Peter Duryea (July 14, 1939 – March 24, 2013) was an American actor. He is best known for appearing in a pilot episode of Star Trek: The Original Series, "The Cage" (1964), most of which was reused in "The Menagerie" (1966), as Lieutenant Tyler. His father, Dan Duryea (1907–1968), was also an actor.

Peter Duryea was the head of a non-profit society called Guiding Hands Recreation Society which hosted a peaceful getaway called the Tipi Camp,[1] located in the West Kootenay area of British Columbia, Canada. Groups and individuals book time at the Tipi Camp to reflect in a gentle collection of tipis along an idyllic lake.

People travel from all over North America to participate in many of the different programs available at the Tipi Camp. Some of the more popular programs are the "W.I.S.E Camp" (Wilderness Immersion for Self-Esteem) and the annual Yoga Retreats. The "W.I.S.E Camp" is intended for teenagers and emphasizes self-respect, respect for others and respect for the environment. The closest town is Nelson.[2]
