This from Southampton Woodcraft Folk in their own words.

Southampton Woodcraft Folk is a local children’s and young people’s group which meets weekly during term time, as well as having regular camps in the holidays. As well as having bags of fun with activities like craft, singing and games, the focus is on big ideas like co-operation, peace, democracy, equality, internationalism and looking after the planet.

The group is part of a 92 year-old national organisation, now a registered charity, which in turn is part of the International Falcon Movement. It is inclusive, open to all regardless of religion or ability, has girls and boys together and is committed to positive social change.

As a co-operative, it involves young people at all levels from its general council down to planning local group activities.

We are keen to welcome children, young people and their families to join us. Children and parents are welcome to come along to a group session to find out more about what we do. We are a parent/guardian led organisation and all adults running sessions have DBS checks. We ask for a donation of £22 per term to help with the cost of venues and activities, though we can be flexible with siblings attending and if money is tight.

Our groups meet in City Centre for 'Elfins' (6-9 years) in Bitterne Park for ‘Pioneers’ (10-12 years) and a new ‘Venturers’ (13-15 years) is due to start also in the Bitterne Park area.

If you want to find out more you can contact Maria on 023 8023 3207 or email her on   This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it . You can also find us on Facebook southamptonWoodcraftfolk or via our national website www.woodcraftfolk.org.uk where you can find out more about the organisations aims and principles.
