Vote for your favourite Membership Badge design for 2017

Wednesday, 19 October 2016

Earlier this year we asked our members to take part in this year’s Membership Badge competition. The theme was ‘Woodcraft Folk in the year 2106’.

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.

 First fiver for the Folk!

Many of you will have received one of the newly issued five pound notes, marvelled at its see through water mark and indestructability, wondered if you should save it, spend it, frame it?

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.

Co-op Community Fund success

Wednesday, 21 September 2016

Congratulations to three districts, Bromley, Clapham and Chorlton & Whalley Range, who have been selected as recipients of the Co-op Local Community Fund.

As you will know, funding from the Co-op that regions and districts used to receive has been reduced or stopped. However, a new Local Community Fund has been set up to support local charities and the first recipients have been selected, including at least three Woodcraft districts.

David Bowie Tribute Summer Camp

Ground Control to Major Tom 

This summer, Reigate and Redhill District descended on Park Farm, a campsite run by Woodcraft Folk. This was a new site for us, and a new direction in the theming of camps!

We have tended to theme a camp about a local place or historical person – but this time we went with broadening our cultural knowledge into the relatively recent history – back into the youth of some of the leaders! Prehistory to the kids!

IFM Camp 2016 - Report

Wednesday, 31 August 2016

Welcome to another World 

220 Woodies from about 20 different districts attended the IFM camp; after the Catalans we were the second largest foreign

 group. Most of us lasted the two weeks, some came for one week only. The central catering took some getting used to and we missed the bonding that happens in the cooking clans. But there was lots of good stuff too.
