Can I bring another person's child to an East Kingdom event?
Yes.  The way our current policies are written, all youths at events must attend with a parent, guardian, or responsible adult designated by the parent or legal guardian.  If a person brings any child to an event, they are responsible for seeing to the child's safety, well-being, and behavior.
All children under the age of five should be supervised at all times by their parents/guardians or a responsible adult or older teen.  Youth between the ages of 5 and 12 must be within sight and sound range of their parent / guardian /responsible adult / teen supervisor at all times.  Walkie-talkies and cell phones do not extend the sight / sound range.

If I am bringing my niece, nephew, grandchild, or friend of the family what do I need to bring with me?
Any child attending an event with a person other than their parent or legal guardian must turn in signed copies of the following two forms at the Gate:  the waiver form for minors, and the medical authorization forms for minors.  Both of these forms are available on the East Kingdom Chancellor Minor website.


If a parent or legal guardian is not there, can the youth participate in youth combat activities?
No.  Youths may only participate in youth combat including fighting activities include armored combat (heavy weapons), fencing, combat archery, marshaling, scouting, youth combat, or banner bearing in combat if they have a parent or legal guardian present to directly witness the activity.

Camping Rules:
Camp only in designated areas.  Use existing fire pits or portable fire pits supplied by the camp.  No ground fires outside of an approved fire pit.  All fires must be attended and have properly filled fire buckets near the fire pit.  Firewood will be available from the camp at a cost, no cutting of live trees.  No liquid fuel or liquid fuel devices.  Motor vehicles must be parked in designated parking areas.  If you have special needs please contact the site autocrat.  At the end of the event fire pits must be cleaned and all trash must be sorted into dumpsters located in the parking lot. 

No cars in the camping area or on the battlefield!  Pickup and drop off locations will be posted.  Cars parked anywhere other than an authorized parking lot will be towed at the owner's expense.
