Young Leaders Training 12th - 14th of October - Bristol

Wednesday, 17 October 2012

 This weekend (12th to 14th of October) saw the coming together of 16 young leaders from across the Woodcraft membership to the YHA Bristol to hone their leadership skills. They came from as far North as Newcastle and were aged 15 to 24, either young leaders from Elfin or Pioneer Groups or looking to become ones.

The weekend started by a review of the key aims and principles of Woodcraft and how these were put into practice by our groups. As these would be the building blocks of our young leaders leading and the reasons they were doing so.

Venturers, DFs, young Kinsfolk: Here is your chance to become a leader.


If you think about it, you probably already lead in some way. Leading in Woodcraft Folk isn’t about standing above or in front of everyone else and telling them what to do, it’s about understanding people and helping them understand the world – and then change it for the better – whether it’s through cookery or campaigning.

Blue Skies Camp

Wednesday, 22 August 2012

You may have heard that this summer Woodcraft Folk tried something new – we mixed experienced leaders, young people interested in leading groups, and new groups of children and parents – all at Woodcraft Park Farm. If you’ve played Woodcraft Crumble, you’ll have an idea of what it was like. Our aim was to match up the young people who wanted to develop their skills with the people who already had those skills, plus the children who would enjoy the games run by the new young leaders as they practised what they’d learned.
