Mini MOOT 2021

What is Mini MOOT?

Typically, MOOT is an biannual weekend long lightweight camp for Senior Guides and Olave Members. However due to the uncertain circumstances we find ourselves in at the moment, the Olave Committee have created a Mini MOOT!

Mini MOOT will be focusing on brining outside lightweight camping inside, and getting ready to take the inside lightweight camping outside once we are able to go camping again.
