Celebrate the power of volunteering!


This year it's all about the skills people use to volunteer. Where would Woodcraft be without the co-operation, camping, communication, and faciliation skills of our volunteers?

Why not use your autumn term to organise an event celebrating the people who help run your group and district?

Why volunteer with Woodcraft Folk?

Woodcraft Folk runs on the passion and energy of thousands of volunteers. With the support of regional and central resources, local Woodcraft groups decide their own programme and co-ordinate their own events and camps.

  • First steps - roles suitable for your first experience of volunteering in Woodcraft Folk
  • More involved - roles needing a bit more time and experience
  • Regular commitment - roles for those who've been volunteering for a while and want more responsibility
