a shipload of bloody-thirsty Vikings descended upon the monastery on the isle of Lindisfarne off the coast of Northumbria, and the Viking Age began!
Our most popular camp has always been our Viking camp, and this year we’re gonna make it even better. Gone are all the cardboard helmets and shields. This year, we’re going COLD STEEL!
Join our FearLess Viking scholar and leader, Steve Bivans on an adventure where you’ll learn about Viking history and culture, about dragon ships and raiding parties, about massive sieges and bloody battles, and make your own, Real Viking Shield! That means a heavy wooden shield with a Cold Steel Boss!
You’ll also learn to throw javelins, march and fight in a shield wall,and the rules and techniques of Viking dueling! AND, you’ll get to throw a cold steel Viking Axe!
Just like Vance the Viking!
Handle Real Swords and Weapons!
And at the end of the week, you’ll get to do something you’re never gonna do in any other camp on Earth: handle a REAL VIKING SWORD, and several other early medieval swords, axes, and cool stuff. These are NOT REPLICAS.
The Viking Sword is from the 9th-10th century. It is over 1000 years old, and you’re gonna hold it in your hand!
Oh yeah, Mom n Dad can come on the last day and handle them, too! And take pictures of you in your shiny new Spangenhelm!
What are you waiting for, Thor?
Jump aboard NOW! Before the ship pulls out! There’s only so much room on this expedition!
