Click on the buttons above to either download the Mondamin Songbook or to connect with a Spotify playlist which includes every song in the book. And the songbook includes the chords!

The songbook is a fun journey through time, with songs like “Mountain Dew” and “One Tin Soldier” which have been in the songbook since the dawn of time, to the era of James Taylor, Johnny Cash, John Prine, and John Denver, to the most recent additions from the likes of The Allman Brothers and Tom Petty.

Parents sometimes ask, “do the boys actually sing?” And the answer is a definite yes. At camp, when the counselors sing, the boys want to sing, and all worries about “do I look cool?” or “how do I sound?” just disappear. During the summer, you will find singing in our assemblies, at campfire, and even sometimes in the dining hall - with the last always impromptu depending on the boys’ moods!

Singing sometimes leads to boys learning to play a chord on a counselor’s guitar and we’ve had several assembly counselor song leaders who first learned to play that way.

So, grab a songbook, use Spotify to get the tune,and sing along!

About Robert Danos

I first came to Mondamin from South Louisiana as a camper in 1979 and spent the next 9 summers here all the way through our Counselor In Training program. While attending Tulane University, I was a counselor each summer and have now been on the year-round staff for over 30 years. Before joining the year-round staff, I spent time both in teaching and child psychology. .

My wife, Susan, spent eight years on staff at our sister camp, Green Cove, and we have two girls and a boy all of whom have attended Green Cove and Mondamin, respectively.
