Five Favorites: Camp Songs

Five Favorites

Why yes, it is past my bedtime. I think I’ll troll YouTube for videos of my favorite camp songs! And no, none of these videos feature me — I pay good money to suppress the ones involving me leading songs. 🙂


The Penguin Song. I have memories of standing outside Marianne’s in college singing this with my Bible study.


The Banana Slug Song. I’m a proud UCSC alum (our mascot is the fighting banana slug) and I’ve actually kissed one. (I was a Girl Scout camp counselor, OK?)


Every Move I Make. I originally learned this in Intervarsity and sang it a bunch while helping with VBS and at church camp.


Pharaoh, Pharaoh. Best camp song ever! I sang this almost 25 years ago at church camp and have taught it at various camps, VBS, and in First Communion instruction. (Our First Communion classes love it.)


Baby Shark. I sang a slightly different version of this one but I love watching these boys making fools of themselves. 😉

Go love up Christy (who is guest-hosting this week) and the others.
