Abstract: It has long been recognized that relief from regular routine is necessary for the happiness and well being of individuals. Recreation in the form of play has become an accepted means of relief from routine. It is true that people enjoy recreation alone, but since man is a "gregarious animal" it is reasonable to assume that people find greater enjoyment in participating in some kind of group recreation. The youth, of high school age, whether boy or girl, is usually group minded. The sudden and rapid organization of gangs and clubs at this age emphasizes this point. Teen age girls of this generation are faced with many problems which are not easily understood by parents or teachers. It is hoped that this study will provide useful information to the teacher in helping teen age girls to meet their recreational problems with greater understanding.
