Comment about Camp Pahaquarra Song
Yes, it was sung when I was there in 1968 to 1971. I don't know the name of the tune that is used, but I can hum it (hard to hum via email). The minor differences probably could be changes over different summers or just between different groups. Here are some more verses that were sung.
Oh the counselors at Pahaquarra,
There are about 10 more verses, each followed by refrain, but I can't remember them. Or, try these verses.
Oh Ranger Jack, oh Ranger Jack, how could you be so mean
This, of course, refers to Jack Haley, last ranger at Pahaquarra and first ranger at the new Yards Creek Scout Reservation. I recall the time in 1969 that Jack got fed up with hearing Jimi Hendrix's version of Star Spangled Banner being played over loudspeakers at camp across the river. He rowed over in a canoe one night and cut wires and removed speakers.
Thanks Larry for all the wonderful verses. Hugh would have been at camp, as a scout, somewhere around 1929 to 1935. Larry was at camp quite a bit later between 1968 to 1971. Note that 1971 was the last year of camping at Pahaquarra.
As a personal note, I would like to add that Hugh Callahan was a fine person. He was active in scouting for his entire life, holding many, many positions within the council and giving generously of his time. ... jos
Compare this with the Camp Cowaw song (Raritan Council)
