Did any forumers attend summer camp in their youth? Where did you go and when, and was it a fun experience?
Me? Camp Sancta Maria (Gaylord)in the late '40s.. Good time(well,other than a few demerits for putting 50 salamanders in the counselor's bunk one night) and the camp is still going strong today.

I went to Detroit Boat Club Camp in maybe 1980-1982? When I was 6-9 (I am 32 now).
I went to a camp called Willoway, I do not remember where it was, someplace in the OC, when I was around that age as well.
I went to Black River Horseback camp in 4th-8th grade (in Lexington).
My brothers went to Camp Tamackwa (sp?) and also, we went to Camp Michigania as a famliy for several years. Good times.

Camp Tanuga in Kalkaska. Wanted to go to Interlochen, my mom said she wasn't paying for that. So I sent one of my kids instead, living vicariously!

Used to go to the CYO camp up by Port Sanalac back in the late 60's early 70's. The boys camp what just south of Port Sanalac and the girls camp just north.

I went to the CYO girls camp up by Port Sanalac in 1970, 71, and 72. I was one of the older campers by the time I started there. Missed the juniors entirely.

Gordonwood Episcopal camp (formerly Camp Holiday), Ortonville, late '80s- early '90s. Lots of good memories.

Rsa-- I went on the tour of the City of Milwaukee after it was moved to Manistee. It was a Grand Trunk Western boat, then bought by the State of Michigan and moved to Frankfort in 1979, serving the Michigan Interstate ferries.

Funny, many of those camps are where I have been spending my weekends with Indian Guides/ Indian Princesses in recent years.

Oldest daughter is off for a week at some camp up north this summer...can't remember the name. I do remember that its priced right and they haven't banned God from camp yet.
