This blog page lists posts about the short-lived British version of the Camp Fire Girls movement, which existed in Britain from WW1 and 1921 until the late 1960s just into the early 1970s. Little is now published or remembered about this youth movement.

The founder in Britain was Margaret Ann Backhouse, helped by others such as M.H. Helen Clegg, Norah Ackerley and many Camp Fire Guardians (adult leaders). Birmingham and the Midlands was a core area despite the National Headquarters being in London but groups existed nationwide across England.
