Children and Families

Something for Everybody!

Youth Activities are run by a Youth Activities Officer or Youth Combat Marshal, an adult who has undergone a back ground check and generously donates their time to plan and run great activities. Parents are encouraged to hang out and help. Activities include Mid-Evil board games, non combat activities like pool noodle jousting and tons of A&S geared just for our Youth. Contact the Chatelaine for more information on activities or how you can help!

The SCA is for everyone! We encourage families to explore everything we have to offer. Children 5 to 14 can participate in Youth Combat as shown at right. The armor requirements are heavy enough to be safe and light enough to be relatively inexpensive. Youth use foam "boffer swords" and rules vary based on Age group. Parents are required to sign a waiver and be present for their kids to compete. Parents are encouraged to become Marshals, all youth combat marshal's must pass a background check.
