Sing-Along Songs for our Campgrounds In NY!

At our Adirondack campgrounds in NY, sing-alongs are part of the fun! Your vacation won’t be complete until you sit around a roaring campfire, enjoying the company of friends and family, roasting marshmallows, and singing old fashioned campground songs! (Don’t forget to check for some great Adirondack camping recipes and some great camping games for kids of all ages!)

No matter which campgrounds in New York state you choose, you’ll discover what getting away from it all really means! Adirondack camping and Adirondack RV parks offer an unforgettable experience, no matter where you go. Contact us for more information!

Take these lyrics with you and make some unforgettable memories:

Campfire Pokey

You put your marshmallow in
You take your marshmallow out
You put your marshmallow in and you shake it all about
You do the campfire pokey, and you turn yourself about
And that’s what it’s all about, hey!

(Substitute “marshmallow” with hot dog, potato, apple, popcorn, and anything else that you can roast over the campfire.)

At the end, use the phrase:

You put your whole dinner in
You take your whole dinner out
You put your whole dinner in, and you shake it all about
You do the campfire pokey, and you turn yourself abou
And that’s what its all about, yum, yum!

Home on the Range

Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam,

Where the deer and the antelope play,
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the sky is not cloudy or grey.

REFRAIN
Home, home on the range!
Where the deer and the anteloupe play,
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the sky is not cloudy or grey.

Oh, give me a gale in some southern Southern vale,
Where the stream of life joyfully flows,
On the banks of the river, where seldom if ever,
Any poisonous herb-i-age grows.

Refrain

Oh, give me a land where the bright diamond sands
Lie awash in the glittering stream,
Where days glide along in pleasure and song,
And afternoons pass as a dream.

Refrain
Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam,
Where the deer and the antelope play,
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the sky is not cloudy or grey.

REFRAIN
Home, home on the range!
Where the deer and the anteloupe play,
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the sky is not cloudy or grey.

Oh, give me a gale in some southern Southern vale,
Where the stream of life joyfully flows,
On the banks of the river, where seldom if ever,
Any poisonous herb-i-age grows.

Refrain

Oh, give me a land where the bright diamond sands
Lie awash in the glittering stream,
Where days glide along in pleasure and song,
And afternoons pass as a dream.
Refrain

Be Kind To Your Web-footed Friends
[to the tune of “Stars and Stripes”]

Be kind to your web-footed friends
For that duck may be somebody’s mother,
She lives on the edge of a swamp
Where the weather is always damp.

You may think that this is the end,
Well it is but to prove that you’re all liars,
We’re going to sing it again,
But only this time we will sing a little higher.
