About Woodcraft Folk

Woodcraft Folk is a movement for children and young people. 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.

Every week thousands of Woodcraft volunteers and young people meet in school halls, community venues and a host of other places to learn about big ideas through fun activities like singing, playing and debating.

Our aim is to have great fun, but also to try and develop children’s self-confidence and build their awareness of society around them.

You can find out more about Woodcraft Folk at our website www.woodcraft.org.uk
