Welcome intrepid adventurers!

The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA)'s largest historical re-enactment event will take place this year from July 28 to August 13, 2023. It's the 50th anniversary of this "Pennsic War" gathering, where roughly 10,000 historical enthusiasts from around the world come to camp, socialize, teach, and learn about life as it was lived between the years 600 to 1600 CE. We do our best to make everyone feel welcome.

This year I'll be running a new daily program for teens (and youth 10+) called the Known World Adventurers Guild. Watch this website for more details as we get closer to Pennsic!

More info will be available here at on July 1.

For now, here are the basics:

Guildmistress Marian of Heatherdale invites you to join KWAG (the Known World Adventurers Guild) at Pennsic 50. Her noble company of young explorers will gather information through supervised in-person walks around the Pennsic site. Who knows who you'll meet... Visiting royalty? One of the SCA's Founders? Someone from the esteemed Cooper Family? Come and find out. KWAG activities run throughout both weeks, and alternate between KWAG Walk Days and KWAG Social Days. All activities begin and end at Family Point. Everyone is welcome!

Please note: this is an active class. The group will be walking to various public locations on the Pennsic site (no private camps). All participants should wear sturdy shoes, a hat and sunscreen, and bring water.
