us need to be looking out for one another, always. This summer presents a unique challenge because it’s more evident than ever that our decisions and behavior can directly impact someone else. That’s why this year, we’ve created the Other Fellow First Promise. This a promise of mutual trust that all of us – campers, leaders, staff, & parents – will take on this responsibility to care for one other at all times and always think about how our decisions and actions will affect everyone in our community.
