MTC - Camp MinsiArticlesThe Camp Minsi Alma Mater

The Camp Minsi Alma Mater

"Sing her glories, live her ideals, hold her memories dear."

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 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 committed the words to memory, there are many that are not as familiar with the lyrics to this song; so here are the words (sung to the tune of "Annie Lisle") to the Camp Minsi Alma Mater.


By the shores of old Stillwater,
With its 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!
