I too was a blue bird, camp fire girl and horizon club member in the 50-60's in Berkeley but I worked as a counselor for the oldest group of campers at Camp Caniya, San Francisco summer camp for camp fire girls for all the sessions of the summer of 1969. They were almost the same age as me. Someone who may be reading this, if your nickname was AJAX, I was your counselor. Does anyone remember having to select an indian name and going to counsel fires? It was a wonderful time. I loved it.
