10 - 12 September 2021

The Mersey Moot is held annually for some 1000+ Explorer Scouts, Ranger Guides, Young Leaders and Network members at Tawd Vale.

Friday Night

On the Friday evening you will be asked to book in and set up camp. Later there will be a live band and disco in the marquee.

If you like you are welcome to come and setup your camp on the Thursday evening. If you wish to stop on the Thursday evening thats fine but please make arrangements directly with Tawd Vale campsite.

You'll need to make sure you have the forms required when you go to the booking office.


Saturday is the major activity session, starting at 10:00 am you can climb, abseil, canoe, shoot clay pigeons and you can even try your hand at archery or maybe you would like a try at Circus Skills or even have a go on the aerial runway, then there is Trampolineing or anything listed below!

For the less energetic there is always the opportunity to have a try at some old and some not so old crafts, or just take the time to stroll round the various displays. Call in at the Coffee Shop or the Snack Bar and make some new friends.

As the sun goes down, the lights go up for the Barn Dance. At 10:00pm the mood changes and we get ready for the climax of the evening the live DJ set.


Sunday is set aside for some light hearted activities including the SUPER MOOTER our very own version of It’s a Knockout (with MUD), many of Saturdays Activities and Crafts will continue. Prizes and Certificates are presented at the closing ceremony which brings the weekend to a Close.

Not a bad weekend for £39.00
