This is an early watercolor drawing idealizing the activities of participants in the newly formed Camp Fire Girls (est. ca. 1910).  To the modern eye, it might seem ironic that Caucasian girls are dressed up in Native American costumes to go camping.  Both this drawing and the McLoughlin picture book anthology A Birthday Party and Other Stories bearing this same image will be pitching camp in New York!

Adopted by John Herzog in loving memory of Diana E. Herzog
