TREE programme

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.”

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. 

Opportunities for young people

Young people already take on loads of different roles in Woodcraft Folk. If you're doing something interesting - maybe organising an event, helping run a younger group or representing Woodcraft Folk at an external event - we'd love to hear about it.

If you've decided now is the time to see what else is out there to do in Woodcraft Folk, have a look at the opportunities below and let TREE know if any of them take your fancy. 

 

Choose It, Plan it, Do it!

What is this resource?

Choose it, Plan it, Do it! is a Woodcraft Folk activity pack containing a selection of ideas and tools for gathering ideas, planning and making decisions in groups of all ages. The pack is divided into three parts, with subsections. Each section is packed full of useful activities to make planning and decision making as a group easy, fun, inclusive and inventive.
