The Camp Fire Law is a treasure to alumni Beverly Hutchinson Thompson. Bev grew up in the 1940's, attending the Camp Fire Girls Camp –Camp Natoma, located on the Central Coast of California. She often reflects on the foundational skills and relationships she learned and cherished during those years at the Camp Fire Camp. Bev loves the Camp Fire Law and in her own words says, “The Camp fire Law says it all.” Her memory is that at every meal, all the campers would sing the Camp Fire Law. She still loves to sing the historic song, and will harmonize beautifully with anyone who will sing along. The Law of the Camp Fire Girls is deep within Bev’s heart. In August 2019, friends presented Beverly wtih a plaque commemorating the Law of the Camp Fire, which includes symbols from Bev's ceremonial headband and colors that reflect the bright light within her. Instead of the dining hall at the summer camp, the Camp Fire Law now hangs prominently in Bev’s living room. She says it will come with her wherever she goes! Bev has lots of wonderful Camp Fire memories.

"I was 9 years old in 1941 and spent that year and many more at Camp Natoma. My daughter also spent her youth at camp. In our time, we had Junior Counselors and I also returned as Camp Director for three years after working as an employee there. I had also worked there as the Program Director. Therefore I would like to renew my membership this year." -Eunice Pierce, 84 years old
