Books on Girl Scout history
Featured in the Washington Post:
Located in Potomac, Maryland, just 13 miles from Washington DC, Rockwood National Girl Scout Camp operated from 1938 to 1978. Around 12,000 Girl Scouts visited Rockwood each year. The girls toured Washington, made new friends, sang songs, and toasted millions of marshmallows.
When Girl Scouts of the USA announced that Camp Rockwood had been sold to a residential developer, a grassroots movement began to preserve the camp—to Rescue Rockwood. Eventually, nine Girl Scouts successfully sued to block the sale.
Packed with photos and eye-witness stories, Rescue Rockwood traces the development of the Girl Scouts of the USA and the Girl Scouts of Washington DC.
