Welcome to SpanThatWorld.com! The online home of the District Fellows Movement, the 16-20 age group of the cooperative children and young people's charity The Woodcraft Folk.
DFs (& Friends) go walking in Wales
Lily Bowler and Zoë Fidler are planning to go to Wales 8-13th August to climb Mount Snowdon and surrounding hills/mountains. We do not want to organise a massive event, but would love for you to join us, therefore not being liable for problems/food for everyone.
DISCLAIMER: This is not an offical DF event. (Therefore there is no need for any rules apart from the ones the Campsite has and the law)
Lily Bowler & Zoë Fidler to organise
Anyone really is welcome, focusing more on DF age but anyone older or younger can come(but only if your parents let you) You don’t even have to be a woodcraft member/goer
Invite and bring ALL the people.
We will look up a few walks, (one being up Mount Snowdon) and will lead them unless someone else wants to help.
- There is the best ice cream shop in the world 5 miles from the campsite (I did go to this many years ago so may not still be there, but it was so amazing I don’t see why they would have closed).
- There is a story with a walk about the beddgelert dog near the ice cream shop
- There is a lake at the campsite which canoes can be hired out at or I think we can swim in.
- There will be DFs and other awesome people so a make-shift massage workshop and chilling out sessions are a definite

Lily will be there from the 9th till the 13th August, Zoe will be there 7th till the 11th, come for what time period you want/can, even stay till after the 13th or before the 7th if you like!
Mountains, walking, relaxing, canoeing, lakes, music, fire, Woodcraft; why on earth not?
Train Station: Portmadog, Penrhundeudraeth, Minffordd or Llandecwyn, are the closest and all realitvely close together.
Bus: The summer timetable is not avaible yet but will go past the site/very closehttp://www.gwynedd.gov.uk/
Food & water:
Anyone that comes will have to cater for themselves or in small groups, there is a shop/pub a short trek away but it would be much easier to buy all the food you will need before you come, the bus stop is less than 20minutes away I think 0.5 of a mile.
There are water taps on site of course.
The campsite sell firewood so tins of beans & bread = beans on toast.
Just look at this view.
There is no need to pre-book, (I have warned the campsite) When you get to the campsite you need to go book at the reception and state you are woodcraft and the Rachel said you can have the scout rate
Please show on the facebook event if you are coming, just so I can have an idea and then know if I need to warn the campsite further than 20 people. http://www.facebook.com/events/380220512002095/
