Girl's Camp

I am the assistant girls camp director, so I get to go to girls camp at the end of July. I always loved girls camp when I went as a Young Woman, so I'm VERY excited to go this year. Obviously it won't be the same, but it still will be tons of fun. I've been trying to think of all the fun things we did at girls camp, and at girl scout camp when I went, and I remember I always loved the fun camp songs we would sing. I can't remember all the words to most of them because, let's face it, I only sang them at camp and that was quite a while ago. I googled camp songs, and found a couple, including one of my favorites. It's called Barges, and I could only remember one line from the chorus "Barges, I would like to sail with you, I would like to sail the ocean blue...Barges....hmmm hmmmm hmmmmm" So I found it on Youtube! yay for internet.

I just hope the girls in my ward will indulge me by singing along. I'm thinking of dragging my guitar out of storage and practicing up so I can play while I sing. We'll see how that goes. I haven't gotten it out yet because my left hand has these wonderful long fingernails on it that I'm very proud of, and I can't quite bring myself to cut them off just yet.

Anyway, here's the barges song. It's so pretty, and it's fun to sing in a round
