About your song (e.g., any unique instruments used, the origins of the lyrics, what inspired you, etc.):

This is one of the "classic" songs that I remember from my childhood kid - and what was so great about this recording - is that I was able to bring in over a dozen other kindie artists to record themselves joining in on the chorus. It really brings together the "hootenanny" vibe that I was going for - and the it reinforces the ideas of community and collaboration, which are 2 really important things to me. 

What you hope children & families will get from this song:

FUN FUN FUN! And dancing. This song isn't so much about a moral, or a lesson -- though I do pepper the lyrics with the idea of good sportsmanship (something you learn at camp!) It's much more about coming together and hootin' and hollerin' with friends and family. It's an invitation to celebrate the joys of summer, of childhood, of camp.
