These camp songs are some of our personal favorites that we've tested over time - others are new favorites that have been submitted that we tried at camp this summer.

Note: if you don't know the beat or tune, make it up... As long as it songs good to you, it's perfect! We think that the way you sing your camp songs creates your camp's identity. If you have ever visited another camp, you'll notice right away that all of their songs sound "funny..."

Boom Chick-a Boom


I said a boom chick-a boom

Opera Style
Janitor Style (broom sweep a broom, sweep-a mop-a)
Underwater style
Etc.

Children of the Lord

Lord said to Noah

“There’s gonna be a floody, floody”
Lord said to Noah
“There’s gonna be a floody, floody"
Get those children (Clap)
Out of the muddy, muddy
Children of the Lord
Chorus

Noah, he built him
He built him an arky, arky
Made it out of Hickory barky, barky

Chorus

The animals they came on
They came on by two-sies, two-sies
Elephants and kangaroo-sies –oosies


Chorus

It rained and poured for
Forty day-sies, day-sies
Nearly drove those animals
Crazy, crazy

Chorus

The sun came out and
Dried up the landy, landy
Everything was fine
And dandy, dandy

Chorus

The animals they came out
They came out by
Three-sies, three-sies
Must have been those
Birds and bee-sies, bee-sies

Chorus

This is the end of
The end of our story, story
Everything was,
Honky dorey, dorey


YOUR MAMA DON’T WEAR NO SOCKS (a classic Boy Scouts Camp Song)


Leader: Your mama don't wear no socks!
Campers: A ding dong!!
Leader: I saw 'em when she took 'em off!
Campers: A ding dong!!
Leader: She threw them in the tree!
Campers: A ding dong!!
Leader: Now the dog refuses to pee!
Campers: A ding dong, dong, dong, dong. A ding dong, dong, dong, dong - A DING DONG!


(Other Verses)
She put them in the bed, now dad sleeps in the shed
She put them in the fridge, now we all live under a bridge
She threw them in the sky, now Superman refuses to fly
She threw them in the air, now Superman is on medicare
She threw them over the fence, haven't seen the neighbor since



THREE SHARP TOOTH BUZZARDS


3 (hold up 3 fingers) sharp tooth (fingers curled up by mouth as teeth) buzzards (hunch shoulders, look mean)
Sitting on a dead tree (arms out as branches, head lolled to one side)
Oh, LOOK (shade eyes with hand), One has flown A-way (point to the distance)
What A Shame (one hand at forehead in a dramatic gesture)
Whay… (like a baby)
2 sharp tooth buzzards (same actions as above, but hold up 2 fingers)...
1 sharp tooth buzzard (same actions as above but hold up 1 finger)...
No sharp tooth buzzards (same actions, but shake finger "no" at "No")...

Oh, Look (shade eyes with hand), One has RE-turned (beckoning motion)
Let us RE-Joice (arms up in joy)!
Yeah!!!
Repeat until are have returned...
