Music at Camp

Music is everywhere at Camp! Campers enjoyed this morning’s song session at the stage, jams at the pool, a jazzercise block in the Dining Hall and a concert in the Moadone during this afternoon’s Earth Day festivities. At Tawonga, we hear a variety of music genres from the states and internationally.


For example, at the start of the session, our Mishlachat (Israeli staff delegation) taught campers a dance to the Israeli song, “Hi Rak Rotza Lirkod,” meaning, “She just wants to dance.” Whether in the Dining Hall during a meal or at the Stage for a campfire, every and anytime the song plays, Campers jump off their feet and run to join their friends in the choreographed dance. It has become a Camp music staple!


Despite the heat, everyone’s spirits were high during this afternoon’s Earth Day concert. Song leaders, our TLI (Teen Leadership Institute) teens and a few passionate campers performed Earth-themed Camp classics to show our appreciation and respect for nature and all it does to keeping our planet turning.


The Earth Day concert featured the following setlist, curated by our amazing song leaders.


  1. This Land is Your Land
  2. Big Yellow Taxi
  3. The Weight
  4. Cherry Wine
  5. I Am California (performed by camper Devin and TLI)
  6. Ophelia
  7. Wagon Wheel
  8. Rivers and Roads


We hope campers will continue listening to these songs post-Camp, and that this music reminds them of all the fun and excitement that comes with being a Tawongan!
