These are the fronts and backs of some official Girl Scout Camp Post Cards showing tents. These postcards date from the 1940s. Two of them have messages written by campers. The first one was sent from Buffalo, Minnesota in 1942. There was a Camp Greenwood at Buffalo which had been there since 1925 and was mentioned as closing in a 2010 article Waving Goodbye to Girl Scout Camps. This was one of many Girl Scout camps that have closed in recent years.
The third postcard was sent from Bovey, Minnesota in 1947. Bovey is a small city in northern Minnesota. I was not able to find any references to a Girl Scout camp there.
The tents shown on the postcards are platform tents. They appear to be like the ones that my old Girl Scout troop used for overnight camping. The photo below shows one of those tents.
