A winter camp in Finland - Feb 02

High above the Arctic Circle, about 20 Woodcraft Folk members from Cheltenham and Gloucester, mostly Pioneers and Venturers, travelled to the north of Finland in February and experienced a magical winter wonderland. Our story starts in summer 2001 at the Woodcraft Folk International Camp in the Sherwood Forest. Cheltenham and Gloucester ran a village and hosted a group from Finland and a group from Portugal. As often happens at such events friendships are made and our Finnish friends invited us to 'camp' with them the following spring.
