BACKGROUND NOTE



The Camp Fire organization was established in 1910 by Dr. Luther Halsey Gulick and his wife, Charlotte. The purpose of the organization was to guide young girls in self discovery while developing a home spirit. Camp Fire Girls was heavily influenced by American Indian lore by using symbols, wearing ceremonial gowns, and picking American Indian names. Dr. Gulick believed the experiences young people have early in life teaches them to care for themselves, their environment, and the people around them for a lifetime.



The Camp Fire Girls was divided into four clubs: Blue Birds, Adventure Club, Discovery Club, and Horizon Club. The youngest, Blue Birds, was for girls in grades 1 through 3, while the Horizon Club was designed for girls in grades 9 through 12. Over the years these clubs changed and even new clubs were created. For instance, in 1975 when boys were invited to join Camp Fire, Blue Jays was established as the male equivalence to Blue Birds.



Girls were able to learn valuable lessons as they worked for honors to make rank within the organization. These honors were divided into seven crafts: Home, Health, Camp, Hand, Nature, Business, and Citizenship/Patriotism. Once a girl received enough honors, she would make rank.



There were four ranks available to achieve: Trail Seeker, Wood Gatherer, Fire Maker, and Torch Bearer and each rank had requirements to achieve before moving on to the next one. The highest award in Camp Fire was the Wohelo Medallion. This award was only open to members in grades 9 through 12. Each year the Camp Fire would gather to welcome newcomers, present awards and recognize members for their achievements – this was called the Grand Council Fire.



Lincoln became a member in 1912 when the Camp Fire Girls became known nationally. However, it wasn’t until 1922 when Lincoln received its official charter. The Lincoln Council (later known as the Pioneer Council) had jurisdiction not just in Lincoln but other surrounding towns including but not limited to Milford, Seward, Auburn, Hallam, Sutton and even Columbus at one time or another. In the late 1950s Camp Fire Girls in Lincoln was divided into three districts: District 1 (Nakeema District), District II (Shawonda District), and District III. Each District had its own committee members and schools to operate out of.



Soon after joining the Camp Fire Girls, the Lincoln Council signed a lease agreement with the Kiwanis Club for Camp Kiwanis near Milford on the Blue River. At Camp Kiwanis girls learned the essentials of camping, including making a fire, field cooking, canoeing, swimming and archery. In 1971 the agreement was terminated and Camp Kiwanis was renamed The Easter Seal Camp, which catered to disabled children. The Lincoln Council continued to operate until the mid-1990s when the chapter was dissolved.



Today, Camp Fire serves in twenty-eight states. Camp Fire was America’s first nonsectarian and multicultural organization – open to all children no matter their race, sex, religion, or sexual orientation – and continues to stay true to its core values.
