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 called Camp Minkalo, which from 1919-1922
was at different locations within California.
