Becoming a member of Woodcraft Folk

If you are regularly volunteering with our young people, going on a residential trip or one of our DFs (District Fellows) then you must become a member of Woodcraft Folk. Along with membership those aged 16 and over taking on a role of responsibility at group nights and or attending overnight stays and will need to complete a criminal record check for us. 

Membership also allows parents and carers to keep up to date with what we're doing as an organisation

We have a standard annual rate of £36.90 (waged full rate) for members and a concessionary annual rate of £12 for those members who are students (DFs) or on a low income. Payment can also be spread across the year by direct debit.

District Fellows can buy 5 year membership in advance at the age of 16 for £60. Great 16th birthday present, Parents? We think so.
