Quidnunc Song

(Tune: Drifting and Dreaming"
from Staff handbook, 1951

Thread after thread, the spider weaves...
It weaves a friendship that never leaves.
With spirits ever high, we'll always be
Faithful and loyal,
Quidnunc to thee.

Happiness reflected in silken thread
High ideals woven into each web
All other camps, you may all try-
But, at Camp Quidnunc, true standards lie.

Thanks to Lanie Hildenbrand Sussman for reminding us!


  1. Dear Lanie;
    Thanks for posting the words to the Quidnunc song. It's 1:00 am in the morning, and I'm sitting at my computer, singing this song out loud, and wiping away the tears. I last sang it 67 years ago. I was at Quidnunc in 1942. It seems as if it were yesterday.

  2. I added the second verse, after i found it in the 1951 Staff Handbook.
