[Child development] 1847-48 Camp Fire Girls Leader Archive -Arlington MA.
[Excerpt from Wo-He-Lo: The Camp Fire History, copyright 1980 by Camp Fire, Inc.] The aim of the organization is to provide for girls outdoor activities corresponding to those furnished boys by the Boy Scout movement. It seeks to encourage a greater interest among girls in exercises in the open with the threefold aim of developing their bodies, mind and characters. It is recognized, however, that the activities provided for the girls must be fundamentally different from those of boys and that special attention must be paid to the home. . .
