All About… Harrow Woodcraft Folk

The Harrow Woodcraft Folk is defined as the London Borough of Harrow. Harrow Woodcraft Folk meets weekly, enjoying a varied programme including games, drama, craftwork, singing and dancing, as well as following an educational programme based on our aims and principles. Hiking, hostelling, camping and other outdoor activities are also undertaken at weekends or during summer holidays.

Harrow Woodcraft Folk operates currently with four groups and they are as follows, Woodchips group for pre-school aged children, Elfins aged 6-9,Pioneer’s aged 10-12, Venturer’s are aged 13-15 and the DF’s are 16-21. The young people and adults/leaders over that age are collectively known as Kin’s Folk. Harrow Woodcraft Folk operates within the London Borough of Harrow.

Each group meets up for an average 1.5 hours a week. Each group works to a program that is produced by the leaders. All groups are mixed. All groups work towards the aims and principles of the Woodcraft Folk.

Harrow Woodcraft Folk have four camps a year and participate in trips for all groups. Such activities include Hiking, Swimming, Ice Skating, Picnics and France. There are some activities where the different groups participate together. There are activities whereby we meet other districts from all over the country.

The Camping Season is from May-Oct. This is a major part of our organisation and the emphasis is on the children and young people to participate in camping. We Camp for the weekend locally and also go further a field. We participate in national events such as International Camp every four years and this gives the young people a chance to meet people from all over the world.
