Pennsic University requires adult supervision of minors attending classes

Mistress Chai’usun, Deputy Mayor for Cultural Affairs, PW 39, announced on July 6 that anyone under age 18 will need to be accompanied by "a responsible adult designated by the the parent" when attending classes in Pennsic A&S tents.

The policy specifically exempts "designated Youth Activities" in which other SCA policies already provide for adult supervision of the activity, as well as general public areas of Pennsic that are covered by the overall Pennsic youth policies.

Responding to questions and concerns from the populace, Mistress Chai later published an Open Letter elaborating on the decision and how the policy will be applied.

Both the original announcement and Mistress Chai's followup letter are linked below.
