To coincide with the centenary of the founding of the first British woodcraft group, this article explores a century of escaping to the woods. Outlining the utopian ambitions of the Order of Woodcraft Chivalry, the Kindred of the Kibbo Kift, and the Woodcraft Folk, the article frames these historic experiments in living within the longstanding desire to reform children's lives through outdoor experiences.
