3-on-3….Best Ever!

Twenty-One, Taps, and H.O.R.S.E. were all regular parts of the free-time recreation buffet on Hill Court.  But 3-on-3 was the lynch pin of all of those “pick-up” games and true bragging rights were at stake. It was announced this week that they are adding 3-on-3 Basketball to the Olympics in 2020.  Which prompted old, nostalgic minds who edit this website to think, who were the … Continue reading 3-on-3….Best Ever!

Saginaw Supes Walk-Up Reunion-Version II

For the second time Hank “Zeus II” Aberman organized a casual Saturday afternoon get together for Saginaw Alums at the Waterfront Marriott in the Inner Harbor of Baltimore.  About 20 Supes from the 1950’s through 1970’s got together with old friends for lunch and reminiscence and a whole bunch of needling.

Brother and Sister

All of us know Camp Saginaw was a family affair.  Parents emptied their households each summer to take those long awaited vacations or just to spend adult time with each other. For many of those parents they were sending us to a place they knew well from their youth.  The multi-generational connections at Saginaw run deep.

Kodak Moments 1970s

The 1970s was a period of transition at Saginaw as the moors of the society at large were being challenged by the youth across America.  Many believed we had stepped into “The Age of Aquarius” and there was no stopping the introduction of long hair, torn jeans, and recreational substances that would influence the camp experience during this decade of change. It was also a … Continue reading Kodak Moments 1970s

Saginaw Alumni Reunion 2011

The three-year cycle for an on-campus Saginaw Alumni Reunion was renewed on September 23, 2011 under the capable direction of Brian Greene and a few valued co-conspirators.  It would be a no holds barred three-day celebration of all the generations of Saginaw Alumni with all the fixins.

Pyramid Power

There were always many mystical forces at work at Saginaw and in collecting images of the late 1960’s and early 1970’s there seemed to be a synergy around human pyramids. They came in all shapes and sizes-campers, waiters, and counselors.  The common denominator seems to be that they all evoked similar facial expressions….a mix of looks replete with giggles and trepidation.         … Continue reading Pyramid Power
