Blank Woodcraft Folk logos for colouring in

There are three PDF files attached.

The first is an A4 sheet with an outline version of the Woodcraft Folk logo for you to print out (and maybe blow up on a photocopier). This is particularly useful for Woodchips and younger Elfins who are more confident colouring in than creating their own version of the logo on a blank piece of paper.

The second is similar but has slightly simpler simpler new style outline. 

The third is a sheet of 15 versions of the Woodcraft and DF logos which can be printed onto labels for colouring in.

Group night activities to prepare for Annual Gathering

What is Annual Gathering?

Annual Gathering is a two day event which happens every year. It’s the only annual camp which gathers Woodcraft Folk of all ages from right across the UK. It is also the setting for our national Annual Conference, or AGM. During the conference the delegates discuss how Woodcraft Folk works and what we do as an organisation. Their decisions inform Woodcraft Folk activity and policy for groups, districts, General Council and the staff.

What is the Woodcraft Way?

Has your group ever wondered what the 'Woodcraft Way' actually is? Invite people to discuss what they think it means, and then to write a poem or song to explore or explain it. You could use the poem below as inspiration - it was written by one of the parents at Sheffield District's Gradbach camp in 2010.

Survey of Woodcraft groups

34 Woodcraft groups responded to the challenge of TREE’s end-of-year survey in 2009. It’s one of the ways we’re working out how much impact the TREE programme is having, and this first survey was also simply a way to hear what groups are doing and what they want support with. There were some interesting answers, all of which are in the report downloadable below.

A Circle of Equality

Words of Freedom

This song was written by young people at Woodcraft Folk's Development Conference in January 2011. It's sung to the tune of 'Let it be'.

When I find myself in times of trouble,
Woodcraft Folk empowers me.
Speaking words of freedom,
Let it be.
And in the face of waving batons,
We’ve friendship, peace and unity.
Speaking words of freedom,
Let it be.

Let it be… [x4]
Speaking words of freedom, let it be.
[Repeat]

Spelthorne Action Project

Young Woodcraft members from Spelthorne introduced their project, saying “there is a lot of negative press in the national news and in the local press about young people, and we wanted to show ... what we could do as a group. We think young people are generally very concerned about their community and it is only the minority of negative actions that get reported more often than the positive actions of young people.”
