Within each group the boys took part various kinds of activities such as, camping, hiking, and military discipline. They had to wear uniform, they were taught how to use guns, also how to read maps as well as taking part in long marches. The boys did these activities because Hitler and other Nazi's wanted them to be trained like as soldiers, so they could become one and Hitler could have his own Nazi army. ...read more.
