Woodcraft Folk Scotland

Charity registered in Scotland SC039791

Woodcraft Folk are a UK wide voluntary organisation and a registered educational charity. We run groups for children and young people from toddlers to teenagers. Groups meet weekly (school term time) and go on daytrips and overnight hostelling and camping trips at weekends and school holidays. Groups do a wide range of activities including games, crafts, cooking and drama. The organisation has an emphasis on outdoor activity including exploring nature, and bushcraft.

At our groups children and young people have fun, make friends and develop confidence. We encourage them to celebrate and question the world they live in. We aim for our activities to raise awareness of local and global issues, and promote co-operation, social justice and environmental sustainability.
