Camp Songs for Kids

Parashar Joshi
Songs are an inseparable part of kids' camps. In any case, what's a campfire without song and dance? So, on that note, here are some campfire songs for kids.
When one pictures a kids summer camp, they mostly imagine a group of children gathered around a bonfire on a starlit night; singing, clapping, dancing, and having a great time. Camp songs are a dime a dozen.
From the ever-popular Boy Scout track Boom Chicka Boom to the legendary Kenny Rogers' country number The Gambler, there is a huge pool of songs to choose from. The best thing is that it doesn't really matter what you sing, as long as it is in sync with the mood of the evening, and has all others joining in and having a good time.
At times, you also witness the live making of some hilarious original compositions and even some funny remixes. Here are some enjoyable camp songs for children, which may be enjoyed by grown ups too.
