Camp Songs

At Camp Lincoln, our campers and staff learn to recognize the value of our traditions. Singing, without a doubt, is one of our most apparent traditions. Before and after meals, at campfires, and when exploring the many paths of camp, campers and counselors can be heard singing camp songs to show their camp pride and spirit! Through the years, there have been many songs introduced to Lincoln, but here are 3 of our favorites:

The Camp Lincoln Song
“Cheer for Camp Lincoln, through thick and thin
Lincoln’s the place where good times begin, Rah Rah Rah
Of all the rest boys, Lincoln’s the best boys,
so for our camp, let’s cheer: RAH RAH!” (Repeated twice)

Johnny Appleseed
“Oh, the Lord is good to me,
And so I thank the Lord,
For giving me the things I need:
The sun, and the rain, and the apple seed,
The Lord is good to me, amen.”

The Banana Song
Peel bananas, peel peel bananas.
Peel bananas, peel peel bananas.
Slice bananas, slice slice bananas.
Slice bananas, slice slice bananas.
Eat bananas, eat eat bananas.
Eat bananas, eat eat bananas.
GO BANANAS! GO GO BANANAS!
GO BANANAS! GO GO BANANAS!

It was an extremely positive experience. He has not stopped talking about it since I met him at the airport (I am not exaggerating!)
