Postwar French youth camp

Film | Accession Number: 2003.213 | RG Number: RG-60.4176 | Film ID: 3023

This series of outtakes features adolescents (both male and female) in the mountains in France playing volleyball and other sports, dancing, singing and engaging in various outdoor activities at a youth camp. The exact location of this camp in France is not known. In the BG several tents are visible on the hillside. This footage has obviously been staged for the camera. The camera slates between takes indicate that this production was done in conjunction with the YMCA, which explains the focus on youth and their healthy development; the footage was most likely intended for use in an informational/documentary production for the French to encourage a return to routines of daily life that existed before the war.
