The Camp Minsi Alma Mater

The singing of the Camp Minsi Alma Mater has been a long-standing tradition at Camp Minsi. This anthem is sung at campfires, ceremonies and at other occasions throughout the summer. The Alma Mater holds a special meaning to many campers, leaders, and staff as it captures the spirit of Camp Minsi. While many long-time campers hold the song dear and have commited the words to memory, there are many that are not as familiar with the lyrics to this song. We've received some requests for the lyrics; and so, without further ado, here they are. Enjoy!


The Camp Minsi Alma Mater

By the shores of old Stillwater,
With it's azure blue,
Lies a camp of friendly Boy Scouts,
Cheerful, brave, and true.
Sing her glories, live her ideals,
Hold her memories dear.
Give a cheer that all may hear it;
Hail all hail Minsi.
Far away from care and turmoil
Of the busy town,
In a Brotherhood of Scouting;
We will there be found.
Sing her glories, live her ideals,
Hold her memories dear.
Give a cheer that all may hear it;
Hail all hail Minsi!
