Glasgow Southside

Friendly Woodcraft Folk groups for children and young people in Glasgow Southside. We mainly meet in and around Shawlands and can be found in Queens Park when weather and daylight allows.

We enjoy a varied programme which includes games, crafts, singing, campfires, nature activities, bushcraft and having fun. We also enjoy camping, hold an annual hostel weekend and take part in national Woodcraft Folk events. We offer a place where children will grow in confidence, learn about the world and start to understand how to value our planet and each other.

Currently we have three active groups

Glasgow Southside Woodchips (under 6 year olds)

Glasgow Southside Elfins (6-9 year olds)

Glasgow Southside Pioneers / Venturers (10-14 year olds)

All the groups currently meet at the same place and time (Wednesday 5.30pm-6.45pm) each week, during term time. This means if you have children in different age groups the whole family can come along. It also means that a couple of times a term all groups combine providing a great opportunity for children of all ages to mix with each other.

If you are interested in your child attending our groups, would like to volunteer, or just want to find out more, please email us at
