Camp Fire Girls - Obscure Honors

These honors date from the very first years of Camp Fire Girls. You'll only find these on the oldest of ceremonial gowns and on the "leathers." Learning these honors may help you put a date a gown.




1926
 
 

 

 

Special decorations for ceremonial gowns were awarded on a national level for original ideas, stories, song, poems, plays, drawings and photographs. UTA honor (the smallest size) was given for any effort, however humble. KEDA was given for deep thought and excellence. SHUTA was given for material that may have use in the national Camp Fire Girls. WAKAN was given for material that could be used in the handbook, Wohelo (the magazine), etc.

Five Fagot Honor - earned by sending $5.00 to National Headquarters for the use of increasing the Field Travel Fund. This fund was for professional Camp Fire Girls Officials to visit more local areas. 1937





The actual honor color isn't identified, and likely only one was sent to each Camp Fire Group (not to each girl). The additional seal would have been added to the group's charter paperwork.

Perhaps different colors were used for different years?
 

 
 

 

 

This honor was found with the 1938 honor shown above it. The year is unknown, but likely 1939, maybe 1940?
