Browse or search for themes, ideas and activities to inspire a programme for your group that brings Woodcraft Folk’s aims & principles to life!

The perfect programme will contain a range of different types of activities, and explore big ideas in ways that are fun and accessible to young people. As our young members get older, they’ll be able to take more responsibility for planning and leading their own activities, supported by our adult volunteers.

To help you find the right resources, you can look for activities by age group, topic or type, as well as resource packs produced by Woodcraft Folk and our partners. Alternatively you can search all resources by keyword below. Additional programme resources can also be found in the Resource Drive (login required).


Our digital archive of group activities – games, discussions, craft and more – searchable by age group, topic and type of activity.
