Greetings from the Family Activities Staff of the Pennsic War!
The deadline to submit classes for Pennsic that will appear in the site book is mere days away, on May 1st! The Family Activities department runs three separate tracks of classes and activities, and all three are still looking for teachers. Teachers do not have to be background checked, or have any specific youth qualifications, they just need enthusiasm for their subject and a willingness to teach. A second adult is helpful, but not required.
Family Point, focused on those aged under 10, is looking for teachers of hands on crafts, mostly for Peace Week slots. If you are not sure what to teach, we have pre-packaged activities ready to go, such as viking bead lacing and rune carving that just need a teacher.
Youth University, aimed at those 9-14, and located at the playground, is looking for SCA history, persona specific, and hands on classes targeted to tweens. We have openings during both Peace and War week.
Teen University, aimed at those 13-17, and located in the regular university area, is also looking for classes on SCA history, actual history, heraldry, sewing, other hands-on classes, and practically everything that adults are also interested in. Many teens also take classes at the regular university, however we provide a lower-stress entry point for those who need it. We have openings both weeks.
