Venturers

Welcome to Venturers leaflet

Below you can download the Welcome to Venturers leaflet, which was created by young people in the TREE Communications Group to help anyone moving up from Pioneers into Venturers, or who has recently arrived in Venturers. 

The leaflet is A4 size, in two parts - the inside and the outside. Download them both and photocopy them so they're on each side of an A4 page. To make the leaflet, fold each of the side panels in, starting with the right one as you look at the inside. 

Transition Support - welcoming new group members

 

Take a look at the PDF below if you want ideas on how to help young people move from one age group to the next. Transition Support Ideas has activities for groups to do before, during and after the transition to try and make it as smooth as possible, and generally keep groups within a district in touch with each other. If you've got any good ideas to add to it, send them to tree@woodcraft.org.uk - we'd love to hear them.

Make a bird box

We did this with our venturer group

I pre prepared the components by sawing up some excess floorboards we had

The venturers then nailed it all together, producing one bird box each

See: http://www.bto.org/nnbw/make.htm

Nb I reckon the base should be 150x 150

Run an assembly at school

It can be quite a daunting thing to run an assembly, but it is a really good way to get a much wider group of people involved in the issues you might normally discuss at you Woodcraft Folk group. Doing it with some friends, other woodcraft folk members for example, can make it much easier, but whether you do it alone or with friends, hopefully you will find these tips useful.

Oxford Woodcraft Folk stall at the Green Fair

Event date: 
11 December 2010 - 10:30am - 4:30pm
Event location: 
Oxford Town Hall, St Aldates, Oxford

Oxford Woodcraft Folk will be at the Green Fair selling things that young people from our Venturers, Pioneers, Elfins and Woodchips groups have made.  This year the Woodchips will be making seasonal window decorations from mainly recycled materials with an added dollop of glue and glitter.  The money raised will be used to help a delegation from an economically poorer country join us on Co-Camp next summer.  We also use the opportunity to raise our profile locally.  Please come along and say hello!
