The Girls’ Friendly Society was found in England in 1875, and sponsored in this country by individual Episcopal churches. The one in Battle Creek, Michigan, had a camp, Friendly Acres, in the 1920s. Judging by the photograph it was located on an interurban line and functioned as a day camp.
The photograph is one of those long ones that were made then.
The groups in the center and the left look to be more interested in the camp fire
than those on the right.
