Rhymes and Songs:

A-Camping We Will Go... - Sung to "The Farmer in the Dell"
A-camping we will go,
A-camping we will go,
Heigh-ho, off we go,
A-camping we will go.

First we pitch our tent
Then we chop our wood
We light our fire now
We cook our dinner now
Time to go to sleep

Camping Song - Sung to the tune of "Where is Thumbkin?"
Let's go camping
Let's go camping
Pack the tent
Pack the tent
We will all go hiking
We will all go swimming
We will have fun!
We will have fun!

Flannelboard: “Campfire Hokey Pokey”

You put your marshmallow in, you take your marshmallow out
You put your marshmallow in and you shake it all about
You do the campfire pokey and you turn yourself about,
That’s what it’s all about!
(Other verses include hotdog, potato, popcorn, etc.)

Flannelboard: “Five Little Kernels”
Five little kernels sizzling in the pot
All of a sudden, one went POP!

Action Song: “Cool Bear Hunt”By Dr. Jean Feldman from her Silly Songs CD
Fingerplay: “Here is the Camper”
Here is the camper (hold up finger)
Here is the tent (bend fingers of other hand like tent)
He crawls inside on a summer night (finger goes under)
Fireflies flicker in a friendly way (flicker your hands)
All is calm till the light of day (head on folded hands)

Did You Ever Go A-Camping - Sung to the tune of "Did You

Did you ever go a-camping
