The BushMoot is very child friendly. The woods and dunes are great to play in – if they’re not playing with new friends at the Fort or Pirate Ship.
All Children are always the responsibility of their parents or guardian.
Knives and edged tools should not be carried by anyone under the age of 16 unless they are with their parent or guardian. Any unchaperoned youth or children under 16 years old will have the knife or edged tool confiscated.
After 9:30pm all children need to be with their parents or guardians, it's getting dark around this time and to make sure the kids are safe they should be with those responsible for them. It's also considerate for others camping on the site if noise can be kept low from this time onwards.
The site is a great place for kids to play and have fun, it's secluded and the only people on site are those attending the Moot. There's sand and woods to play in and all the children that have attended the Moot love being there.
We have a knife safety workshop specially aimed at children to help you educate them, the responsibility is yours if you let them use a knife or any other edged tool.
You need to make sure that your children are acting responsibly and playing safe, pointy sticks etc are fine around your camp but not when they're waved at other kids so please make sure your children understand this.
The key to their safety is that you know where they are and what they're doing.
Lost children will be taken to the reception area if needed. It's a good idea with the younger ones to have their names on them somewhere and something so that we can identify parents.
Don't worry, it really doesn't happen very often.
Any workshops put on for children need their parents with them while attending. We do not have any workshops where the instructors take on responsibility for the children. Therefore if there's not a parent or guardian available at this time then the child cannot attend the workshop.
