Secret Sisters
Each day we picked a popsicle stick with a friend’s name on it. During the day, we would watch that individual and take note of the good things they were saying and doing. That night we would gather together and share what we learned about our secret sister. Here are some of the things that others noticed about me.

2011 YW Camp Song
I will Anchor my Soul in Christ
music & lyrics by: Roger & Melanie Hoffman
Winds blow around me. Waves rush to drown me. I will anchor my soul in Christ, Anchor my soul in Christ. Mists rise to blind me. He'll reach to find me. I will anchor my soul in Christ, Anchor my soul in Christ. At times it takes my breath away, The fierceness of the sea. But with joy I take my journey For the Master sails with me. He'll stay beside me. His voice will guide me. I will anchor my soul in Christ forever, Anchor my soul in Christ.

We used our camp theme to design our banner. Each YW designed her own clothespin doll to attach to the banner.

Here’s where we stayed!!

Autographs

Camp Bennion Creek is situated in the beautiful Manti-La Sal forest of the Wasatch Mountain range. The camp encompasses 97 acres at an elevation of approximately 7,000 feet, and is accessable by a five mile dirt road that branches off of Highway 6 in Spanish Fork canyon. Encouraging the growth of established cottonwood trees is the gentle flowing Bennion Creek which winds through the property and has been managed to provide the camp with it''s own pond for swimming, canoeing, and fishing.

Abide with me; ‘Tis Eventide
Abide with me; ‘tis eventide. The day is past and gone; The shadows of the evening fall; The night is coming on. Within my heart a welcome guest, within my home abide. O Savior, stay this night with me; Behold ‘tis eventide. O Savior, stay this night with me; Behold ‘tis eventide. Abide with me; ‘tis eventide. They walk today with me Has made my heart within me burn, As I communed with thee. Thy earnest words have filled my soul And kept me near thy side. O Savior, stay this night with me; Behold, ‘tis eventide. O Savior, stay this night with me; Behold ‘tis eventide. Abide with me; ‘tis eventide, And lone will be the night If I cannot commune with thee Nor find in thee my light. The darkness of the world, I fear, would in my home abide. O Savior, stay this night with me; Behold, ‘tis eventide. O Savior, stay this night with me; Behold, ‘tis eventide.

Barges
Chorus: Barges, I would like to go with you. I would like to sail the ocean blue. Barges, are there treasures in your hold? Do you fight with pirates brave and bold? Verse 1 Out of my window, looking in the night I can see the barges flickering light. Silently flows the river to the sea As the barges do go silently. [chorus] Verse 2 Out of my window, looking in the night I can see the barges flickering light. Starboards shining green and port is glowing red, I can see the barges far ahead. [chorus] Verse 3 Out of my window, looking in the night I can see the barges flickering light. Anchors start to pull and engines start to roar As the barges pull away from shore. [chorus] Verse4 Out of my window, looking in the night I can see the barges flickering light. Stars are brightly lighting up the sky As the barges seem to skip right by. [chorus]

Be Strong
When the world and its temptations seem to call you by name, Be strong; Be strong. When they question ev’ry thing you put your faith in everyday, Be strong; Be strong. And when your trial seem like they’re too hard to bear Remember someone else stands by you who’s already been there. Chorus Be strong and of good courage! Be not afraid. Stand firm in the faith. For the Lord will be with us wherever we go. Be His. Be one. Be strong. When the world tries to convince you to make the wrong choice Be strong; Be strong. If in the noise that’s all around you can’t hear the spirit’s voice Be strong. Be strong. And when you stand for something right and stand alone Remember someone else stands by you in our heavenly home.

FRIEND SONG
Make new friends, but keep the old One is silver and the other‘s gold A circle is round, it has no ends That‘s how long I want to be your friend Make new friends, but keep the old One is silver and the other‘s gold

GRANDFATHER'S CLOCK
My grandfather's clock was too large for the shelf, So it stood ninety years on the floor. It was taller by half than the old man himself, But it weighed not a penny's weight more, It was bought on the morn of the day that he was born And was always his treasure and pride. But it stopped, short, never to go again When the old man died. Chorus: Ninety years without slumbering, Tick tock, tick tock. His life seconds numbering, Tick tock, tick tock. It stopped, short, never to go again When the old man died. In watching its pendulum swing to and fro, Many hours had he spent when a boy. And in childhood and manhood the clock Seemed to know and to share both his grief and his joy. For it struck twenty four when he entered in the door With a blooming and beautiful bride But it stopped, short, never to go again When the old man died. Chorus My grandfather said that for those he could hire Not a servant so faithful he found. For it wasted no time and had but one desire, At the close of each week to be wound, And it kept in its place, not a frown upon its face. And its hands never hung by its side. But it stopped, short, never to go again When the old man died. Chorus It rang an alarm in the dead of the night, An alarm that for years had been dumb. And we knew that his spirit was pluming for flight, That his hour for departure had come. Still the clock kept the time, with a soft and muffled chime, As we silently stood by his side. But it stopped, short, never to go again When the old man died. Chorus

German Doctor
Who’s the famous doctor comes from Germany? Oono Gillespe, hear his piano plinka plinka plinka plink plinka plinka plinka plink plinka plinka plinka plink plinka plinka plink HEY! Hear his viola vio vio viola viola viola vio vio viola vio viola (repeat twice) HEY! hear his tuba umpa, umpa, umpapa umpapa umpapa umpa, umpa, umpapa umpa umpapa (repeat twice) HEY!

Hear his audience clapping HEY!

IRISH SONG
Verse 1 It seems like only yesterday I sailed from out of Cork A wanderer from Erin's Isle I landed in New York. There wasn't a soul to greet me here, a stranger on your shore But Irish luck was with me, and riches came galore. And now I'm goin' back again to dear old Erin's Isle. Me friends will meet me at the shore and greet me with a smile. Their faces sure I've almost forgot I've been so long away But me mother will introduce them all and this to me will say: [CHORUS] Verse 2 They'll have a party when I go home, they'll come from near and far. They'll line the road for miles and miles with Irish jauntin' cars. The spirits will flow and we'll be gay, we'll fill your hearts with joy The piper will play an Irish rill to greet the Yankee boy. They'll dance and sing the whole night long, such fun was never seen. The lads'll be decked in corduroy, the colleens wearing green. There'll be thousands there that I never saw I've been so long away, But me mother will introduce them all, and this to me will say.... [CHORUS]

It’s a camp world after all!
1. It’s a world of hiking, a world of tents, It’s a world of liking those outdoor scents And although there’s no boys, There are compensating joys It’s a camp world after all! It’s a world of blisters, a world of ticks, It’s a world of sisters, a world of tricks, See that snipe, straight ahead! - There’s a frog in my bed It’s a camp world after all! It’s a camp world, after all Sun, or damp world, it’s a ball It’s a camp world, heed the call Of the camping world 2. It’s a world of planning, a world of work; It’s a world of manning the chores; can’t shirk – By the time breakfast’s through, time for lunch, dinner, too– It’s a camp world after all. It’s a world of skills–some I haven’t got It’s a world of hills, boy, we walk a lot! Oh, some help we could use, got those sleeping bag blues, It’s a camp world after all. It’s the camp world, after all! Help! Won’t someone hear our call? Please! We just can’t do it all! At the camping world!

MORMON SUNDAY SCHOOL SONG
Chorus: Young folks, old folks, everybody come. Join the Mormon Sunday School and have a lot of fun! Kindly leave your chewing gum and candy at the door, And you’ll hear some Bible stories that you’ve never heard before. The young prophet, Nephi’s faith was strong. In the scriptures he did no wrong. According to Frieberg’s picture of him, He must have gone to a body-building gym! (Chorus) Good King Benjamin built a tower. Spoke to his people for many an hour. Thousands pitched their tents to see, It looked like a Boy Scout Jamboree! (Chorus) They had some trouble with Alma the Younger. For spiritual enlightenment he did hunger. An angel appeared in glorious rays, And he felt mighty dumb for a couple of days. (Chorus) The Jaredites left the Tower of Babel. They had two leaders who were great and able. Mahonri Moriancamer earned great fame, But I can’t remember his brother’s name! (Chorus) The Gadianton Robbers get the thanks, For robbing all the Nephite banks. They cracked every safe in the whole darn nation, ‘Cause they had the secret combination! (Chorus) Buy a Book of Mormon without delay. Just one buck is all you pay. I’ll tell you just what it can do… If it reformed Egyptian, it can reform you! (Chorus)

Peanut Butter and Jelly Song
I’m peanut butter and you are jelly and we’re so happy on our little piece of bread I remember the first time that I saw you, sitting in the cupboard with your other jelly friends Cause you’re so sweet and I am chunky You’re low fat, well I’m working on that Cause I’m peanut butter and you are jelly And we’re so happy on our little piece of bread

Oong Gau Wah
We’re from Nairobi and we are the best team We fight the Watusi, their seven feet tall. The cannibals may eat us, but they’ll never beat us, ‘cause we’re from Nairobi and we’re on the ball. Chorus Sing along, sing along, sing along, sing along Oong gau wah, oong gau wah, oong gau wah oong gau wah Oong gau wah, oong gau wah, oong gau wah wah. Oong gau wah, oong gau wah, oong gau wah, oong gau wah Oong gau wah, oong gau wah, oong gau wah wah. We took sixteen men from old Kilamanjarro But they didn’t have what it takes. We took all the losers out into the jungle And tied them up there for the snakes. Chorus We crossed over Kenya on into Zimbabwe Determined to beat any team that we met, In spite of their numbers, we took on the pygmies, And taught them a lesson they’ll not soon forget. Chorus

I like grape and strawberry But you’re raspberry and that’s my favorite kind Please forgive me for my stint with honey I looked on the label and not at what was inside Cause you’re so sweet and I am chunky You’re low fat, well I’m working on that Cause I’m peanut butter and you are jelly And we’re so happy on our little piece of bread I’m so glad that I discovered, you in the cupboard I hope you’re glad too From now on, we’ll be stuck together But what could be better than being stuck with you Cause you’re so sweet and I am chunky You’re low fat, well I’m working on that Cause I’m peanut butter and you are jelly And we’re so happy on our little piece of bread

Princess Pat
The princess Pat / lived in a tree. She sailed across / the seven seas. She sailed across / the channel too. And brought with her / a rig-a-bamboo. Chorus A rig-a-bamboo / now what is that? It’s something made / by the princess Pat. It’s red and gold / and a purple too. That’s why it’s called / a rig-a-bamboo. Now Captain Jack / had a mighty fine crew. They sailed across / the channel too. Their ship did sink / and so will you, If you don’t take/ a rig-a-bamboo. [Chorus] The group repeats after every slash and every line.

Rise And Shine
The Lord said to Noah, “There’s gonna be a floody floody.” Lord said to Noah, “There’s gonna be a floody floody. Get those animals out of the muddy muddy, Children of the Lord.” Chorus So rise and shine and give God the glory glory Rise and shine and give God the glory glory Rise and shine and give God the glory glory Children of the Lord. The Lord said to Noah, “You’d better build an arky arky.” Lord said to Noah, ”You’d better build an arky arky. Build it out of hickory barky barky, Children of the Lord.” [Chorus] The animals, they came on, they came on by twosies twosies. Animals, they came on, they came on by twosies, twosies. Elephants and kangaroosies, roosies, Children of the Lord. [Chorus] It rained, and poured, it rained for forty daysies, daysies. Rained and poured, it rained for forty daysies, daysies. Nearly drove those animals crazies, crazies, Children of the Lord. [Chorus] The sun came out and dried up the landy, landy. Sun came out and dried up the landy, landy. Everything was fine and dandy, dandy, Children of the Lord. [Chorus] The animals, they came off, they came off by threesies, threesies. Animals they came off, they came off by threesies, threesies.

White Coral Bells
White coral bells upon a slender stalk. Lillies of the valley deck my garden walk. Oh don’t you wish that you could hear them sing? That will happen only when the fairies sing. (This is a two part round. Sing it through 3 times each. The second part comes in after the first two lines.)

Tong, Tong, Tong, Tong Pakitong, Kitong Alimanggo sa dagat Masarap at mataba Mahirap Mahuli Pagkat I’toy nangangagat **This is a Philippino song that Sis. Waite learned on her mission. The language is Tagalog. The first two lines have no meaning. Alimango = crab. Sa dagat= in the sea. Masarap= delicious. At mataba= and fat. Mahirap= hard/difficult. Mahuli= to catch. Pagkat= because. I’toy nangangagat= it bites. (The a’s are pronounced like the o sound in the word hot, so like ahh).
