Robert and Elsie Grimmett  
   
 
The Girls Scouts have held summer camps in the Dinkey Creek area since 1947, however, it was not until 1958 that they had a camp they could call their own. 
That was the year Robert and Elsie Grimmett gave 58 acres of land to the Girl Scout Council making it possible for them to build their own camp.

Robert Grimmett was one of the founders of the Pine Logging Company.  You can read about the history of Pine Logging at http://www.pinelogging.org/Home  While the Pine Logging Company is no longer operating, the old logging buildings are being renovated, and they may soon be open to the public.

The dining hall at Camp El-O-Win was named for Robert and Elsie Grimmett in 1959.
