Gleann Abhann Law Regarding Children

Gleann Abhann: Section 9.05 Children

(a) Any child under the age of legal consent attending any official function, must be in the company of a parent or legal guardian or have a letter of parental consent which designates an adult in attendance as responsible for the child and consent for the child to be treated in the case of a medical emergency, as well as a signed standard waiver.

(b) All waivers and letters of designation must be collected by the Autocrat or designated representative before a child may be admitted to site.

(c) The adult in charge of a child is responsible for any and all acts of the child.

(d) Children under the age of 12 must be within the sight or voice range of a designated adult, or responsible teenager – age 15 or older, at all times. Failure to do so may result in sanctions ranging from expulsion from site to notification of mundane authorities.

Sight or voice range will be determined by the Gulf Wars Staff. We realize that this is not necessarily the law in other kingdoms, but it is the law here and it will be enforced.

Page School Schedule for Gulf Wars 2020, Ages 5-12

Page School is NOT a babysitting service. We encourage all parents to volunteer at some point during the week. Even an hour of your time makes the school so much more enjoyable for the children.

Page School is available during 9-11 and 1-3 for children 5 and up. Sign-in begins at 8:45 and at 12:45. Please pick up your child on time. Children left after the close of a class will be taken to Watch and the Autocrats notified. Please be on time and watch for changes. All Page School changes to the schedule will be posted on the chalk board next to the Page School Tent. Questions & Concerns, please see THL Marjory de Warenne (Lisa Phillips) or email YouthActivities@gulfwars.org

Note: We have a 15-minute period before and after sessions to allow for drop-off and pick-up of children. Please do not abuse this privilege!

  • Morning sessions: 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM
  • Afternoon sessions: 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Teen Activities are available in The Crow’s Nest Monday thru Friday to teens ages 13-18. In addition to activities listed here, teens should pay close attention to the Class Schedule for classes available to teens. They will also be posted at The Crow’s Nest itself (Any questions may be emailed to the above email)

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.
