Saginaw Counselor Rosters 1957 to 1972

Rummaging through old files we stumbled upon these original lists from Rose Heiman’s Olivetti of all the Boy’s and Girl’s Camp counselors during this formative era at Saginaw.

What you will notice more than anything is that the names are their formal driver’s license names like Hugh (Hank), Conrad (Connie), Bruce (Blazer), and Marvin (Mickey), not necessarily the familiar names you knew them as when they were your counselors.

These were our big brothers and sisters, our mentors, the people we looked up to each year to teach us the ropes at Saginaw.

Hill 1 1967: Mentors: Hank Aberman and Cal Reichelle Mentees: Terry Sisisky, Steve Greene, Donny Gettinger, Crry Reines, Max Balotin, Jimmy Newman, Bobby Haft, Moe Dweck, Jack Copeland,

Any way you look at these they represent a Who’s Who of the people that influenced our lives.  Many of 80+ people on a list are repeat offenders, returning year after year, building a legacy of their time spent at Saginaw.

Take a moment and peruse a couple of the year’s when you were there and I am sure you will see lots of familiar names from your past in the people who made up the Saginaw Counselor Staff each summer.
