(There’s No Place Like) Camping in the Winter Time

(There’s No Place Like) Camping in the Winter Time

Sung to the tune of
(There's No Place Like) Home for the Holidays

Oh, there’s no place like camping on this weekend,
For no matter how low the merc’ry drops-
If you’re a member of Boy Scout Troop one-six-seven,
In the winter time you earn your camping chops!

Oh, the boys they start complaining when the forecast’s nice and dry.
They like to camp in ten feet of ice and snow.
If they don’t sleep in a blizzard then it isn’t worth the trip.
You can’t learn to treat your frostbite,
If it isn’t frigid at night!

Oh, there’s no place like camping on this weekend,
For no matter how low the merc’ry drops-
If you’re a member of Boy Scout Troop one-six-seven,
In the winter time you earn your camping chops!

The Scoutmaster builds a camp fire that’s seen from outer space,
It will melt a ring of snow a mile wide.
We’ll be sliding through a mud pit as we cook our dinner fare.
But, the food it is terrific,
Just don’t watch what they put in it!

Oh, there’s no place like camping on this weekend,
When we long for the comforts of a home,
If you want to be happy in a million ways,
Next time winter camp inside a Holidome!
Next time winter camp inside a Holidome!

See ya' on Monday!

You and your boyscouts are certifiably crazy! I am freezing cold sitting in my house with 2 layers of clothing on.

have a good time. TL won't even do it. Of course, winter camping here, means hiking two miles up a snow covered mountain to the camp site. Last year he said no way! WE'll see what this year holds.

It amazes me that winter is the time they really want to camp.

My boys love to camp in the winter..it's their favorite time of year. They say 'the colder, the better!"
