Do you remember the crazy songs you used to sing when you went to camp? Songs were as much a part of those summers as campfires and storytelling.
Now you can go back to those days with a new CD featuring more than 25 of your favorites.
A group of 4-H camp counselors has produced a CD of songs and skits to create a scholarship fund for children who cannot afford 4-H camp.
4-H, a program for all boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 19, is sponsored in Delaware by the Cooperative Extension Service of the University of Delaware and Delaware State University. Members pledge, "my head to clearer thinking, my heart to greater loyalty, my hands to larger service and my health to better living."
Former camp counselors, mostly college age and older, organized the CD project. The scholarship fund was named for a dedicated New Castle County 4-H volunteer, Ernst Zippe, who died in January 1996, and the recording is dedicated to his memory.
The entire CD was created and produced by 4-H counselors and by campers, who helped with the CD cover design, provided art and helped put the project together as a part of camp activities. Preserved on the recording are songs, such as "Do Your Ears Hang Low," "Boom-Chicka," "The Lollipop Song," "Princess Pat," "Down By The Banks," "Peanut Butter and Jelly" and many more.
The CDs and tapes are available at Rainbow Records in Newark, Newark Natural Foods Cooperative and the New Castle County Cooperative Extension Office.
