Do you remember these songs?. The song I remember most of
all is "Rise and Shine". Of course, the songs we learned during the boys
session were a little different than the grils camps. Another one I remember
was "The Ants Come Marching ". I don't think we ever sang it at campfire, but
we sure did on our overnight hikes. Those hills.....we walked up.... I wish
they were still there to visit again. Be sure to read the closing campfire song
at the bottom of the page.
If you remember, these were the closing songs sang in the
standing circle around the campfire with linked arms.
The call of the fire comes to us through the shadows
That follows the close of the day. Its flames bring us peace and the
calmness of spirit That drives all our troubles away. We are thankful
for days and the joy that they bring us An night and the rest that it
brings. May we go on believing in this joy we're receiving Just now
round the fire as we sing.
Far above the lakes blue waters..............
Remember the times you've had here Remember when your
away. Remember the friends you've made here and don't forget to come back
someday. Remember the evening campfires, the sparkling waters too For
you folks belong to Spirit Lake And Spirit Lake belongs to you.
