Award to the William J. Schmidt Annual Scholarship Fund at Camp Dudley
For over 120 years, Dudley has remained true to its original mission: to develop boys’ moral, personal and physical skills in the spirit of fellowship and fun. One of the reasons Camp Dudley has continued to thrive since 1885, providing magical summer experiences for thousands of young people, 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 opportunity.
