DCMS Campers in New England

September 11, 2012

This summer DCMS grade 9 student, Lance Pelecanos, received a scholarship to return to Camp Dudley in New York for a month of camping fun and personal growth. He was very excited to once again be paired with lead counselor Tom McDonough (S’08).  Here is a picture of the gentleman outside of their cabin.

Many Deep Creek Middle School students spend their summers at camps locally and in New England.  The school and camps work to obtain sponsorships for the students and many Island School families support the program by hosting students on their way to or from camp, serving as chaperones, providing gear or sponsoring students.  Many thanks to the following families for their contributions this summer:

  • Family of Simon Mann-Gow (F08)
  • Family of Julie Thomsen (F07)
  • Christian Henry
  • Rachel Shapiro

If you would like to support DCMS campers in their future adventures, please contact principal Joanna Paul at

    As a Camp Dudley alum, I am psyched to see this photo! Congrats to Lance Pelecanos, and may he enjoy many more summers on the shores of Lake Champlain. My daughter Hadley has attended Camp Dudley at Kiniya and is currently a student at The Island School. Hopefully she will meet Lance in her visits to his school!
