Calling all Pioneers, Venturers, DFs and volunteers! Join us at Hinchingbrooke Country Park on Saturday 6th December for an afternoon of bushcraft and social action. Sessions will introduce a variety of activities for young members and adults, supporting you to take these activities back to your groups. Topics include:

  • Knife safety and whittling
  • Campfire cookery
  • Simple wide games
  • Fire lighting
  • From Aims & Principles to Social Action: programme planning for Pioneer and Venturer groups
  • Starting your own social action project

The afternoon will start with an opening circle, followed by a choice of activities in smaller groups. We'll come back together for the final session where the group will work together to make a simple campfire dinner, before sharing favourite songs and stories. 

Volunteers who are parents/carers are welcome to bring children of Woodchip or Elfin age (under 10), but please be aware activities are aimed at Pioneers and above and you will need to supervise younger children whilst participating. If sufficient demand we may be able to provide a creche programme - please let us know when booking. 


Please book places by Monday 1st April by emailing Pippa@Woodcraft.org.uk - in your email please include the following information:

  • How many people will be attending and their age group
  • Any dietary requirements or other needs or circumstances we should be aware of
  • Whether you are interested in a creche for children aged under 10

This event is part of a project funded by the #iwill Programme through the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation.
