Pioneers are aged 9- 13.  We are a busy group, full of fun and energy. We enjoy playing games, making dens and being creative. We embrace the Woodcraft Folk  Aims and Principles Read them here: APP 2007

We have three groups who meet weekly

  • Woodgrange Rodsloch Pioneers, Wednesdays, in Forest Gate, from 6.15 – 7.45
  • Magpie Pioneers, Wednesdays, at the Lodge, Magpie Close, from 6.00pm – 7.15pm
  • Royal Docks Pioneers (contact Jack and Sasha at for more details)

We also regularly  go out for trips and residentials.

Based on the principles of co-operation, participation and friendship the group is run as a parent co-operative. We require all parents/carers of children attending to help out over the term. There are lots of ways to do this and they don’t have to be on a group night or involve face to face work with the children and young people. For more information about this do speak to Suzannah.

If you are interested in your child joining any of the Pioneer groups or you have a query about the groups please contact us via
