Greetings all!

We are very excited by the first in-person Æthelmearc Æcademy since 2019!  The Shire of Coppertree is graciously hosting us at Camp Kingsley in Ava, NY on June 18th 2022.  We have a wide array of classes ready for you, so come out and learn new things!

A preliminary schedule and class list are now available on the Æthelmearc Æcademy website

PLEASE NOTE some classes require additional fees for materials or that you bring your own supplies, so be prepared if you are interested in taking those classes.

Schedule for the day is as follows:

  • Site opens at 9:00am
  • Their Majesties will be holding a short court at 9:30am
  • Classes will run 10:00am to noon
  • Lunch break from noon to 1:00pm (bag lunches provided by Duchess Rowan and the Coppertree cooks, and you must preregister for the lunch)
  • Classes 1:00pm to 4:30pm
  • Royal Court at 5:00pm

Additional event information can be found here.

The site is a boy scout camp so the classes are spread out through various buildings and grounds. If you need assistance finding your classroom let us know! All of the classroom buildings have electricity, and all of the classrooms will have bottled water for general use. The tap water in the camp is from a well-regulated spring-fed lake so it is also quite potable.

Current COVID policy for the Kingdom of Æthelmearc (and we do not expect this to change anytime soon) is that everyone over the age of 2, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask indoors.

All of the classrooms with the exception of the War College are indoors and, therefore, EVERYONE over the age of 2 INCLUDING TEACHERS MUST BE MASKED FOR THE DURATION OF EACH CLASS.  The classrooms will have signs reminding attendees of this fact.

We know this might be difficult to manage but we are the SCA and courtesy dictates that we follow policy, and that we are patient with the difficulties this may present. We would recommend that you each bring one or more masks, and a straw to allow you to drink out of a bottle or mug without needing to remove your mask.

You must also eat out of doors, but the autocrat has assured us that there are plenty of tables in the various open structures and porches to allow for this.

Teachers are allowed to move classes outside if permitted by the weather and class structure.

Please feel free to contact either the Æcademy staff or the autocrat, Baron Snorri skyti Bjarnarsson, if you have any questions.

We look forward to seeing all of you on the 18th!

Fridrikr, Orianna, and Beatrix
Chancellors of the Æcademy and War College
