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?

Outline Task Lists for Volunteers

Below are concise list of tasks for volunteer roles in Woodcraft Folk Groups and Districts, necessary to function at what is currently considered best practice.

Case study: the role of 'Meeter and Greeter'

Your Park Farm

Voluteering at the Farm

It is important to remember that this is YOUR site too, Park Farm runs entirely through the work of volunteers from across the London and SE region, both those serving on the committee and those who turn up to help at our working weekends. A BIG thank you to all those who have contributed in the past, it really is appreciated. It would be great to have a few more people along though as many hands makes light work!

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.
