Overview

Who could have foreseen the impact of opening a summer camp in southwestern Michigan? Certainly not Louis and Florence Greenberg way back in 1935. Today, nearly eighty years later, people from around the world consider their summers spent at Lake of the Woods and Greenwoods Camps the very best times of their lives. A Camp Story is the tale of a legacy left by an orphan. It's a story of boys and girls in bathing suits and bug spray as they sail about, sneak out, fall in love and find themselves, summer after summer. This is a poignant and hilarious account about the ultimate camp experience--how it touches so many people and how it continues to shape so many lives.
