Youth Parties & Groups

Give your child an unforgettable birthday or celebration! Transport your whole party back in time as they learn to the art of the rapier, longsword, quarterstaff, and all manner of knightly and renaissance skills. Our studio, which includes an interactive arms-and-armour museum, will provide a safe, exciting, and fun environment for kids and parents alike.

We offer three different packages so there’s something for everyone. Programs are available for kids aged 6 and up and parents are allowed to join in. We ask that the party package have a minimum of 8 children participating and a maximum of 16.

Please note that all birthday party packages are also available at an off-site location of your own arrangement (backyard, park, or school gym, for example). We still provide swords and lessons! Travel time of more than 1 hour (round trip) may result in additional costs.
