Camp Fire Boys and Girls
Luther and Charlotte Gulick founded the Camp Fire Girls in 1910. Luther helped to form the Boy Scouts of America in 1910, and later received many letters requesting a similar opportunity for girls. The Gulicks had operated a family camp for 20 years and had organized one of the nation’s first girl’s camps, Camp Sebago-Wohelo, on the shores of Lake Sebago in Maine, in 1909. “Wohelo” was a word Charlotte invented from the first two letters of the words “work,” “health,” and “love.” 
 
The Gulicks were well known for their work, and the popularity of the Camp Fire Girls grew rapidly. In 1975, the organization began admitting boys and was renamed Camp Fire Boys and Girls. Today, more than 500,000 young people are involved with the Camp Fire organization.
