Encampment at the Castle V

Encampment at the Castle is a weekend camping event held on the beautiful grounds of an old laid-stone reformatory that is being turned into a museum, and which looks somewhat like a castle. This facility was the site for the on-location scenes in the movie The Shawshank Redemption (rent the movie and look at the flyover shot during the opening credits!).

Activities will include an armored Pas de Armes, rapier, and boffer combat, archery and thrown weapons.
