What is Woodcraft Folk?

At Woodcraft Folk we believe passionately in equality and co-operation: everyone is welcome to join our groups.

Every week thousands of volunteers and young people meet in school halls, community venues and a host of other places to learn about big ideas through fun activities like singing, camping, playing and debating.

Our aim is to have great fun, but also to try to develop children’s self-confidence and build their awareness of society around them.

Through our activities, outings and camps we help our members:

  • To understand important issues like the environment, world debt and global conflict.
  • Developing activities focused on sustainable development.
  • To encourage children to think, hoping that they will help build a peaceful, fairer world.
