This photo from nearly a century ago shows early Camp Fire Girls cooking a meal at a campsite near Ames. Walter Grove later donated a portion of his land a few miles north of town for a permanent camping facility. To honor Grove, the site was given the name Camp Canwita, “small grove on top of hill.” To learn more about this photo, visit AmesHistoricalSociety.org
