      Summary

      The original manual of the Camp Fire Girls, an organization among whose founders were Dr. & Mrs. Luther Halsey Gulick, was published in 1912. The motto of the Camp Fire Girls, "WoHeLo," was also the name of the Gulick's summer camp on Lake Sebago, ME. It stood for "work, health, love." "The primary purpose of Camp Fire," said Dr. Gulick, "is to promote service to others, team work, and opportunities for a well rounded life."

      The first Ccmp Fire Girls manual, "seems a small affair indeed. But how much was compressed in the brief volume with it's tastefullly designed kraft paper cover bearing the hand letted words "Camp Fire Girls" and the symbol of crossed logs and flame printed in dark brown and Chinese red! In those few pages was the distillation of two years' study and experimentation. Its material had been labortory tested in progressive schools, camps, and homes. It had been reviewed and criticized by important leaders in education, the arts, recreation, and 'character development.' Every precaution had been taken to make the new pioneering program sound, wise, and attractive. It was the essence of a new social venture, a pilot to the slowing emerging field of service to youth."
