Click to report rating    11/26/10   5     5     5     5     5   I can honestly say that Camp Saginaw is the greatest place in the entire world. I've spent over half of my life at this place that brings you closer to people you would have never even met otherwise. Both the boys and girls I've grown up with continue to be my best friends and even though I am nearing my final summer, I know they will be my bestfriends for life. SAGINAWWWWW. 19363. it's literally the best thing in the whole world. I've learned the best life skills and the staff, facilities, activities, personal attention, and monetary value are to die for. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE send your kids here, I can honestly say that they'll thank you forever. My first summer as a seven year old I hated it. I was homesick and WAY to far away from home, but my parents told me it was best to go back and I can't thank them enough for making that decision for me. Once a dove, always a dove. RID: 34488

Click to report rating    8/13/08   5     5     5     5     5   alright. last year when i got back from camp i wrote the review that started with SAGINAW IS LIFE. well, i just got back, actually today, from camp. im completely torn apart. ive never been sadder to leave a place, to leave people, to leave my true home. the house i live in during the year doesnt feel right, and nothing feels okay. i feel like this is just a bad dream that i cant wake up from but in reality i have to understand that all i have to do is wait 10 lonely months to regather in the place where i belong. as you can see, i strongly recommend camp saginaw, for the summers of your life.

Click to report rating    4/26/08   5     5     5     5     5   hey, to all of you who are complaining about bee stings? let me know when you find a camp who doesnt have bees. no place is perfect, but here you will create memories that will last a lifetime. ive learned so much about myself at camp saginaw, and ive done things that i would have never done outside of this camp. it opens up so many new activities and everyone here alway smakes you feel good about yoruself and thats so special. my best friends were made here and they are the people who i know i can always turn to for whatever i need, always. if you are a parent, send your children here if they wanna make memories that last a lifetime as well as friendships. the wide range of activities gives you so many more experiences and memories to carry throughout your life. the people are great and so are the staff and you will never feel alone or lonely. this camp is my life and it always will be. acrop 08!!

Click to report rating    11/19/07   4     5     5     5     5   This year had been my second year and i loved it so much! The Acropolis makes all the difference, because it is so much more fun! I cant wait until next summer... Camp Saginaw is my life! I reccomend it highly for ages 13-16! When you are younger it is a bit harder on you, but I recommend it for kids 8-12, too, if they dont get homesick... CAMP SAGINAW IS THE GREATEST!!! RID: 17227

Click to report rating    11/16/07   3     4     4     2     2   Most of the kids had a great time but the counslers are treated as sub-human. Isrealis were treated much harder which is ironic since it is a Jewish camp. Everyone is under so much pressure its hard to enjoy the job and it turns into "kids pool, 11am kids upper field 12pm" because they are afraid to be a minuet late. Some children reported being "yelled at" by some counslers who said things to children that should never even be imagined. One child had their hair forcefully brushed against their will. These counslers were not reprimanded yet given privleges. Hopefully next year the staff (upper and lower) will have a major turn around. Facilites were ok. Only two bunks were nice, the other ones were gross with broken windows, the pool was closed all the time and the health center could have cared less about all things health. RID: 17118

Click to report rating    8/16/07   5     5     5     5     5   SAGINAW IS LIFE. this place has been my home for 5 summers. it is the best place to be, but the hardest to leave. i would sign up for 12 monthes there if it was possible. it is an amazing place that has made me who i am. i love it so much, and if you are trying to consider a camp for your kid, this one should definitly qualify. this will be the summer of their life and they will love it. there are so many experiances, great people, memories, and staff. the activites are awesome too. i have tried soo many new things that my life would have been different without. i love everybody there, even if i dont know them. we all share something in commen-the love for camp. i wouldnt be who i am without it and i there is not enough time for me to describe how much i love it. i keep intouch with a my friends and i love seeing them through the school year. i would never want to spend my summer anywhere but saginaw.
