When boy scouts were discovered as a market for cameras and several camera makers offered their "Scout" products Herbert George of Chicago discovered that there were girl scouts too. His reaction was the release of the Official Girl Scout Camera, a box camera for making 2¼×2¼ exposures on type No. 620 film rolls, probably just a renamed Savoy Mark II. It was the typical Herbert George box camera design with a telescopic viewfinder on top. A big bulb flash was attachable on the camera top.

A later version of the Girl Scout camera was based on the Imperial Mark XII Flash.
