Camps for All at Biblins

Between 10 – 12 June 2022 a group of young people who were completely new to Woodcraft Folk travelled to Biblins Youth Campsite for a weekend of fun, adventure and friendship. 

Facilitated by Development Officer Lauren and Woodcraft Folk’s wonderful team of ESC volunteers Sandra, Eva and Luisa, the camp was the first of the ‘Camps for All’ series happening over 2022. Camps for All aims to support a new idea of how to bring brilliant experiences to young people who are not (yet) members of Woodcraft Folk and do not attend a weekly group nights. 

The group, who were all first time Woodcraft Folk campers enjoyed the usual experiences that a camp can bring: campfires, cooking together, washing up, bushcraft and games as well as an extremely scenic (and a little windy) canoe down the river Wye into Monmouth.

After the canoeing, the group walked back to the campsite with a refreshing ice cream and saw cows, sheep and many different types of birds, insects and other animals on the journey.

The group stayed in the special Burrow accommodation and all were amazed and impressed by the sliding roof, especially as the sun was shining for most of the weekend. Everyone enjoyed toasting their marshmallows on the roaring campfire after whittling the perfect marshmallow stick. “I ate my marshmallow in 7 layers!” – Ti, aged 11.

All of the participants explored some of Woodcraft Folk’s aims and principles including cooperation and working together during cooking, canoeing and onsite orienteering.

If you or someone you know is aged 10-15 and interested in having great fun, meeting new people and exploring the social and natural world around us, check out the information about our upcoming October residential at Lockerbrook Farm Outdoor Centre here
