Who We Are

The SCA is a place where we do things the hard way.... intentionally -Joshua of Schattentor

Here in the Black Hills of South Dakota, we are a group of historical re-creationists who learn and craft with skills of times gone by. We are all   enthusiasts of history and what it can teach us about living a good life in today's modern, hectic world.  

Activities we do here in the Shire include, 


-Sword fighting in armor, 

-Leather working, 


-Singing and Dancing

-Medieval style camping


-many other crafts

If you are a fan of good food, deep conversations and perhaps sharing a song, poem or tall tale around the campfire at nights then we just might be the people for you.

So come and join us, the possibilities are endless
