Pioneers are aged 9 - 12. If you're looking for activities for younger children, or older young people, you might find plenty of these are suitable, with a bit of adaptation to the needs of your group. 

Our Times: campaign activities for Venturers

 

 

Our Times is the new campaign from young people around Woodcraft Folk, who want to give other young people a platform to be heard on social and political issues including war. The aim is to enable young people to educate each other on the issues they care about, and enable wider society to hear and respect young people's views.

We've put together a range of activities to get your Venturer group thinking about society and what they care about most in it. Download the PDF below.

 

International Negotiations and unfair resource distribution

Time taken: 30 minutes to play and at least 15 minutes for reflection.

This game is designed to simulate international negotiations. It is based on "Prisoners Dilema" type experiments from economics. 

Weapons of War

A game exploring war and the arms trade, run by Angus at CoCamp.

Aims & Principles Outcomes Matrix

A successful programme for a Woodcraft group will include a range of activities inspired by our Aims & Principles. To help translating these big ideas into something that group leaders can put into practice, experienced Woodcraft leaders working with every age group have contributed to the creation of a set of age-appropriate outcomes linked to the Aims & Principles.
