    My little cherubs (Chaos and Mayhem, aged 7) have asked me if there will be any other little chilluns to have adventures with on the pirate ship, and hang out on the swings.

    Going on previous moots I would be shocked if there wasn't there weren't a large contingent of suitable playmates for them to choose from Windy

    Generally the kids form a large and unruly mob that run around the woods until exhausted.

    It's looming marvellous! How childhood should be.

    Aye. We've been before though 'moot was later in the summer. Our schools break much earlier so I was wondering if that would have any bearing on bairns going.

    Yip I agree. How it should be. Hence bringing them.

    The moot starts at the start of the holidays, some might miss the first day or two but there will soon be stacks of them playing around the place :D

    Devastatingly accurate. They may zip by your camp at mealtimes.

    Hi there! It'll be our first year and we're only bringing number 2, aged 8, other one is on a scout camp and a bit gutted now. We will arrive on the Saturday for core days but a few extra days after for 'relaxation'. Sounds right up our street with the mob thing! Is there a general place of congregation the kids gravitate to before they go off on adventures? Really excited to be going and thoroughly looking forward to meeting other people who think should be running in the wilderness not under constant supervision!

    There is the pirate ship where loads of kids congragete/play as well as an area outside toilet blocks which had a rope swing.

    Just in case any one who has not been to BushMoot is reading and worried about all these kids that seem to be running around, it was my first last year and while there was what seemed like a huge number of kids, they were never a problem. Brought a smile to my face to see them having fun. With the exception of what looked like a maybe 8 year old young lady walking past dangling a blood stained rabbit, calm as you like!

    in previous years we've had >12 under eight in our group down past the ship. they all get up well early (about dawn) so we kept away from the naughty corner. that way one lot noisy at night the other in the am and we all meet in the middle.

    all good fun.

    Seeing all the kids in the Moot promo photo's kinda puts a bit of a dampener on my thoughts of moot attendance, one year i am sure i will attend regardless of the army of little humons kicking about
