Songs

Camp Songs are an important tradition at Camp Ondessonk.  Here are just a couple that have passed on through the years.

Camp O Song
Oh we are the campers of Ondessonk, you hear so much about
People stop and stare at us whenever we go out
We’re not a bit stuck up about the clever things we do
Most everybody likes us and we hope you like us too!
OH!
As we go marching, and the band begins to P-L-A-Y
You’ll hear us shouting, the campers of Ondessonk are on their way-ay-ay

Have you ever seen a penguin company?
Take a look at me, a penguin you will see.

Birds in the Wilderness (sung when we wait for those who lost something to sing for its return)

Here We Sit
Here we sit like birds in the wilderness
Birds in the wilderness
Birds in the wilderness
Here we sit like birds in the wilderness
Waiting for a song
Waiting for a song
Waiting for a song
(Repeat).
