From 1929 to 1934 Kodak manufactured special cameras for Girl Scouts, Camp Fire Girls, Girl Guides in England and Boy Scouts. The camera models were identical for the different organizations although the color and insignia varied.

Beginning in 1917, Girl Scouts could earn a merit badge in photography by fulfilling a list of somewhat rigorous requirements. Both badges and requirements changed over the years.

Other companies also manufactured scouting cameras for girls.
