At a Communist Summer Camp in Swanage, the delegates, many of them Jewish, can be seen camping, attending outdoor lectures in the grounds of Oldfeld School as well as dancing, playing tennis and assembling for lunch. After a group visit to Swanage Beach, Lewis Rosenberg's friends are seen cycling, sunbathing, exercising andcavorting on the beach and splashing in the sea. The group go on a paddle steamer excursion, and the delegates attend another open-air lecture.
