Our camp song, Fly, was sung every evening as a way to close the day. Its lyrics incorporate the Shema and the affirmative mantra “I will run, I will fly, I will look my fear in the eye. Faster, Higher, Stronger. I know I can fly”. This wonderful message is inspired by Isaiah 40:31, “…but those who believe will remain strong. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow tired, they will walk and not grow faint.”
Credit goes to Joel Swedlove, Program Director and Songleader extraordinaire, who penned this amazing song, giving camp a profound way to end each day.
