Welcome to the Unofficial
Camp Tapawingo Online Songbook!
Use the navigation bar at the top of the page to find your favorite camp songs, or search for songs by title, tune, words, year written, or team leaders without needing to know the pitch, using the google search to the right.
How to Use this Website:
--Use the navigation bar at the top of each page, or click: Camp Songs, Blue Team Songs, Gray Team Songs, and Novelty Songs for a list of that type of song.
--Explore the Extra section for other songs we sing at camp, polls, and papers/speeches/blogs about camp, and more!
--Check out the Download tab to download any song on this site! Individual downloads are also available if you email me.
--Visit the Quizzes page for lots of quizzes covering many years. You will hear the real tunes to camp songs, and you need to fill in what the song is. Take all the quizzes, up to the year you stopped going to Tap.
--Songs are ordered alphabetically.
--Songs are labeled by team and year they were written if information is known.
--Songs also list the tune they are written to. Tunes that are underlined are a link to the real song in youtube. Please report any broken links/videos that have been taken down. If you know of any tunes that aren't listed, please email me.
--To search for a song by name or year written, use "Ctrl+F" (or Edit --> Find) and type the song or year while at the corresponding main page (i.e. you need to be on the Novelty Songs page if you are looking for a specific novelty song).
--Songs labeled with a ** have the song file attached to the song page. The song will automatically start playing, right in your browser. If you don't hear anything, click the 'play' button to start playing the song. Some also have individual downloads available as well.
--Button on the left is the 'speaker' to control the volume. Button on right is 'play' button. If you see this icon, the song is not playing automatically, or it has finished playing. Click the 'play' button to begin playing. Try it here!
--Most songs are also available in the "Download" section to download right to your computer. The songs can be downloaded as .zip files which include all other songs written in the same year. Some individual songs can be downloaded on the specific song pages. If clicking "Download Now" does not automatically kick of the download but instead takes you to a new page where the song beings playing, right click on that page and select "Save As..." Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want any more individual downloads that you cannot find on the site.
