I think Aeons hit the nail on the head.
As a Solitary Witch who usually celebrates the Sabbat festivals with a couple of fellow 'solitaries' up on the wild North Yorkshire Moors (we have a
specific sacred place that we go to) at daft'o'clock at night we have often wondered what people would think if they stumbled upon us
And whilst we are especially careful to clear up after ourselves there are the inevitable odd hints of our visit left behind ... not least the dark
stains left by the candles we have burnt in our circle (even though we removes the wax residue there is a mark left behind by the oil in the candles).
So I think you may well have come across a Pagan Sacred Space ... and if some members of thet circle saw a bunch of kids mooching about they would
justifiably be sensitive to the intrusion ... but that doesn't mean they were up to no good.
On the other hand they may have been Devil Worshippers with a sacrificial blood lust ... in which case you may have had a lucky escape
Either way I guess you'll never know ... but the moral of the story and the lesson to heed ... if you ever come across something similar and you
suspect it may be a place of Occult practice (good or bad) ... it is best to walk in the opposite direction ... it's only good manners ... after all
I doubt you would have been happy if they'd just started wandering around your camp uninvited
