Horace Mann Studies in Elementary Education: Clubs for Young Boys


by Charles F. Smith & Elbert K. Fretwell, Jr. - 1921

There has been much discussion though but little concerted action directed towards the formation of a standard club program for boys under twelve years of age. The Wolf Club plan in England provides a program for boys under eleven years of age. Little has been done in America, however, to develop the Wolf Club or any other idea leading to a program that requires cooperative effort for boys under twelve years of age. Practically all the hundreds of large boys' clubs have only a free play program for boys under twelve. A careful investigation of the long list of books that have been written on boys' clubs shows that these writers recognize the gregarious instinct of boys, but at the same time such an investigation brings to light the fact that little if any work has been done to formulate programs that are of themselves satisfying to boys.
