Archery, longsword demonstrations and a grand banquet will be
part of an inaugural medieval children's camp near Mosgiel.
The King's Wood Medieval Camp will be held from October 2-5
at Tirohanga Camp.
It has been organised by Taieri College teacher Adrienne
Alexander in conjunction with the Otago Association for
Gifted Children and the Dunedin Medieval and Renaissance
Mrs Alexander said she had organised other children's camps
and wanted to share her passion for medieval activities.
The $200 cost covered accommodation, food, classes in drama,
music, archery, games, creative writing, arts and crafts,
heraldry and calligraphy, and longsword demonstrations,
quests and battles.
On October 4, there would be a pot-luck banquet, to which
family members of camp participants were invited.
• The camp is open to children 8-13. To book, email Mrs
Alexander on firstname.lastname@example.org.
