Pennsic University Youth Policy


In classes, youths under 12 need to bring supervision; youth over 12 are OK, as long as it is not an "adults only" class or they get rowdy. In private camps, all minors need to bring their legal guardian.

Youths under 12 years of age must be accompanied at all times by a parent or responsible adult or teenager in all University venues. Unaccompanied minors 12 years or older may attend classes in University venues so long as the classes are not registered as "adults only" and they behave in a respectful attentive manner.

In all University sponsored classes in private camps or merchant booths, all minors under 18 MUST be accompanied at all times by a parent or court appointed legal guardian. This category includes classes at "Touch the Earth" and Æthelmearc Royal.

No minors will be permitted in "Adults only" classes, with the exception of infants in arms at the Teacher's discretion.

Pennsic University does not sponsor any "youth oriented" or "youth only" classes. All such classes are scheduled and overseen through Youth Point.

Any questions or situations outside of this policy will be decided on a one by one basis as needed by University staff and/or the Mayor's Office.
