A parent/guardian/supervising adult/older teen will be required to stay with any child under the age of 10 at family point as well as throughout the event.

ANIMAL SEARCH: The goats are expected to be back this year on Friday and Saturday. There are also rumors of bunny rabbits on the loose! We will need your help to search out these animals and gather them together before they cause havoc in the camps! Seekers and Relocation Agents will need to sign up at Family Point to participate in the Animal Search Game

ACTIVITY BLOCKS: Family point will offer various 2 hour activity blocks throughout the event. During each block there will be teachers and activities available offering themed activities within a category such as heraldry, paper crafts, weaving, embroidery and more. These activity blocks will have 2 or more activities in each theme and are fluid to allow families to come and go during that time period. We encourage late arrivals! Activity block themes will be posted at Family Point.

TEEN TIME ACTIVITIES: Volunteers needed! There will be activities specifically for the teens, such as a Meet and Greet on Thursday evening. Activity details and times will be posted at Family Point.

YOUTH A&S: Many A&S classes held at the A&S tents are family friendly. Check the class description, it will tell you if it is not appropriate for specific ages. If you aren’t sure, ask the teacher! Family Point will have scheduled classes, as well various A&S DIY projects available to grab any time Family Point is open. Check the schedule for more information.

GARB CLOSET: Please bring your kids outgrown lightly used garb over to family point and trade it in for a size that fits. We currently have a limited selection, and it is a first come first serve basis.


YOUTH IN THE MARTIAL ARTS

YOUTH ARCHERY: Ongoing, throughout the weekend, the Archery range welcomes youth over the age of 5 whenever the range is open. Please speak with a marshal about proper supervision. All archery shoots are open to archers of all ages and abilities. Stop by the Archery Field at any time it is open.

YOUTH FENCING: If your child is interested in Youth Fencing please stop by Family Point at any time throughout the event and we will do what we can to get you in touch with a Youth Fencing Marshal.

YOUTH THROWN WEAPONS: Whether you are new to thrown weapons or an experienced arm, thrown weapons is available for people of all ages. No authorizations are necessary, and the range is open to anyone age 5 and older. Youths between the ages of 5 and 17 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian while the child is throwing — no exceptions. The adult accompanying the youth must be the parent or legal guardian, not another family member or friend. This will be strictly enforced. Stop by the Thrown Weapons Range when it is open.  The 5 and under throwing event will be held at FAMILY POINT this year. Check the schedule when it comes out.

YOUTH COMBAT: Youth Combat will be centered at FAMILY POINT, with multiple activities throughout the event. Youth Combat activity listing is listed separately and will be posted at Family Point.
