Down The Road A Piece    

“Down the road a piece in the middle of the woods,
there’s a Youth Camp, Batawagama.
Down at Indian Lake there’s a camp that takes the cake.
It’s the Youth Camp, Batawagama.
Well, if you want to swim or sing a song,
here’s your second home just as sure as you’re born.
So hail (hail), hail (hail), the gang’s all here,
At the Youth Camp, Batawagama.
Oh B-A-T-A-W-A-G-A-M-A!”

The songs of Camp Batawagama are very special to each and every camper and staff that attended Camp Batawagama. Some songs have changed over the years but there are those that will always be a part of Camp Batawagama. I hope to eventually link the lyrics, down the road a piece, so you can read them…just in case you forgot some of them. Here is a list of some of them…go ahead…and sing along.
