Alice is a Young Trainer in Woodcraft Folk. Here's how it happened:
My Woodcraft background
I've grown up with woodcraft as a strong part of my life. In the past I've attended regional camps, international camps, protests against pretty much everything, played fiddle at Hamsterly's 10th birthday (such a long time ago now!), hostel weekends and bivvis. During uni I drifted away from woodcraft temporarily. But after volunteering in India for 10 weeks, I realised that global issues, helping others and all the Woodcraft morals are still really close to my heart. So I'm now an Elfin and Pioneer leader, running local group nights and providing experiences that I had growing up as a child with Woodcraft.
Ice rink is booked for London Woodcraft Folk and Venturers are expected to be supervised by their leaders. Cost £6 for skaters.

Woodcraft Folk offers a range of training opportunities, some to be self-delivered on a local level and other more intensive residential training experiences. Woodcraft Folk aims to empower all leaders and helpers to be able to run groups with confidence and the necessary level of skill. Most of our training is provided by experienced volunteer leaders within Woodcraft Folk.
If you are interested in setting up a new group, the first thing you should do is find some friends willing to work with you. Once you have a small band of committed volunteers (at least 4), it is best to make contact with the Woodcraft Folk development team for support. The team will be able to offer advice, factsheets and link you up with a new group buddy.
This song is often sung by groups of Woodcraft Folk members at the end of a group night, or camp.
This is said by Woodcraft Folk groups at the beginning or end of their weekly meeting, and sometimes at camps and events. Members stand in a circle.
Young people under 16 can become members of national Woodcraft Folk for free. Becoming a member means you'll receive the monthly e-newsletter, an invitation to Annual Gathering (the Woodcraft Folk AGM) and lots of other news and opportunities from around the Folk.
