About Woodcraft

At Woodcraft Folk we believe passionately in equality and co-operation – everyone is welcome to join our groups.

Hackney is one of the largest Woodcraft Folk districts in the country.  We have groups for children aged 5-16 meeting weekly in several venues across the borough.  Groups are run by parents and volunteer leaders and encourage all of us 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.
