Youth Services

Per pale purpure and argent, two roundels counterchanged

The SCA is not just for adults, there is space for youth as well. We put forth interesting activities at
events; primarily for ages 4-11, but sometimes teens as well. We encourage anyone with children to
come look and see what fun can be had with a younger view on events.

Pages’ Academy is our longstanding organization to help bring children into the world of the SCA.
There are no badges but there are beads, given for good works and (sometimes) hard study. With
enough beads the pages rise through the ranks to become Senior Pages, and eventually graduate
from the Academy. Children ages 5 to 17 can become pages.

We welcome parents to help their children while they are at children’s activities. Adult volunteers are
also welcome. Donations of materials or activities (like games) should go to your local youth officer.
In the future there will be a listing, assisting people in locating the closest youth officer.

If you want to learn more about volunteering, please contact Rebbah Thamira for more details. As an
organization the Kingdom of Atlantia follows the “two deep” rule for safety. That is each activity must
have two adults not related by love, blood, or residence to assist in supervision of the youth. This
does not mean that these two adults are responsible for watching children – we are not babysitters.
