Uncle Henry, Dear Aunt Dora
Here we are at Onteora
We can swim here, it's really nice
Too bad the lake is still filled with ice!

Our Camp Director, he's a "he man"
He's a real man, he's the key man
He's always with us, he'll never fail
But how come he wears an earring and pony tail!

The Program Director is David Seuss
From an institution, he just got loose
He treats the staff, really mean
That's why they placed crazy glue in his latrine!

Now there's Darkside, who has a Council Ring
He teaches native dancing and all those other things
He's kind of scary, he's kind of creepy
But we've heard he wears a tu tu in his teepee!

There's Rick Balla, he's quite the fella
He has a list which keeps us ________
If he really annoys us, well let him know
We'll get his clipboard up to Joe LaRotonda!

Our CIT's have this maniac
His name is Timmy and that's a fact
He works them hard, he charges rent
That's why they put poison ivy in his tent!

Our Camp Commissioners, they make us clean
But they get lost, going to the latrine
It really concerns us and everyone cares
Cause now we have nothing to feed the bears!

There's a Commissioner with just 9 fingers
Over breakfast, he never lingers
He works hard, he's also fast
Too bad he can't tell his diesel from his gas!

It's getting late now, we have to go
I think that its starting to snow
Just one more thing that's really scary
Ken, our cook is directly descended from Typhoid Mary!
