Special camp visitors this summer (pictured below): In the early 1950s, Leonard Baruch and Bertrand Sandweiss ran Camp Pet-O-Se-Ga as a Jewish children's summer camp. Hundreds of children and their families carried with them for generations the fond memories of time spent horseback riding, swimming, fishing and playing sports at the summer camp on the shores of Pickerel Lake.
Leonard Baruch (right) and his son, Murray, visited the camp this summer and stopped for a photo opp and reminiscing at the Alanson campground that is now owned and operated by Emmet County. To read more about the Camp's history, click here.
