Kia Kima Alma Mater
High above the South Fork waters
Reared against the sky
Proudly stands our dear old camp
As the years go by
Onward, ever, be our watchword
Conquer and prevail
Here's to thee, O, Kia Kima
BSA, all hail!
The Kia Kima alma mater was written at camp in 1926. The original author is unknown. It is traditionally sung at the closing campfire.
The song is based off of the Vanderbilt University alma mater which is in turn based off of Cornell University's alma mater, Far Above Cayuga's Waters.
