At Woodcraft Folk we believe passionately in equality and co-operation – everyone is welcome to join our groups.
Every week thousands of 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.
Through our activities, outings and camps we help our members understand important issues like the environment, world debt and global conflict and, in recent years, we have focused on sustainable development.
By encouraging children to think, we hope they will help build a peaceful, fairer world.
Are you looking for a structured, learning based group to attend with your 2-5 year old?
Located right next to a wood where they can learn about nature first hand?
The Southend & Castle Point Woodcraft Folk are excited to announce the launch of a new Woodchip group, starting Thursday 8th September 2011 at 9.45 a.m. in St. Michael's Hall, Daws Heath.
What will we be doing?
Woodchips is where the Woodcraft Folk starts, with our youngest members who are under six. At Woodchips we play games, tell stories, sing songs and make things, and in warmer weather we go camping. So much like any other toddler group you may think... What's the difference?
Introducing Woodcraft Folk values
We try to choose activities that help our youngest members begin to absorb some of the ethos of the Woodcraft Folk - equality, cooperation, peace and friendship.
Parents join in too
We encourage parents & carers to get involved in our activities, either by just being with the child, or getting involved with the planning or if they want to by taking on an active role in the group. But there will be no pressure on you to do anything more than turn up and have fun!
We encourage the children to play and learn collectively - this is one place where they don't have to be the best, the fastest or the smartest. Every child is valued equally and this helps the children learn to practice fairness themselves.
If you want to know more about the group, or the activities please contact us on
