To All Camp Fire Girls:
I remember the house on Arguello. I know it is still there. Thanks for the info. I will research it. Do you remember your Indian names? Mine was Pikada. And I remember the vests and the beads-- If only I still had mine. It was a great time to be a Camp Fire Girl. And I do remember something about day camp at the arborteum area at 9th and Lincoln.
Around l992 or so my son joined Camp Fire Girls and Boys but it never got off the ground (for that group, anyway). The 7 and 8 year old girls did not like the boys! And the boys wanted to the name the group the "Ninjas."
