Members of the Young Folk of the Hitler Youth at a vacation camp

The Young Folk program of the Hitler Youth emphasized outdoor group activities to build strong bodies and encourage comradeship. Here, members of the Young Folk sing as they march at a vacation camp. Such camping trips were particularly welcomed by boys from Germany's large urban areas.
