What is Woodcraft?

Woodcraft is a philosophy of life, a different approach to the outer world and a method of creating a personal inner world.

Recreation, conservation, and the development of avocation are its goals. It stresses outdoor life and activity.

Woodcraft is not just working with wood, it’s living in the woods or any natural environment with joy, safety, and comfort.

As we were researching the folks who really put together the idea of living in the woods for fun and for personal development, we came across an amazing man. His name is Ernest Thompson Seton. Beginning in the 1800’s, with his love of the outdoors and his skill as a naturalist and an artist, he developed a way of learning about the wilderness and a way of learning about ourselves in the process. He called it the Woodcraft Way.
