Photo album documenting several summers at Girl Scout Camp Cardinal and Camp Tall Trees in the late 1920s. Campers and counselors alike pictured in uniform, in costume, and dressed for sport; all subjects identified by name or nickname ("Captain Betty," etc.), date, and often place in the careful captions. Images include a snapshot of two Scouts posing in a romantic embrace for "Stunt Nite" 1928, a precarious gymnastics pyramid, archery practice, and a joint GSA/BSA march for Armistice Day.
