Campfire Girl ceremonial dress handed down from within our family, likely worn sometime between 1940-1943. Participant at Camp I-WA-SU in New York. WOHELO label inside. “Wohelo” stands for Work, Health, and Love—values that have been central to Camp Fire since their founding in 1910. Leather fringe and sewn on decorative earned honor patches. Bright colorful wooden honor beads. Great colors and design.

Vintage condition. See photos.
Measures approx 21" armpit to armpit. 43" top of shoulder to bottom.

We have two other Campfire Girl listings. One includes a 1936 Book of The Camp Fire Girls, First Printing and a original Torch Bearer's Pin. Another listing includes a Headband, extra leather honor patches and honor beads which were most likely going to be added to the dress.
