We gave it a B

Tom Knowlton and Mark Baldwin’s I Love Camp contains songs, skits, chants, and cheers commonly heard at camps, but you won’t have to suffer through ”99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall.” Prepare, though, to endure chestnuts like ”Junior Birdsmen” and ”John Jacob Jingleheimerschmidt.” More appealing is the radio skit in which one station breaks in on another (”The pitcher winds up and fires the ball into ze mixing bowl”), and the spoonerized tale of the three bears who live ”weep in the doods in a little louse made out of hogs.” Tom and Mark nicely evoke summer camp in all its whimsy.
