I’m working on learning the 2016-2017 songs. They should be posted soon.
Update: I’m still learning the BC and North songs, but the rest of the sections are as complete as I am able to get them
Welcome to Sing Ontario Sing for the 2016-2017 year! And Happy Canada 150!
This year’s challenge is called “Singing Across Canada” and is designed to celebrate camp songs from across the country! This one has certainly been a challenge for me, as so many of the songs were new to me!
CLICK HERE to be taken to the requirements for this years crest on the official Guides Ontario website. I’ve listed the song list below by region, and linked all the songs available on My Virtual Songbook.
What is Sing Ontario Sing!?
For those of you unfamiliar, Sing Ontario Sing is an annual challenge put out to Guides to learn and sing certain Guiding songs to meet that year’s theme and requirements. Each year, the challenge is decided and put together by an Ontario unit, who decides the songs to choose from, the theme, and the requirements that must be met by each branch of Guiding to earn the crest. Sometimes even the crest is designed by the unit!
This annual challenge is much loved by units all over Ontario and challenges girls to learn new songs other than the favourites they like to sing in their units all the time.
