Golden Beaver Hits in Middle Camp

11745952_10153388986771210_7937061497180200381_nMiddle Campers really brought their A-game to the Golden Beaver Challenge today. In fact, the Beaver himself really captured it well when he said that it was the most exciting, most spirited challenge in recent Beaver Camp memory. The challenge was for Middle Campers to create their own lyrics to a song celebrating their favorite summer experiences and their affection for Beaver Summer Camp. Some groups adapted popular hit songs. Others wrote original song lyrics and created their own melodies. Campers were passionate, they were harmonized, and they were proud of their group and of their beloved camp. Check out the video of the entire event and and read the lyrics, below, from the Gold, Silver, and Bronze-winning performances.

Mariners Golden Beaver Challenge Song – “Sail With Me”

(to the tune of “Stay With Me” by Sam Smith)

Yes it’s true Mariners sail from land to land

But we still have fun don’t misunderstand

Swimming and building castles on the sand

Lying out in the deck getting nice and tan

Oh won’t you sail with me

Cause there’s so much to see

Let’s go explore the seven seas

Oh won’t you sail with me

We are brave, strong, and loyal too

We are all best friends and those bonds are true

The Mariners are totally the best crew

So come along with us is what you should do

Oh won’t you sail with me

Cause there’s so much to see

Let’s go explore the seven seas

Oh won’t you sail with me

Row, row, row, row, row (x2)

Oh won’t you sail with me

Cause there’s so much to see

Let’s go explore the seven seas

Oh won’t you sail with me?

Buccaneers Golden Beaver Challenge Song – “Buccaneers”

(to the tune of “Barbara Ann” by the Beach Boys)

Bu-bu-bu, bu-buccaneers

Bu-bu-bu, bu-buccaneers

Buccaneers, at Beaver (x3)

Buccaneers, we’re swimming and a running

Playin’ and a-laughin’

Buccaneers bu-bu, bu-buccaneers

Went to Beaver Camp, lookin’ for some fun

Joined Buccaneers, knew they were the one

Buccaneers bu-bu, bu-buccaneers

We’re drawin’ and a-climbin’

Singin’ and a-dancin’

Buccaneers bu-bu, bu-buccaneers

Tried lower camp

Tried upper camp

Tried senior camp

MIDDLE CAMP WAS THE ONE!

Buccaneers bu-bu, bu-buccaneers

Buccaneers bu-bu, bu-buccaneers

Buccaneers, we’re swimming and a running

Playin’ and a-laughin’

Buccaneers bu-bu, bu-buccaneers

Buccaneers bu-bu, bu-buccaneers (x5)

Buccaneers, at Beaver, Buccaneers

Buccaneers, we’re so much better,

Yeah we’re so much better than a deer

Bu-bu-bu bu-Buccaneers!

The Vikings Golden Beaver Challenge Song – “The Viking Hat” 

(to the tune of “Princess Pat”)

The Viking hat

Went on my head

It liked to sit

Next to my bed

It sailed across

The seven seas

And then it came

To Beav-er-yee!

This viking hat

Liked to play

It loved to climb

A ways away

The hat had fun

And so will you

It’s all thanks to

the GBC-aroo!

A GBC-aroo!
Now what is that?

It’s something made,

By Sue and Nat!

It’s bronze and gold

And silver too

That’s why it’s called

The GBC-aroo!

Yeah, yeah, yeah

That’s the Viking Way!
