Elfins

South East & South West inter-regional camp

Event date: 
14 August 2010 (All day) - 21 August 2010 (All day)
Event location: 
Lyon's Copse, Hampshire

The camp will take place in August for a week at the Scout site at Lyon's Copse. Districts wishing to attend from the SE and SW have already expressed an interest and currently we are expecting between 500 and 650 campers. The camp is going to be supported by a website and on-line booking. This exciting camp will be organised in the same fashion as the SE and SW camps, emphasising village activity and encouraging organic co-operation without an overbearing central programme.

Elfins

Once children have started school they move up into our Elfin groups. They tend to start at age 5 or 6, depending on the local group.

We continue with games, singing, craft activities and outdoor stuff and try to keep the Woodcraft Folk principles in mind throughout.

Alternative games

With this age group we play games that are a bit different from those they play at school.

They all know how to play musical chairs, but at Woodcraft Folk they would have to share chairs when the music stops rather than be out, for example.

My first blog post

This is the very first blog posting. The site is coming along, I'm working on various views in the members' section. More good stuff to come...

Cocoa farmer

Aim: To understand why consumers should pay a fair price for cocoa.
You will need: Props (optional).
Duration: 30 minutes

As a group you will role play two scenarios. One is set in Ghana, the other in the UK. Each group will be performing their scenes at the same time.

Poetry against prejudice

Write a short anti-prejudice poem. You could write in the style of a Haiku, a form of traditional Japanese poetry. It is a 17-syllable verse form consisting of just three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables (or beats). Haiku doesn't rhyme.

Examples:

Prejudice is when
people speak without thinking
and fail to listen.

I think words can hurt
More than hitting or kicking -
Cutting me inside

When you have written a poem you can share it with other young people through this website.
