Scoutismo católico en Argentina (1940-1960)


Varia hist.




Abstract The aim of this article is to analyze the relation among the scouting culture, the Catholicism and youngster associationism from 1940 to 1960 in Argentina. The dynamism achieved by the Catholic Church during the 1930s, along with the efforts to dismantle the liberal state established during the 19th century, reached its limits during the 1940s and 1960s. We wonder what the purpose of Catholic camps was and what the grounds and strategies were to occupy the free time of young people during holidays, and in that way shape their masculinity within the Catholic morale. It is worth highlighting that in such period the social interaction in youngsters was diversified and crossed by cultural distractions, renovated as a result of the new cultural strategies of massive consumption, which the Catholic thinking regarded as harmful.
