Saginaw Supes (a.k.a. Saginaw Super Seniors as in the Hill and Acropolis Alumni) is a shared repository of photos, documents, and other memorabilia that rekindle the fond memories we all have of summer days spent in the safe haven we called Camp Saginaw. The place was hot and humid…the showers were cold….the food always a unique experience….the facilities marginally better than average…but the camaraderie was unparalleled and it fostered relationships that have lasted a lifetime.
Indelibly in our minds remain images of the Hill Court, Dell, Saniford Hall, Russ Hall, Canteen, Pagodas, Upper Field, Lower Field, Mess Hall, and yes the Infirmary…. Color War, Songfests, League Games, Mr. and Miss Saginaw, Free Swim, Brother and Sister, Musical Productions, Visiting Day, and the Hill-IJ Game. This site celebrates a trove of experiences with equal portion fact and willful suspension of disbelief, but then again it is our Saginaw reality.
We would be remiss if we did not that the founders and owners of Camp Saginaw Morris Edelson, Meyer and Rose Heiman, and Lou Sherr for bringing about this little piece of paradise in the Garden Spot of Pennsylvania for us to grow up in and spread our youthful wings.
We thank all of those who have reached out and contributed their memorabilia and recollections of the good times at Saginaw to build what you can enjoy herein.
Always imitated…never duplicated….The Hawks and Doves (and their memories) will never die…..
