Camp Kalsman Mashups

Have you ever found yourself re-writing the words to songs to match your experiences at camp? Whether it’s adding “Jordan Road” into Country Roads or rewriting an entire song (like the Call Me Maybe version below) it’s always fun to sing AND record! We’d love to see your Kalsman takes on popular songs and here’s one to get you started! Record your song and post it to our facebook wall!

I’m at the Chadar Ochel
and oops my plate it just fell
I looked to you and could tell
that you would save the day

Laughing ‘bout two swimming fish
Share bis that’s oh so delish
I didn’t know I’d find this
but now we’re here to stay

My smile’s glowing
and my friendship bracelet’s showing
hot days wind is blowing
and our friendship’s growing, baby

Hey! I just met you
and this is crazy
but we’re best friends now
that’s Kalsman, baby!

And all our counselors
think we’re crazy
we’re friends forever
Camp Kalsman, baby!

Hey! I just met you
and this is crazy
but we’re best friends now
that’s Kalsman, baby!

When I was worried I’d fall
from the tower you would call
tell me to not fear at all
you really made me brave

We’re walking Mordechai
and you are such a fine guy
you let me walk him right by
my crush –  you made my day!

My smile’s glowing
and my friendship bracelet’s showing
hot days wind is blowing
and our friendship’s growing, baby

Hey! I just met you
and this is crazy
but we’re best friends now
that’s Kalsman, baby!

And all our counselors
think we’re crazy
we’re friends forever
Camp Kalsman, baby!

Hey! I just met you
and this is crazy
but we’re best friends now
that’s Kalsman, baby!

And all our counselors
think we’re crazy
we’re friends forever
Camp Kalsman, baby!

Before you came into my life
I didn’t know that
that you were so rad
but now I’m so so glad

It’s hard to know that
you live in Portland
we’ll keep in touch, friend!
Camp Kalsman, baby!

Hey! I just met you
and this is crazy
but we’re best friends now
that’s Kalsman, baby!

And all our counselors
think we’re crazy
we’re friends forever
Camp Kalsman, baby!

Thanks to Rabbi Emily Meyer for this fun rewrite!
