Camp Song

Camp Song

Chorus as introduction – slow introduction and then getting fast leading into the first verse:

Chorus/Intro:
I am here with you, you are here with me,
and we have come to celebrate who we’re meant to be.
We listen to the past to make future harmony,
this time that we’re together here,
In Creative Arts at Keene.

Verse 1:
Dawning is a new day,
where we become one.
Work and play together,
‘neath the summer sun.

Hands around the circle,
the game now has begun.
Music, art and charity,
show us how we’ve won.

Chorus:
I am here with you, you are here with me,
and we have come to celebrate who we’re meant to be.
We listen to the past to make future harmony.
This time that we’re together here,
in Creative Arts at Keene.

Verse 2:
Each path that we travel,
takes us in different ways.
Throughout the year we search,
for warmer, kinder days.

Then one day we feel it,
the warmth of summer rays.
And each one knows it’s time,
to shine with fire’s blaze.

Chorus/Intro:
I am here with you, you are here with me,
and we have come to celebrate who we’re meant to be.
We listen to the past to make future harmony.
This time that we’re together here,
in Creative Arts at Keene.

(RAP – Kids write this and should be rewritten every year)
C.A.K.E. – not the kind that you eat
but the kind where you find
the friends you’ve yet to meet
it’s where you go to dance and sing
take photos, paint and do your own thing
smile, perform, you know how
don’t forget to take a bow.

Chorus/Intro:
I am here with you, you are here with me,
and we have come to celebrate who we’re meant to be.
We listen to the past to make future harmony.
This time that we’re together here,
in Creative Arts at Keene.

(Repeat Chorus – acapella once and repeat again with music)
