Groups from all across Scotland will be gathering for our summer camp in a new location in Dumfires and Galloway - Standingstone Farm. We have lots planned including beach activities, countryside walks, helping on the farm, wide games - full programme to come soon.
We will camp in one village with communal cooking facilities. Groups can help with loans of sleeping tents and bags.
The camp will be open to all Scotland Woodcraft Folk members and space is limited so book early.
From March 2016 Woodcraft Folk will be processing DBS application forms online!!
If you're a new member or are an existing member whose current DBS certificate has now lapsed, you can now go on to the online system to create and complete an application.
Being outdoors and enjoying the natural environment is a key part of Woodcraft Folk but we need to do it safely and look after everybody's wellbeing. This web area has been set up to help Woodcraft Folk groups do outdoor activities safely.
The site is very near the M6, M56 and M25, and is also not far from the metrolink, which
Funding Opportunities for Districts & Groups
Districts and Groups generally have two sources of funding, local fundraising and grants.
Local fundraising may include:
Free leader training
for Woodcraft Folk leaders, parents and helpers
Learn practical, hands-on activities for children and young people!
We advise all our groups to open Co-op bank accounts. To open an account you can either go to your local Co-operative bank or download a 'Community Directplus' bank application form for their website.
A weekend training residential for new leaders, or those wanting a chance to brush up their skills.
From its beginnings in 1925 to today, Woodcraft Folk has always been dedicated to growing the confidence and social awareness of young people. Support from the Youth United Foundation’s Social Action Fund has enabled Woodcraft Folk’s most ambitious programme of growth for a generation, making 2015 not just a year for reflecting on the organisation’s past, but also looking forward to its future.
