Here at Takodah, we sing. A. LOT! The end of every meal erupts in a party with singing and dancing. We promise you’ll come to love it as much as we do.

You’ll learn all our songs at camp. If you want a head-start on some of our favorite songs, you can hit play below and sing along with the lyrics.


All Hail Takodah

All hail Takodah
All hail Takodah
T-A-K-O-D-A-H
Takodah all hail
All hail Hadokat
All hail Hadokat
H-A-D-O-K-A-T
Hadokat all hail


I Want To Stay At Camp Takodah

I want to stay at Camp Takodah
In the dear old camp I know
Where the rain comes pourin’
Into where I’m snorin’
And the bugle toots hello (toot-toot)
I want to sleep on the top bunk
Where I won’t get stepped on so (squish!)
And wear fur-lined pajamas
In the dear old camp I know


Smile

Smile, smile let me see your smile
That great Takodah smile
It will warm the cockles of your heart
And make your life worth while
When your sad and feeling lonely
Greet your neighbor with a smile
So, smile, smile let me see your smile
That great Takodah smile
When anything goes wrong keep smiling
When anything goes wrong just grin
Throw back your shoulders, stick out your chin
As long as you are smiling, you are bound to win
When anything goes wrong keep smiling
Never let your troubles let you down, down, down
Everything will be alright
And the whole world will be bright
If you smile, smile, smile


Eager Beaver

I’m an eager beaver camper
An eager beaver (boy/girl) am I
I brush my teeth up every night
I shine my shoes up very bright
Oh, I am an eager beaver (boy/girl)
E-A-G-E-R B-E-A-V-E-R
Eager beaver sis-boom-bah
Yea rah
I am beaver
You are beaver
We are beavers all
And when we get together
We do our beaver call
Ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, ma
Ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, ma HEY!
Ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, ma
Ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, ma HEY!
