For almost 100 years, Woodcraft Folk groups have enjoyed camping and residential trips as part of their programme.
Woodcraft Folk has a number of brilliant outdoor centres waiting to be used. For children and young people, a weekend away in one of our centres or at other locations can often be one of the most exciting and memorable parts of their engagement with Woodcraft Folk.
An overnight trip can support adults and young people to get to know each other better as well as helping to promote a cooperative and sharing approach whilst creating a temporary community living together.
It is essential for safety and enjoyment that overnight trips should be well planned, prepared and thought about – browse the pages and resources below to support you in planning and delivering a safe, engaging and enjoyable camp or residential.
