Special Events

At Saginaw, some of our most fun days are our Special Schedule days. These often start with a late wake-up and will include Big/Little day (this is when an older camper is paired with a younger camper and they spend time together), Water Carnivals, Photo and Video Day, and parent Visiting Days.

Two spectacular Saginaw events are College Days and Color War. These two events bring our campers together in spirited competition.

College Days is a 2 1/2 day competition that opens with a Saginaw favorite - the rope burn. Credits are accumulated throughout the competition, and each college is run by counselor captains called Deans and Professors. The final Graduation Ceremony includes a cheer from the Freshmen (Juniors), a pennant from the Sophomores (Inters), and a mascot from the Seniors (Seniors).

Without a doubt, there is no activity more anticipated than Color War! This 4 day event held in the second half of the summer divides the camp into two teams representing our camp colors of Red and Blue. The beginning of Color War is a surprise (known as the “Break”) and so are the themes. The competition stresses good sportsmanship as the campers participate in a wide range of activities including sports, swimming, and dance competitions. The event culminates with Songfest and the revealing of the Color War murals.
