A Song Worth Remembering

Posted by on Apr 25, 2012 in Camp Fun, Camp News, LLYC: The Beat

Music plays a pretty big role at camp, and it has for a very long time. As campers, we learn songs that speak of God’s character and love right alongside old country and rock standards. Whether it’s shouting along to “Bill Grogan’s Goat” in the Old Pavilion at Singing Hills, singing “Abilene” or “King of […]
