News and stories
During the Spring term groups are being encouraged to think to the future - what are their ambitions for their group and the wider movement as we head towards our centenary in 2025.
This year's Hands In activities are all linked to gathering feedback from children and young people about the things they enjoy in Woodcraft Folk and the things they wish to improve. The feedback will inform Woodcraft Folk's strategic plan, which currently has 3 priorities:
- Supporting new groups
- Sustaining existing groups
- Reaching out to new communities
The Northern Region are planning a co-operative camp, on in which Districts choose to camp at the same time and in the same place as other Districts. District will each be responsible for their own catering, equipment and transport BUT will have the opportunity to network with each other.
Each village will provide an afternoon's entertainment to the wider camp e.g. picnic, bushcraft, storytelling, den building, pea fair.
In 2017 northern campers will be heading to Whitby from July 29th until August 5th.
This term we're running a number of Webinars on District Office Bearer roles:
Folk Assembly 2017 will be held at Bramphope Campsite near Leeds from Friday 23 June to Sunday 25 June.

Meet Woodies from around the country and share ideas.
Help shape the movement.
