Camp Silly Songs!

While camp is a great place to learn and grow, it is also a great place to just be silly! One of the many silly things we do at camp is singing silly songs. Here at Wildwood, it is a tradition to begin each mealtime with a song. We also sing at campfires, while we hike, while we work, and really whenever we get the chance! We’ve reached out to some of the Wildwood community about what their favorite silly camp songs are, and here is what they said:

“Topnotcher all the way! It just keeps going and going…the build-up is so great.”
Livy P – Camp alumna & Current staffer

“Der Orchestra! It gets everyone involved without being a typical repeat-after-me song.”
Kyle Branin – Teen Program Coordinator

“Pizza Man or Ratlan Bog because they’re the best.”
Jenn H – Staff alumna

“There can be only one song!!” (Pizza Man)
Matt R – Staff alumnus

“It’s a beach party, because of yelling!”
Sarah M – Staff alumna

“Little Red Wagon”
Bethany W – Staff alumna

“Ratlan Bog, Sharp Toothed Buzzards was always a favorite, and Baby Shark is clearly going to be massive this year. All three are energetic and inclusive.”
Sam B – Staff alumnus

“Oh I have way too many songs, I think the Princess Pat or the Elephant Song are some of my favorites.”
Becky Gilles – Camp Director
