Youth Classes:


Protocol and Precedence for Youth. So why do SCA adults often have a title in front of their name? What do they all mean? What is a peerage and why do people want one? And after we discuss titles, I’ll have some fun period games to try out.


Make your own bardic story and have some puppets to go along with it. We’ll create a short SCA type bardic tale together, and maybe even perform it.


Crossroads by the Water, you need a good boat to travel and trade. Just how did people get cargo and people over the water? Explore the principles of buoyancy discovered by the ancient Greeks. Make your own boat and we’ll see if they float (kids may get a bit wet, I’ll have some towels)
