Minors Attending Great Northeastern War

Parents/guardians remain responsible for their children at all times while at SCA functions.

Parents must not expect other adults to supervise, monitor, or otherwise control children who are wandering unaccompanied at events. Parents/guardians may arrange for a responsible adult or older teen to supervise young children when necessary.

Youth officers acting in their official capacity are not to be considered the sole supervision for children who require direct supervision as defined in this document.

Children under the age of 10 must be within voice range or in sight of a responsible adult or teenager at all times.

Inappropriate behavior of any sort by a minor will be dealt with in the manner deemed most appropriate in accordance with modern, corporate or kingdom law as applicable.

For a minor to attend an event accompanied by an adult who is not their legal guardian, the responsible adult must be in possession of an SCA waiver and a medical treatment waiver signed by the guardian. The waivers can be found on the SCA website here: http://www.sca.org/resources/document-library/

If you have any questions about this policy, or about what may serve as proof of guardianship, please contact the Event Steward.

Learn more about activities designed for children on the Youth Activities page.

If you are attending GNEW with minors that are not your legal children, you will need to have their parent or legal guardian fill out the following forms prior to attending the event:

Minor Waiver Form – this form will need to be left at gate.

Medical Authorization for Minors – this form should stay with the minor at all times.
