NEW SONG – CAMPING MY ASS OFF

 

I’m still processing all the profound magic that was Camp – Good Life Project 2017.
430+ amazing humans from around the globe, who travel in like pilgrims to romp around like children. I’ve felt increasingly blessed to call whatever I do there my “job” for the weekend.

I wrote this zany theme song on a flight out to California last month. The goal is to find a way to include every type of person who comes to camp. The music vibe is (of course) 1980’s Meatballs era. Fortunately, it all came together really quickly. Lyrics are below.

If I have any problem with how it turned out, it’s that the hook burrows deep in your brain and will terrorize you (as it did our 3 kids, who haven’t stopped singing it). 🙂 I know I’ll get a call soon from Leon’s kindergarten teacher, that he’s been “cammmmping his ass off!”.

So much love and joy goes into creating the Camp experience. I am deeply inspired by the partnership and vision of Jonathan + Stephanie Fields, my heroes on the Experience Design tip. They’ve granted me, and all of our staff full permission to Glow In The Dark, and if there’s anything I endeavor to pay forward to our guests, it’s THAT.

Download it, crank it, terrorize your own children with it. All my love,

CAMPING MY ASS OFF – CAMP GLP 2017

 

Hey baby here’s your postcard—I bought it at the airport
Just wanted to say Thank You for holding down the fort
OK honestly, I’m writing so I look preoccupied
Cuz everyone here hugs like some weird kind of sport

Maintaining my No Hug Zone
But it feels like something’s happening
It’s getting in my bones (Now I’m)

Camping my ass off
I’m camping my ass off 
Camping my ass off
I’m camping my ass off
There’s no other way I can say it
So this will have to convey it:
CAMPING! MY! ASS! OFF!

Hey kids, it’s Mom. Did you leave the porchlight on?
Sorry I missed your first week back at school
OK honestly, I’m not… Cuz me and Summer, we’re still hot
And I’d rather make art than buy supplies, or drive your carpool

Your Mommy has found her zone
And I don’t care how it happened
But it’s deep down in my bones (And I’m)

Camping my ass off
I’m camping my ass off
Camping my ass off
I’m camping my ass off
There’s no other way I can say it
So this will have to convey it:
CAMPING! MY! ASS! OFF!

Hello, team? Richard here. Is our merger in the clear?
Our clients’ needs have all been top of mind.
By that, I mean our bunk is launching a SICK APP!
So take this as my notice, Dicky OUT! Time for Snacks!

You’ve entered Bob’s Bearhug Zone
All the people of the planet
If you ask when I come home, I’ll be

CHORUS, OUT

    1. Yeah kinda sums it up, but at the same time doesn’t come close. No other way to say it, so this will have to convey it. Love you KW, you’re such a monster part of my camp experience, and my life.

  1. I didn’t catch all of the lyrics at camp – they’re really good! You should embed the video on this page, too (presuming there is one).
