One of the reasons Camp Dudley’s magic has sustained itself since 1885 is because of the timelessness of its motto—“The Other Fellow First”—a motto that resonates through every stages of a man’s life. The William J. Schmidt Annual Scholarship Fund’s goal is to raise money to enable boys and young men to attend Dudley who would not otherwise have the chance.
