Outcomes Matrix

A successful programme for a Woodcraft group will include a range of activities inspired by our Aims & Principles.

Vote for your favourite Membership Badge design for 2017

Wednesday, 19 October 2016

Last year was a chance for reflection and looking back at our history. So we thought this time we’d like our members to look to the future and imagine Woodcraft Folk in another 90 years.

Send us your site ideas for international camp 2020

Saturday, 8 October 2016

 

The Woodcraft Folk is hosting an international camp in 2020.

We are beginning the search for a site and would love to hear your suggestions. We will need a site which can accomodate up to 4000 people, but due to us camping in large circles, we will be looking for sites with quoted capacities of around 10 000 people.
