Christmas Challenge: Adventures for All

Adventures are for everyone – donate this Christmas to give a child a Woodcraft Folk adventure!

We’re fundraising for Adventures for All, to support more children and young people to take part in Woodcraft Folk camps and adventurous activities. During the Christmas Challenge campaign (28th November-5th December), every donation to Adventures for All will be doubled! 

Our goal is to raise £15,000, with the help of our match funder, the Reed Foundation. We’ll be spending it on discounted camp places; volunteer training; residential centre upkeep; and more. We want to do everything we can to reduce financial and geographical barriers to attending Woodcraft Folk camps, so that children and young people with the most to gain can benefit from our adventurous outdoor education. Sometimes that’s as simple as providing access funds to Pioneer Camp, but there are also bigger changes we need to make. We want to reach out to new communities with Camps for All from Scotland to the Way Valley to London; provide residential training for group volunteers in new districts; and improve accessibility and reduce carbon emissions at our centres.

Young people across the UK want more opportunities to have adventures away from home (DCMS Youth Review 2021), and want to do more to look after the environment (Children’s People and Nature Survey for England 2022). Aside from being fun and educational, we know that after accessing outdoor learning experiences, children and young people are better at working together, more confident, and happier (Adventures Away from Home 2023). Since 2020, that’s become all the more important, as we have seen mental health issues rise sharply in children and young people, and for 17-19-year-olds the figures keep rising (NHS Digital 2022). Woodcraft Folk residentials and camps are a brilliant answer to these problems for many young people. Each trip funded by this campaign is an adventure for a child who otherwise would not be able to attend, full of co-operative play, social action, environmental & peace education.

Woodcraft Folk aims to host 30,000 night stays in 2024: by donating this Christmas, you can help more children have the adventure of a lifetime.
