In the early years of Kia Kima, there existed several recognition programs for campers. The two main programs were the Kamp Emblem and the Council Scouts.

Kamp Emblem was an award given to Scouts who completed certain requirements while at camp. Recipients of this award were referred to as Emblem Scouts. The Kamp Emblem is the iconic black or red felt sesh worn around the waist of Kia Kima Scouts displaying patches from their years at camp.

Council Scouts was an honor society and a forerunner to the Order of the Arrow. It possessed some similar elements of the Order of the Arrow, and was discontinued when the Order of the Arrow was adopted.
