News and stories
GREAT NEWS!! We’re hosting ‘New Leader Training’ at the Lockerbrook centre this December, March & September 2015.
Members are welcome to come along and take part in a weekend of different workshops focused on supporting our children and young people in the movement.
Woodcraft 1st Boardgame Camp
Myself and Joe pulled up at Darsham Country Centre in the darkness around 9:30pm. They weren’t joking when they said it was close to the train tracks, it literary is the train station with platform 1 looking into the dining room and lounge. We went around the back to find our way in to find Fin and Stephen sitting in the dining room looking at a pile of games. This game pile would soon expand to fill the whole table as I emptied by game filled car boot to give us a massive range to try to play through.
Here I am is a project set up and run by Angie Ross and Shona Cattan in conjunction with The Choas Venturers
Northampton Woodcraft Folk’s journey begins
In September 2014 the Northampton Woodcraft Folk was launched at Wootton Hall Park alongside the three Emergency

What is an IFM-SEI camp?
IFM-SEI, Woodcraft Folk’s umbrella organisation, hosts an international camp every 5-6 years in co-operation with another IFM-SEI organisation (or two!).

I get it! Can you give us some examples?
