The Great Outdoors Experience!

The Bushmoot is an opportunity for individuals and families with an interest in Bushcraft to gather together and expand their knowledge through mutual skills and knowledge sharing. 

It doesn’t matter whether you are experienced or new to Bushcraft, everyone is welcome.  The days either side of the ‘Core’ are camping days which give individuals the opportunity to practise their Bushcraft skills, attend courses, socialise, visit the local area or just relax and enjoy the natural setting. 

Below is the location of the BushMoot down the south end of Merthyr Mawr Rd, that runs from Bridgend through Merthyr Mawr to Candleston Castle
