A special song written by camp volunteer Raymond Boey:
CHICKS kids, CHICKS kids
You're amazing and we wont' forget you
Each day, all day
You impress us with the things that you do

You're incredible
In each and every way

Each day, all day
When you have a go at something new

We see, we hear,
How so happy these new things have made you

And if you asked to describe CHICKS kids, we'd say

That when you smile
It makes our time at CHICKS worthwhile
Cos you're amazing just the way you are

And when we play
It's something we could do all day
Cos you're amazing just the way you are

The way you are, the way you are
Kids you're amazing, just the way you are

Drop slides, horse rides
Playing dodgeball on the trampolines

Fun times, new friends and more confidence
That's what CHICKS means

And if you asked to describe CHICKS kids, we'd say

That when you smile
It makes our time at CHICKS worthwhile
Cos you're amazing just the way you are

And when we play
It's something we could do all day
Cos you're amazing just the way you are

The way you are, the way you are
Kids you're amazing, just the way you are
