This film contains footage of a Hunslet Boys Club camp and shows the camp being set up, the young campers arriving, the activities that they take part in, and the day trips that they go on including the fun fair and drives along the coast. The club was established in 1940 by Dr. J. Wyllie as a way of offering young people the chance to improve their skills in areas such as sports, crafts, karate, and IT. It was an opportunity for recreation and friendship and the motto was "Fitness for Life".
This film is one of several from the Parkin collection. It depicts family activities in the countryside on their visit to Castleford, a trip to the seaside and a birthday party.
