A Summer Camp for Adults
Purpose: To provide a weeklong fun-filled summer adventure for adults with opportunities to form new and lasting friendships and to provide an environment which encourages personal growth, creativity and spiritual enrichment.
Eligibility: Any adult 21 or over. Our community is comprised of singles and couples. While we are affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist religion, a camper need not be a UU member to attend but should agree with our 7 principles. Saug-for-All is a member of the Council of Unitarian Universalist Camps and Conferences.
Where: We are exploring new places. This summer we’re going to return to Oscoda, MI to a wooded camp on a large lake in the YMCA camp called Nissokone. We’ll be 5 minutes away from beautiful beaches on Lake Huron (Oscoda Beach Park and Three Mile Beach Park). We’ll be able to tent camp anywhere on the camp premises and enjoy many new activities here, including horseback riding and sailing. In 2016 we'll be going to Dekoven Center in Racine, WI.
Cabins mostly house four campers (two per room). Each cabin has a shared bath with shower. They have double beds available for couples. Interactive map showing cabins

History: Saug-for-All was founded in 1999 by Joan and Jon Lager. Jon and Joan had both attended AMUUSE singles camps and wanted to continue their wonderful camp experience by creating a camp for all adults whether single or married. Sadly, Jon passed away in the spring of 2002 but Jon’s values, spirit and love live on in our camp community.
