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."
