video – 18 years of Country Camp

The Country Camp Song

… years ago on a cold dark night
the Schlapkohls realized something wasn’t right.
Few were at the scene but they all did agree
to start a camp out in the country.

Country Camp, where children run free.
Country Camp, where I long to be.
No other camp will ever be
what Country Camp means to me.

Chicks, ducks and geese and a pond down low,
if you love animals, then it’s the place to go.
Darling the Pony, and Emerald the horse,
Herschel and Audrey, and Gatsby one more.

Country Camp, where children run free.
Country Camp, where I long to be.
No other camp will ever be
what Country Camp means to me.

From these strange Iowa fields magic does arise,
listen to our guests, for they are often wise.
Come, walk with me! Or stroll in Troll Field,
the magic of our camp shall never be revealed.

Country Camp, where children run free.
Country Camp, where I long to be.
No other camp will ever be
what Country Camp means to me.
