Woodcraft Folk’s groups cater to children and young people of all ages. While all our groups are underpinned by the same aims and principles, we explore these in an age-appropriate way through our different age ranges. As they progress through the organisation, young people grow in confidence and will have more opportunities to shape their group’s activities.

We are Woodcraft Folk and we understand and respect our one world
