Camp Farnsworth/Camp Hanoum

This land holds an important early history of girl's camp programing and the
development of the Girl Scouts of the USA and the Camp Fire Girls. Professor
Charles Hubert Farnsworth and his wife, Charlotte Farnsworth originally
owned the land and started a small, girls only, program with sleeping
outdoors. This grew into an active summer residential camp experience called
Camp Hanoum, and later, as the large property was divided into small camp
areas, it was called The Hanoum Camps. Mrs. Farnsworth died in 1946 and
Prof. Farnsworth died in 1947. The camp was then managed by two former
campers, then sold to the Girl Scouts in 1959. It continues today.

Wapanacki is another Vermont camp with a long history. In 1937/1938 Dr.
Merle E. Frampton (1904-1999) opened up the first camp in the nation for
visually impaired children. It was a great success, offering camping
opportunities in the summer and winter and being a model for camps. It ran for many years. The Girl
Scouts either bought or the camp was donated to them sometime in the 1990s.
Currently the camp is closed and to be sold.
