Background
Camp Fire, Inc., headquartered in Kansas City, Mo., was founded by Dr. and Mrs. Luther H. Gulick (1910) and incorporated in 1912. The organization was originally called Camp Fire Girls, Inc. Its primary purpose is to "improve those conditions in society which affect youth." It offers children from 6 through 18 years of age three types of programs: a club program; response programs (including adults) dedicated to specific youth needs in individual communities; and, outdoor programs, including trips, camping and environmental projects. Participants are assigned to one of four levels within the organization based upon age. The Stockton Campfire Girls were organized in September 1913. Their summer camp was at Camp Minkalo on the Russian River in Sonoma County.
