Youth activities have been divided into two main areas. Please check the web site and announcement boards for schedules and places.
We have added a 15 minute period before and after sessions to allow for pick up and drop off of children. Please do not abuse this privilege! Any children that have not been picked up by 12:15PM and 4:15PM will be turned over to security.
• Morning sessions: 9:30 AM- 12 PM
• Afternoon sessions: 1:30 PM – 4 PM
Please stop by any time to volunteer. Each session requires a minimum of 5 adult volunteers. Adequate volunteer staffing ensures we can provide activities to the maximum number of children.
Young Apprentice Series Ages 12-17
Check the class schedules and watch the herald’s board for classes. Teens should look through the main class schedule for topics that interest them. Teachers who welcome younger students have marked their classes as such. Also, keep an eye out for special hands on sessions at Artisan’s Row especially designed for teens.
Page School Ages 5-12
Gulf Wars Page School offers classes on a wide assortment of medieval and SCA topics presented in a fun and often hands-on manner. Snacks are not offered (water is), and children should not bring toys or personal items to class. The Gulf Wars Page School should be compatible with all Kingdom and Local Page Schools. If you have any questions, please contact the Youth Activities Staff.
Page School accepts ages 5-12, Tuesday through Friday at the Page School tent. Children must be signed in by parent or guardian.
