Welcome to the Stronghold

We are a group member of the SCA. The Society for Creative Anachronism Inc. a non-profit organization dedicated to the research and re-creation of medieval and Renaissance (pre-1700) culture: arts, sciences, combat, speech, dress, and courtly manners in all areas of everyday life.

We are located within the Barony of Skraeling Althing (Eastern Ontario) in in the Kingdom of Ealdormere (most of Ontario), our boundaries follow those of the County of Renfrew include the Town of Petawawa, Deep River and the City of Pembroke in the beautiful Ottawa Valley.

What is the SCA?
The Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (SCA), is an international, non-profit, educational organization designed as a hands-on, learn-by-doing model to research and re-create European life prior to 1600.

At our events, members strive to recapture the ambiance of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. This requires research into such topics as clothing, weaponry, armor, food, music, and innumerable other arts and crafts. We then attempt to practice and teach what we have learned as authentically as possible, by constructing reproductions of medieval artifacts, practicing the arts and crafts we have researched, learning to fight with a sword and shield, and so on.

The SCA began with a small backyard tournament in Berkeley in 1966. It was incorporated in California in 1968 and has grown steadily to a membership of approximately 26,000 paid members, with an estimated figure of perhaps double that number who participate without formal membership. Members can be found in the United States, Canada, Europe, the Middle East and Far East, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.
