How to get Started 

What do I need? 

To get started in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), an individual typically needs a genuine interest in medieval history and culture, as well as a willingness to immerse themselves in a vibrant community of like-minded enthusiasts. Beginners may find it helpful to attend local SCA events and meetings to meet members, learn about activities, and discover areas of interest. Basic attire, such as clothing inspired by the Middle Ages, is often recommended for participation, although many groups offer loaner garb for newcomers. Additionally, a respectful attitude toward safety guidelines, and the principles of chivalry and courtesy is essential. While specific requirements may vary by local group, enthusiasm, curiosity, and a willingness to participate in various SCA activities are key to embarking on a rewarding journey within the organization.
