What is the Spirit of Arcadia?

          You know and I know...


It is the loyal Spirit

          That makes us proud of our Camp.

It is the wise Spirit

          That makes us think together in all things.

It is the busy Spirit

          That makes us work well.

It is the honest Spirit

          That makes us play fair.

It is the thrilling Spirit

          That makes us sing and cheer for our Camp.

It is the strong Spirit

          That makes us do unpleasant tasks without complaining.

It is the brave Spirit

          That carries us over the last mile and up the long, hard

                    climb and brings us home happy.

It is the contented Spirit

          That fills us as we sit around our Campfire.

It is the dreaming Spirit

          That makes us drift in our canoes on our blue lake at


It is the happy Spirit

          That makes us love the twinkling lantern--light on our

                    hillside at dusk.

It is the reverent Spirit

          That comes to us as we look at the stars through the

                    shadowy pine trees.

It is the great, glowing Spirit of the out-of-doors

          That makes us bigger, better, happier every day...


This is the true, blue Spirit of Arcadia.
