karaokeNova Scotia has a deep history of fishing, ship building, and sailing and thus the sea shanty can be heard echoing through the land.

We challenge our campers, as individuals or crews, to come up with their own sea shanties variations related to SQL Server and then share them with the rest of the camp.

This is a a friendly and extremely fun competition in which the winning singer / crew leave with a prize worthy of the best SQL sea shanty out there!

To inspire you to get your shanty created and practiced before arriving at camp, here are some of our favorite traditional shanties!


We will close out our week of camp with “Farewell to Nova Scotia” at our final gathering. The video is below and the lyrics are here.


You can get the lyrics for a lot of other popular shanties here.
