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!
