Boys' Uniformed Group: Activities--Singing

Figure 1.--These French Cubs and Scouts are participating in a choral presentation. Note that the Cubs wear berets and te one younger Cub wears a halter with his liederhosen.

Singing is a popular activity, especially at camp or around the campfire. I'm not sure about the Boys' Brigade, but most early youth groups like Wandervogel and the Scouts liked to sing. Camp fire songs are especially asdsociated with Scouting. It was perhaps most popular with the Hitler Youth which strove to build camradeie among the boys. We have this image of Hitler Youth boys singing as they march through the country side. How accurate that is we do nt know at this time. The Pioneer also sung, but we believe that thuis was primarily a camp activity. Some Scout groups have formed choirs, we do not know if this was also the case of other groups.
