Camp Hindenburg was a summer youth camp for the German American Bund near Grafton, Wisconsin 18 miles north of Milwaukee off of U. S. Highway 141. The camp itself was in a valley surrounded by wooded hills. The nearby Milwaukee River provided swimming facilities.
The Bund scouts or Jungenschaft would come from the surrounding areas of Chicago and Milwaukee. In 1937 over a hundred youths would attend the summer camp. Youth leader Karl Moeller from Chicago was camp supervisor.
In 1939 the Wisconsin Federation of German-American Societies who was opposed to the Bund acquired the lease to Camp Hindenburg and renamed it Camp Carl Schurz in honor of a famous German-American political leader. Bund members protested saying their camp was "stolen." However a few months later they opened a new camp nearby.
